The Plague

There’s nothing I hate more than being sick, and I have been sick for going on three weeks now.  It would appear, based on a very much forced upon me doctor visit, that I have walking pneumonia.  That’s the preliminary diagonsis.  We are slowly piecing together the chain of events that could lead to such a problem for someone who has never been this sick in his life.  I was one of those nerds who had multiple years of perfect attendance at school.  In fact, I have more awards than not for my years in school for which I had not missed a day.  Guh.

Needless to say, I have not been training at all.  I have already had to make the unwanted decision to deprecate my forthcoming race from a half Ironman to olympic distance race.  The marathon in October is also looking like it’s going to be a very hard day.  My only hope is that we now have all the issues on the table and identified, and I can get back to training this weekend.
