I was coughing all night long and had a massive runny nose last night and this morning. Hit the hay at around 9 and woke up at 2 – could NOT go back to sleep so embarked on a major technology project in our basement.

At around 7:15 AM I saw that Dean J was committed to an indoor workout at Seattle Multisport so I figured why not, at least it will help clear me up by sweating some. On the agenda was a 24.8 mile rolling course similar to the traditional 10 km route we do for testing but it was all stretched out so the hills were 1-1.5 miles long.

Right away I knew I was not going very well... you know that light-headed feeling when you are sick? I had it. My watts were barely over 300 on the inclines and around the lower 200s on the descents. Oh well, I just tried to roll it and stay consistent.

About half way in I had to stop pedaling and stand for a few seconds to catch my breath and I had to do that again with about 10 minutes left. Having to constantly blow your nose is also a huge distraction.

In the end I finished a mediocre workout without killing myself and hopefully without going too hard so I can try to go harder tomorrow morning.
