Still Sick III

It's not so much the coughing up jellyfish. It's the broken sleep from waking up to cough. Yuck. Another recovery day for me, while everyone else is cranking up their final big training week before Ironman Florida. I kept Elisabeth home today from school, too. We might as well all be miserable together, right?

Mr. Steve asked a couple questions in the comments:

About Ironman Florida athlete tracking: That should be available on race day (Saturday November 4th) at http://www.ironmanlive.com/ - you can search either by the athlete's surname (mine is above!) or the number. Be sure that you get names or numbers in advance from any other anonymous blogger-triathletes that you want to follow! I don't yet have my bib number, but I hope it's something auspicious like 666 or 1957 or 1559.

My heart rate monitor: Is a cheapie ($65 or so) Polar A3 model, which I think is no longer marketed. It tells me my current heart rate and average heart rate over time, which is really all that I need. That and my Timex Ironman watch and my cheapie Cateye Astrale bike computer are as high-tech as I currently get. I feel so Stone Age, with nothing to make fancy graphs with.

thanks for the reply.

I hope their server doesn't go down with all of us watching and wanting updates on you. :)

They make things with fancy graphs?

What's a graph?

I don't know! You'll have to ask Bolder. Or Flatman.

The "sick" thing is getting pretty tedious -- I'm sure it is for you too! .... I hope you're feeling better soon. I can't imagine having to REST with an ironman looming in just a few weeks... I'll be sending healthy vibes your way....

The jellyfish bug is a blessing in disguise. You'll be fresh and frisky from all the rest and the rest of us will be overtrained.

Sometimes less technology makes it easier to think and keep track when you are brain dead during a race. Whatever works the easiest!

Holly said...

Nancy .... get better!!!!! UGH! I'm so excited that I get to track you and the rest of the gang "in person" from the course sidelines!

:) 4 weeks to go!!

this not good, nanc. not good at all. although, i'm glad to hear your cough is "productive"... that means no whooping cough... a subject of which i am the worlds foremost authority. have you not gone to the doctor, yet? can't they give you a shot or something? this is entirely too close to IMFL for you.

can you catch a cold by reading a blog? .... um, apparently!
