Quick Update

Just started antibiotics for this damn sinus infection. I've been sick for 4 weeks now. Now, I realize I raced that half-ironman while being sick. That couldn't have made things easy. So sick of being sick.

Turns out my blood pressure is great. It must have been the Sudafed. I bought a cuff and let the Sudafed wear off and then retook it. I took it several times last night and this morning. New verdict?
109/59
(pulse 49)

I'm in the clear!!! One less thing to worry about.

That stupid physical therapist made me so sore I can STILL barely walk (or sit down). Needless to say, I took yesterday off because my body legitimately felt like crap. I'm trying to be patient with myself. If I can do the marathon in June, great. If I'm just not up to it, that's okay too. We'll just have to see how it goes and how quickly my body can recover from all this.

Glad you are starting to feel better. Better to get well and then workout instead of dragging the illness on even longer...just wish I could follow my own advice.

Oh, and I think physical therapists are dominatrixes who didn't look good in leather. They do love to beat the crap out of us to make us feel better, huh?

Hope the antibiotics work!
Good to hear about the blood pressure. Those are really good numbers.

Could I borrow your HR and blood pressure numbers for awhile. Does are pretty good.
