So… long downtime here, eh? Anyhow, my heart checked out ok, but only after a physical, another EKG (EKG #3 in two months), and an echocardiogram. The echo was the coolest: I got to see my heart pumping. But I didn’t understand a thing of it. But, as it turned out, it happened at the best possible time, because work turned into a giant clusterfuck and well… it would have been very difficult to train at the same time, but it could’ve, would’ve been done.
Anyhow, I started getting back into the swing of things this weekend. Rode 17 miles on Saturday, then rode about 20 on Sunday, followed by a 2 mile run. Monday was a 2.5 mile run, Tuesday was 3 miles, and today… today was incredible. Started up the hill and felt meh… but then I’m not sure what happened, but I just felt incredible… for the rest of the run. I was in the zone and it was just happiness.
