Crackle!, Zap! Hisssss. - Time to reboot.

Sunday, December 02, 2012

On the 20th of November, I turned in my first complete dissertation draft.

That same afternoon, I was invited to pre-Thanksgiving buffet.

That evening - I became sicker than I have in a long, long time - I was completely down for two days, and didn't recover until last Sunday.

So until last Monday, I had not done any exercising for three weeks. I was really out of it, and was eager to ease back into it.

Tuesday, Weds, and Friday were spent on the trainer, just trying to build some cardio back. I was feeling good by Saturday, but wimped out because of the cold.

I almost did today, but I was determined to get out, even if it was cold and windy. But as it turned out, the weather cooperated at the last minute and I pushed off on my Cervelo this afternoon to a rather balmy 44 degrees F with light winds.

It wasn't the fastest ride, but it was a nice 16 mile ride up and down the river. While it was a little windy on the way back, I really didn't mind too much. It was just sooo nice being out on the bike once again - and with ol' man winter at our backs, I don't know how much riding I will be able to get in before I'm relegated to the trainer for the rest of the winter. I can do cold - but I can't do icy bike paths.

Anyway, our local ski areas are starting to open up - time to jet out after work and do some night skiing!

Reboot! Re-Spark! Onward!

    Thank goodness! I thought from the title that your computer fried. At least with the exercise you can reboot and start it again without any financial burden.

    Congrats on finishing the first draft. Yes, being sick is sucky. Glad you're getting back to your routine and healthy.

    Getting sick after a period of stress is not an unusual occurrence. And there is no question that writing a dissertation is stressful. Glad you are back and doing okay.
