My trip to the doc yesterday yielded some hopefully positive results.
Steroids, steroid inhaler, OTC allergy meds, and a reminder to use my rescue inhaler more often. I had hoped to ride my bike downtown today, but I think I’ll wait until the steroids kick in before overdoing it.
Either way, I look forward to this solution working and getting back on schedule. This afternoon I plan to ride my bike inside for a while on the trainer, just to keep my leg muscle memory–even if I cannot push it yet.
Setbacks really REALLY frustrate me. Luckily, I have a solution to this setback now and soon I’ll be back on track with my training. Good thing, I have another triathlon in less than one month!
I am constantly reminded how lucky I am to even be able to do what I can.
