I finally felt good enough to exercise this morning.  I did take it easy with a nice steady paced 45 minute swim.

16 mile Zwift race.  I didn't have the normal energy I have for these Monday night races but it felt good to push hard for a bit.

I felt a lot better this morning even than yesterday, although I'm still not 100%.  I did a 5 mile run outside. It was a beautiful morning and it felt really good.

Last night I didn't feel well at all, then I was up coughing for a few hours.  I just slept in this morning and I still don't feel quite right.  This is a doozy of a cold.

I slept sooooo much better last night.  I didn't even get up once and I don't remember coughing at all.  I therefore felt rested this morning.

I did a Zwift work out that pushed me a bit to ride hard but not too long.  It ended up being about 12 miles.  

Hopefully I will be close to feeling 100% on Saturday for the Tri.

Havasu Tri. 
 

Swim was a bit cold but not bad. Swimming into the channel we were swimming directly into the sun and there were a lot of bodies so it started out rough, but once we turned around I settled in and swam well. 43 minutes. It was longer than it was supposed to be a bit over 2000m. 
Transition went fine then off on the bike. I was riding hard but going really slow. Everyone and I mean everyone was passing me. I thought my sickness was making me feel like this. I checked my tires but they weren't flat. I had checked my wheels before Thera e so I didn't think to check to make sure they were spinning freely. Final at about mile 7.5 I figured out the front brake had been bumped and was pushing on the rim. Once I fixed that I was back riding like normal and passed most everyone who had passed me early. I figure it cost me about 25 minutes and a lot of energy. Finished the bike in 1:24 but it was just not 21.2 miles. 
Transition to the run was quick and I ran a comfortable pace averaging 7:26/mile which made me happy. It was also a bit short 5.75 miles. 42 minutes. 
Overall it was fun and it was nice having Blake here to do it with. I wish I had figured out the brake thing earlier but I learned a good lesson and got in a better training session out of it!
