There are some things money can't buy...

Doing some personal bests on various lengths in the pool last week: zero dollars.

Hitting an all-time high for weekly mileage in the pool last week: zero dollars.

Sludging through a hill repeat workout in the freezing rain on Wednesday: zero dollars.

Feeling really strong on the bike in my brick and interval workout Friday and Saturday: zero dollars.

Leg pressing a new record last Tuesday: zero dollars.

Running 12 miles of Hinckley Hills pretty strong in sleety snow stuff: zero dollars.

Watching the clear blue sky today and the temperature hit 61 degrees but stuck in your bed after work because you now have a really annoying cold and are achey: priceless.

Well, not priceless. But ironic, anyway.

Poop.

Vitamin C and water to the extreme, here I come.....:)

Stay healthy out there!

Get well soon!!! Hopefully this is your spring break and you will have some time to rest up.

I am thinking the feeling you will have when you cross your ironman finish line though will be priceless!

The look of your friends when you tell them you wake up at 5 am to go run for 3 hrs...priceless.

Beat those sniffles down. Weather is getting better and it's time to ride.

But taking care of the body is the most important thing.

At least all your ailments came at the end of the week after all your PRs! Hope you're feeling better by now!
