so...i'm it something medically wrong with me? did my parents give it to me? am i just stressed out and it's carrying over to my training? or, is it nutrition? is it hydration? is it high blood pressure?


i was planning on doing my usual tuesday intensity ride this evening...but, i got to the first SE interval after my warmup and started feeling really if i was in REAL trouble when i was a kid...i got cold... 

i made it through...then, i had my 1 minute recovery...we'll see how round 2 goes...not any better...

i called it and surrendered so i didn't pass out on the bike. i only got 29 mins in. i still feel funky/weak.

the immediate email that went out to my coach was what happened... how i think it might be from my stress... but how i also wonder if it has something to do with genetics or the high measurement in my blood pressure when i've seen my doctor in the past few months.

i am going to get something on the books... maybe a stress test... blood test... SOMEthing! 

i hope i'm not sidelined... i'm pissed and scared at the same time!
