Back in Business

After a 7 week bout of mono, I am officially over the illness and feeling great again.  I am in fact 3 weeks back into training - I held off on spreading the news right away in case of a mono relapse.

I felt like crap in the first two weeks of light training after getting the OK from my doctor, but now, after my 3rd week of training, I am starting to feel strong again.  I was really hoping to get to take part in some hard intensity with the National Team while they were here in my 2nd week back, but I wouldn't have been anywhere near that level at the time.

Here is a short video of training from yesterday afternoon here in Whistler.  Visual proof that I am back in action.
