After Finaland the team went back to Antholz for a semi easy week. Energy levels were fine and all was well, except for the fact that I was sleeping more than usual. This may not sound like a bad thing, but it was out of the ordinary for me. Since this was a minor issue at best I let it slide and didn't think much of it.

Turns out I wasn't crazy. The next day I woke up with an upset stomach. I had little difficultly getting down my normal breakfast... That was the last full meal I've had since then. Nutella doesn't even sound appetizing anymore. That's when you really know something's wrong. I feel drained and constantly have an upset stomach. On one occasion I got up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. The head rush was so bad that all I remember was holding onto the door frame and breathing, next thing I knew I was on the floor, wondering why my perceived bed felt so different.
So as you can see I'm not doing so well at the moment. Thankfully I still have enough time to rid myself of this malevolent intruder before the first race in Rupholding. But, the sooner I can recover the better. I'm on some pro-biotics coupled with the usual battery of vitamins. It seems to be going in the right direction- slowly but surely. Any suggestions?
