Allegies just kicked my ass the past 3 days...
My body just could not handle an intense spring training load of 55 miles a day cycling at medium high intensity plus the pollen bloom.
The training was fine—I felt great and biofeedback said I was hitting on all cylinders, but the allergies just overloaded me and I had to sleep most of the day yesterday with an overdrawn “bank account” asking too much at once.
Yellow pollen all over the car windows... and that’s why today I will ride with an 3M N100 particulate respirator today and make sure a HEPA IQAir HealthPro Plus Air Purifier is going in bedroom and office... what a frustrating feel-tired hassle—time to do allergy shots again I guess (it has been years since).
Maybe XYZAL will help, I started that today.
Get a 3M 8233 N100 Disposable Respirator (the 3M 3M 8293 P100 is equivalent) to have on hand for things like Coronavirus (COVID-19) and pollen and smoke. Always have several on hand for pandemics and environmental problems. However, they are hard to find now at a reasonable price due to supply issues from the Coronavirus situation.
Below, this was during smoky days two years ago... smoke is the same idea but worse, because sub 10 micron goes in and never come out—the mask captures stuff down to 2.5 microns.
