Being Sick Sucks. At little over a week ago I started fighting off a cold/crud and well I lost the fight. By Tuesday I was good and jacked up with a cold/flu. This is such an awesome time of year to being ridng and being sidelined just sucks. I missed out on a really cool sounding 50+ mile epic ride this weekend around Otay Mountain that includes a good chunk of my ride out there a couple of weeks ago. I woke up feeling “okay” this morning so I tried to get in a bit of riding at Lake Calvera which is ride I can do right from my house. I quickly rediscovered that feeling “okay” on the couch does not equate to being okay to exercise. I was a hacking, coughing, phlem hurling mess as soon as I hit the first climb. I cut my normal loop out here short and retreated to home for more cough syrup, comfort food and couch time.
I did take one picture on the ride today. The rider is Steve, a local rider who I met for the first time today. Ironically he was suffering from “The Plague” just like I was. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one suffering. For all my fellow knobby tired brothers and sisters suffering from the crud, best wishes for a speedy recovery.
I have some out-of-town plans for next weekend so I better finally kick this crud this week.
