Sidelined

The weekend started off with a great ride with the boys. I didn't feel great at the beginning of the ride, but figured racing can do that.

These llamas made me laugh. I wasn't very quick on the photo-op.

After being promptly dropped by the boys, this elderly gentleman on an awesome old turquoise bike pulled me back to my friends.

I hung on as long as I could. And then nothing I tried seemed to help me grab a wheel. I made it home. Barely. And figured lunch would help me feel better. Or a nap? I woke up an hour later all achy with a fever. Well, that explains the inability to grab a wheel. The fun weekend training plans got sidelined and I've traded them for the couch and some movies. It never seems like a good time to get sick, but I suppose it's better now than last week or four weeks from now!

Take care of youself, and get better soon.

Hot toddies help. They don't cure anything, just make you forget you're sick for a while!

You nailed the right perspective with that last sentence. Let your immune system do its work.

I hope you feel better soon

On my bike team, we have a group of older men, they are fast as heck and make it seem so effortless, while us youngins are gritting teeth and drool flying out, and they look like its a walk in the park
