Sick & Tired of Being Sick & Tired

I added it up since the Post Nationals Vomit Fest I've been sick 17 of the last 27 days. The flu way laid me after Natz which was no big deal since I had planned a big Wells like lay off. 18 days with out swinging a leg over a bike. Then before Xmas I got hit with a bout of food poisoning. I vomited more in December than I have in the last two years. Now I'm suffering from a cold. I can't win.

The cold is partly because I came out of the blocks a bit too strong. Six straight days on the bike all outside once the New Year started. Probably not wise to be training in such varying conditions as 70 deg one day & 30 the next. Oh well I've been forced to shut down & reboot. I have a slow start planned anyway so no ground lost.

That's the beauty of your season being from September to January. Yes I plan o preemptive striking Nationals being in January, its coming like it or not. This year will be another low key year with maybe a ace a month, most of those hopefully on the dirt this year, with the exception of a few crits.


  1. bright side-- your abs should be killer strong after all that retching!

    get/stay well my friend!

  2. Hope you are feeling better! How are things?
