Change the record

Still ill, still not riding. Not too bad just feeling off with bouts of headache and sore throat. Been to docs this morning he reckons my chest is ok and I must have picked up a virus or something while recovering, blood test on friday to confirm no other problems. Asked him how long to leave it before riding again he said another week then take it easy. Weekend has been fun doing family stuff and diy but starting to get proper wound up and my heads been up my arse, making silly mistakes and getting loads of stuff wrong. Need to get out riding for the sake of my sanity, dread to think how much fitness I'm losing aswell.

Edit. Did consider going on holiday next week to help recovery (and not misss out on another week of riding later in the year) but Mrs informed me 4 days notice is not enough, she needs to shop for new clothes bikinis etc and summer outfits for Charlie apparently. Ah well...

Not you too.

I've had this bad throat thingy/cold for a week now. I feel like i've accidentally swallowed a golf ball. On Saturday I thought I was over the worst of it so on Sunday I went for a long ride. Big mistake. Both Monday and today have been spent slowing dying.

Hope you recover soon

Same to you. I really don't know how to play it, I'm missing out on a load of riding/training now but I don't wanna start riding again too soon and have a relapse.

hang in there, I know its hard! Try some easy rides - that means no pushing on the hills, heart rate low. If its not on the chest that should be fine!
