As I type this a bunch of my friends are lined up on the starting line of the 62-mile mountain biking event “Tour De Felasco”. Meanwhile I’m sitting in front of my computer with the flu, feeling jealous and miserable. 🙁
After I finished up my work yesterday I crawled into bed and slept away most of the afternoon. Before doing that, however, I went out to the garage and tuned up my bike. Even though I knew there was less than a 1% chance I was going to feel well enough to go to San Felasco this morning, I wanted everything ready to go just in case. Unfortunately when I woke up this morning I was not feeling any better–in fact, my sinuses are even worse than they were yesterday.
Even though I’m sick, my appetite has been strong. In fact, I’ve been extra hungry for some reason. I’ve been eating plenty of healthy foods, taking my vitamins (as always), drinking lots of fluids and resting. Thankfully I’m not feverish, my stomach–although slightly tight–is fine, and I don’t have a cough.
I’m not going to do any physical activity this weekend, and am going to rest up. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I’ll be feeling better and can resume exercising (even if it’s just light training) early next week.
