Day Three: DOA

Last night I bailed on my ride. I was feeling crappy and my hip hurt from my little fall. Mainly I was exhausted. So I debated and listened to my body, getting a ride home with a friend. I felt like a complete LOSER.

As the night wore on I started to get a sore throat and feel a bit achy. By bedtime I had a fever and a headache.

I am now sitting at home, too sick to work. It turns out my body was trying to tell me something yesterday and I am sure glad I listened. I still think I can do the 3 day Pact, as I am going to Bike!bike! in Atlanta this weekend and will be riding everywhere.

Moral of the story: Follow your instincts and listen to what your body is telling you.

I am hopeful a day of sleeping and meds will heal me enough for my weekend trip. I have been looking forward to it for months and would hate to be sidelined with a cold!

Will try to blog from Atl... if I am not able, see you Monday!


  1. a big ARRRRRRRRRG for illness. Hope the rest does your body good. You should come get some movies from the library!!!

  2. Don't feel bad; I don't bike when I'm sick, either. That's the fastest way to burn out...or stay sick for the next month. Feel better soon, and let us know all about Bike!Bike!


something on your mind?
