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!
