My Lady’s Malady And Me
My wife Maria caught a nasty little cold last weekend and stayed home from work on Monday and Tuesday. Today she went back to work and she seems to be getting better. But now I’m worried about myself. For me, a “sick” day is when I feel too crappy to work out. I haven’t had one since October 2009. A cold would take me out of the state cyclocross championships on Sunday. I’m definitely fighting something at the moment. I’m not yet in its grip and I may stay ahead of it. Yesterday it was great to ride in the sunshine for an hour on my lunch break. Today I planned to spend an hour on the indoor trainer, but now I’m going to rest instead. One thing is certain: I won’t preregister for the race. The deadline is tomorrow and even if I’m feeling OK there’s no guarantee that I won’t be a mess by Sunday. Wait and see.
