I’ve been fighting the cold Ira had for the last week or so and I finally succumbed Saturday night. We had an epic mountain bike ride planned for Sunday and even though I should have stayed in bed, I went anyways. Oh, do I feel like crap. I’ve never taken nyquil or dayquil before and I snagged some while skipping coffee on the way out of town.
The dayquil apparently worked great. I felt decent during the ride. Popped a couple Ibuprofen too and we did an easy 4 hours riding the super rocky Sincline trails. I felt like I could have kept going for a while.
I passed out on the drive home. My cold kicked in super hard last night. Pete just got back in from a Seattle road trip and took really good care of me. But to no avail. I tossed and turned and got zero sleep. Woke up early this morning to meet up with a sponsor at Stumptown and luckily he emailed to say he could not make it.
I feel worthless. And, I have a horibble sunburn! I was so out of it yesterday I forgot sunscreen. My arms look amazing! So I am wearing my red Food Fight t-shirt to minimize the effect.
When did Landis become the man? Matt Hall predicts Landis in the top 5 at the TDF. No way. I say it is going to be Basso-Ullrich-Valverde.
I think my teammate Mark Blackwelder was 2nd at one of the WVC stages this weekend.
Thats all I got. I am super wiped out, thinking about popping some more dayquil though I really hate taking pills. I hope I can beat this cold in time to race the Bear Springs XC this Sunday.
