The misery continues, I still feel like EFFING crap.  I decided that I was going to suck it up and climb on the bike this morning and had huge aspirations for the ride.  A miserable 22 miles later I pulled back into the garage and it took me about a solid 20 minutes just to catch my breath.  Legs felt great, but this plague has moved from a head cold into my chest.  How do I know this?  Could have something to do with the near seizure like coughing fit I had whilst riding.  I was really hoping to take advantage of the vacant Holiday streets this morning and go for some serious distance,  but it was not to be.  The streets were quite bare today though…eerily bare.  There were some sections of the ride that I actually missed having cars pass me.   Like the section devoid of street lights that finds you passing a cemetery….in the dark…..creepy.  No animal attacks today though,  I suppose the vermin is also on holiday.

 If you need me I will be in bed….so don’t need me.

  1. Sorry to hear you’re under the weather. I’ve been off the bike for 2 weeks now. Was hospitalized with cellulitis, some type of infection in my left leg. Kept me out of work since the end of August and I’m still doing outpatient IV antibiotics. Being out of work and off the bike have had me going nucking futs, so to speak. Hopefully, I can get back to work Thursday or Friday, after the next Dr. appt.

  2. Sorry to hear that you are still under the weather Gene! Hang in there. Remember that you can ride with a head cold, but you should not ride when it gets to your chest! That is only asking for more trouble!

    Get better soon!

  3. Saw your comments on my site and that you’ve added me to your blogroll. Thanks, I’m flattered!

    I read somewhere here that your working a vegan diet and have a suggestion. If you haven’t read Christina Pirello, you should give her a try. She was my vegetarian cuisine instructor at Drexel University in Philadelphia. Christina has a TV show on Public television and has been cooking whole foods for decades now.

    Long story short, Christina was diagnosed with terminal lukemia in her early 20’s and credits her change in diet with saving her life. I have her book “Cook your way to the Life you Want” and find it very interesting. She combines a whole foods outlook with some eastern philosophy (without being over the top). and the result is pretty good. I’ve eaten and cooked her food and n say first hand that it is enjoyable. If I thought I could get the rest of my household on board, I’d consider going whole foods vegetarian also. I have found some great recipes that I’ve incorporated into our meals at home.

    Hope you find her writings useful. Best of luck with your goals!
