Yearly Flu

I contracted the flu this week. A touch of fever kept me off the bike for a few days. Notably, I was sick almost exactly the same time last year... Hot tea, vitamin C, and asprin have been my buddies.

Today I was able to get out for a subdued pace ride. First time since Tuesday.

During the week I made some stuffed pitas. Pretty good. And served well as comfort food.

Next week will be a delicate balance between trying to reintroduce some structured intensity and not driving the sickness into a chest cold. The temptation is to come back full blast. But there's no way to 'make up' the lost time. The time is simply gone...
