You gotta be kidding me.
Who gets the flu in August...right before their last “A” race of the season? What are the odds of this scenario happening two years in a row? Un-freakin’-believable.
Last year I came down with the flu the day before the Park City Point to Point and was unable to race and I have been looking forward to a rematch ever since.
Then it happened again yesterday. After a pretty normal Sunday consisting of a short ride, some quality time in the man-cave working on bikes, and an excellent grilled chicken fajita dinner at home, things went very bad. I will spare you the details but very frequent trips to the bathroom were involved...all night. Sweet.
Random note: Carbo Rocket goes down pretty well when you have the flu and has tons of electrolytes.
TUESDAY MORNING UPDATE: Got a good night of sleep. Feeling better and the body aches are gone. Still no appetite though.
