Ugh, at least it makes some sense

Well, I haven't ridden my bike since the race. I've been sick, with sinus issues, a dry hacking cough that makes me see stars, and a serious lower back ache. My back was bugging me during the race, and if that was the beginning of getting sick, then that explains my lacking the little bit of top end I normally have. I've missed two days of work this week, so that will let you know that I'm feeling pretty lousy.

So I want to race on Saturday.Tomorrow I'll make my decision. Maybe I'll go for a very short easy ride today to see how my legs feel, and to induce a fever to burn out whatever I have, or maybe I'll take a brisk walk to the mailbox. Not sure which.

On a totally different note, a while ago I rented the movie The Station Agent. It was an indie film from maybe 2 years ago or so. I loved it. It was cerebral, comical, and totally cool. It's on my list of movies to buy.

Time for a nap or something.

Remember, Mike, if youare sick, you can't perform to the level you normally can. Hope yopu are feeling better soon and if you do race, kick some tail!

Bearette, you are correct, and being a train nut, and hot dog nut, it was awesome. But even if you could care less about those things it's still a great movie.

Tom, don't I know it!! I hope to see how my body feels after a ride tonight, and when I get back I'll see if I race tomorrow.
