So in my last post I talked about how I had gotten through a 38 mile ride in the rain, and how I felt so good that I actually did it. Which it did feel good that I had done it...but at the same time...I now realize that it probably cost me a lot more than I was bargaining for to do it. I had said I was losing my voice on Sunday, now it's Wednesday and I have been feeling like crap all week, and just getting worse. Today I woke up and could hardly swallow because my throat hurts. I haven't been able to train because I've been sick, and today I couldn't even go to work.
So...maybe in the future I shouldn't think I need to do everything the training schedule says. And I think also I might avoid biking in the rain. I mean I own a trainer, and although 3 hours on a trainer sounds kind of boring, I am sure I could find something on netflix to watch to make it go by faster.
Now...maybe this had nothing to do with my ride in the rain, maybe it was just a coincidence. I mean my roommate has been sick for two weeks and a bunch of my friends were getting sick too. But I don't think being in the cold rain could have helped. So in the future, I think I need to think a little bit more before I decide I just need to push through something.
All I can say now, is that at least I get to eat frozen yogurt and fruit smoothies all day. I hope I feel better soon.I have so much to do this week and weekend.
