California - Day Three


Shortly after I posted Day Two, I realized I wasn't feeling too well. I spent most of the night in the bathroom, sitting or hunched over the bowl. I crawled into bed, shaking and chattering, hot but strangely chilled, and passed out.

A few hours later I woke up. After drinking a bit of fluids, I stumbled first to the couch, then to the bed. I'm sure I've felt this bad in the past but for the life of me I can't remember when. I guess we really do forget pain.

Obviously my body is trying to rid itself of something that I took in yesterday. I have no idea what it is, but I'll try and give it fluids and let it flush itself out.

I guess the positive bit is that I'm getting the sick bit done at the beginning of the trip. And I did a big ride yesterday so I can "recover" from that, so to speak.

Back to bed.

Hey there, i stumbled upon your blog somehow, and i just wanted to say that your updates on your training are very inspirational and have given me the motivation to sit on the trainer when i otherwise wouldn't. Being in vancouver, I am quite jealous of your post yesterday and hope you get better soon :)

take care,

Thanks for the note and I hope my inspiration helps you ride better when the warmer weather comes around!

Sorry to hear you are sick. Stay in bed and do not rush back into training mode. This particular sickness may take awhile to get rid of...been there, done that. It sucks.

Enjoy the California sun, but stay low...the Bethel series is looming.

Never ride 7 hours the first day after traveling. A two hour ride will always suffice especially in the warmth.

I was going to try and ride today but didn't feel that great, and after reading your comment I decided to take it easy and skip the ride. Probably a very good thing to do :)
