28 September 2008


I dismounted the bike last Saturday evening, and I felt that something was not quite right. I couldn't put my finger on it, but there was a feeling that something was askew.

I awoke Sunday morning to my answer. A sore throat and a nose that was running like a champ! Crud. I was sick.

I don't know if this has been a really bad cold or a mild flu but it has gotten the best of me this week. I haven't ridden to work for the past week, the vertigo won't allow it. When I arrive home, it's straight from the car to the bed (my German Shepherd doesn't really appreciate that either).

The only thing on my to do list today is to pull the wires out from beneath my seat for my electric gear. The vertigo appears to be gone, and the Kleenex box has gone untouched since yesterday morning.

I am not 100% yet but it appears that I am on the down hill side of this thing now, hopefully I will be able to return to my normal routine tomorrow, the dog will appreciate that at least.

Ride Well

well...welcome back. I got sick a few weeks ago and I was hating life too. I find that sleep is the best medicine... and bike blogs of course. :)

Earl, sorry to read that you aren't feeling too well. It's going around, as I picked up a bad cold from my business trip to New York, and have been laying low for the last few days. Here's to rest, and getting better!

It's amazing how fast electric vests spoil us, isn't it?

Maybe your German Shepherd could learn to bring you hot lemon tea?

Hawktane: It's good to be back on the road to recovery. Normal suits me well....whatever normal is.

Lance: The rest felt good, but productive work feels that much better, It's good to be productive again.

Irondad: I'd try that, but I'm afraid that she would just take a liking to the tea and it would never make it to the bedside, as loyal and obediant as she is, I'm afraid that she can be a little selfish at times as well.
