This weeks blog is brought to you by Amoxicillin and bugger all riding other than my ride to work on Tuesday and the DRR new riders evening on Wednesday.
I have no idea where it has come from but I have picked up a chest infection. I’m no stranger to chest infections but with me they almost always follow a bad cold and they are something I don’t get very often. This one has obviously been an insurgent sleeper infection that has crept up on me before ambushing me throughout the day on Tuesday. I felt like crap, like I hadn’t refuelled properly after the weekends efforts, yet oddly I could have eaten for Britain and made Man Vs Food look like an amateur.
Needless to say, the usual symptoms became apparent and a call to the Scab Lifter became necessary resulting in a course of antibiotics.
On the upside, what a treat to be able to lie-in this morning (Sunday) and then spend the day with HQ1 and Eric for a change, instead of having a bike saddle wedged up my butt for 6+ hours. Don’t tell her, but I have missed riding my bike this weekend, even just for a little ‘un.
Oh well, hopefully it will clear up quickly as there are only 3 weeks to go. Yikes!
Finally, many thanks go out to Heggsy, Neil, Chris and G Diddy for your recent donations that have edged me over the £500 mark. It is all of your donations that make it worth while.
