Feeling Itchy…


June 2013

Three days was enough. I was still worn out, just plain old tuckered out, when I got home. Having been sick since Monday and off the bike for the last three days, I’d gotten to a point where I had a tough time sleeping. I took a 30 minute nap and dressed for a ride. Probably too soon, but I didn’t care… I was feeling itchy to ride. I took it very easy for my normal 16 miles (about 17 mph average after I split from Mrs. Bgddy and the kids), and worked some serious gunk out of my lungs.

I know there are folks out there who will disagree, but I know when I’m saddle ready. I could hardly contain myself when I got home – I need my fix that bad. Yesterday, on the other hand, there was no way I was getting on the bike. That’s how I know I’m good to go.

So I tooled about town and finally stretched my legs out and it felt good. I’ll see what tomorrow brings, but Saturday and Sunday, it’s on.

I’ll sleep like a baby tonight.

    Glad to hear that there has been at least some improvement and you were able to get out and turn the cranks. Take care of yourself, though.

    Good for you! There’s nothing quite like fresh air to clear up gunk at the END of an illness (like you said, not during). Happy healing!

    Glad you are feeling better mate. Enjoy your weekend!

    Giddy up brother, back in the saddle. The lungs can catch up later.
