it was just a few weeks ago I told my friend when riding, the thing that always derails my progress is injury or illness.
today, in lovely ruidoso nm, I woke up, went for my morning walk, had breakfast on the patio. what could be better. within 1 hour, I have uncontrollable shivering. I get in the car, driving in nm in the summer with the heat on! and cannot get warm. I can see myself in the rear view my face is beet red. I can barely keep my eyes open but I have 150 miles to go.
I (fortunately) take a wrong turn and end up in Roswell (where I have a reservation @ the Fairfield). I drag my sick self into bed, sleeping off and on for 3hours. I try the hot tub thinking I can sweat out the virus, but it is summer in s. nm (read 100 degree days) so the tub isn't hot. admittedly I feel better than @2pm but...why oh why when I'm having such success, such positive streaks, why now?
okay pity party over. I will get a good nights sleep and go home tomorrow.
