I commented that my chest was sore ofter the race on Friday – citing the lack of training and extreme effort as the cause. That may well have been the case but that chest pain turned into a cough, fever and sore throat within 24 hours… I skipped the planned race on Sunday and yesterday, though feeling dizzy and feverish, I decided to do a test MTB cruise to see how the body felt. Initially I felt bad but started to feel better and better with time.
Today I woke up feeling pretty good and now feel 90-95%. It’s probably not wise, but I will race tonight. 54 hilly kilometers.
I’ll know within 10 minutes of starting if it was a good idea or not.
I’ll know this time tomorrow if it was a really bad idea.
tick, tick, tick…
