Worst ride EVER.
I'm not sure where all of our sunny weather ran away too, but my guess is it got blown away by the ridiculously strong winds we've had recently. After being sick all weekend we decided to head out yesterday for a short ride to "test the waters"...an especially appropriate term considering the amount of rainfall we've had. Well, I'd expected to feel a little sick, but the strenuous breathing aggravated my cold and then combined with the wind and rain pelting me in my eyeballs, this trip truly was my least favorite EVER! I had such a bad coughing fit that I was reminded of my days as a smoker and I could barely breath, then the coughing brought on the feeling of nausea and my ears got plugged and I started to feel like I had the spins again! Oh, yes, did I mention least favorite ride EVER! Still, I remain in good cheer because I'd felt like a bit of a wuss up until that point, but when I realized how sick I've been, it made me feel justified in taking some time to rest. We'll be back on the bike soon, until then we're drinking lots of tea and enjoying a few play-dates with friends brave enough to hang out with us!
