Back on the bike after a virus.

Back on the bike again after a week of going through every stage of debilitation by virus. Does a cold virus take all your strength away – so that you can hardly even walk? Anyway it was tough getting motivated to go for a proper bike ride especially as the heat wave has passed and it’s gone fairly cold now – particularly out of the sun.  I knew the ride would be a plod at best but the idea was to start to clear out the lungs and sinuses and begin to spark up the central nervous system again. I guess a couple of long 3hr workouts like this will be needed to get the body working properly again. It ‘s like all the gains in performance over the past month have just completely gone away – but considering that my appetite and strength didn’t properly return until yesterday evening I’m sure that recovery is still not 100%.
