A cycling website that mentions drugs, who would have thought? No, this is not a piece on Chris Froome going to ride the Ruta del S(albutom)ol but a piece on my attempts to get as many from my doctors.So, as I have repeatedly mentioned I am supposed to be racing the Kielder Chiller this coming weekend. I have however mentioned that I was feeling a bit ill. That being ill got a lot worse over the weekend and after a nice trip to the doctors I gained some steroids and antibiotics.
Explaining to my doctor that I am doing a 24 hour race this weekend was good as he cleared me to race (yah!), provided I fancied getting pneumonia (boo!). Now it looks like I will be sitting at the side coughing up solid lumps of greeny yellow and cheering on the remnants of the Socialtrack-Wishaw Mountain Biking Club team.
Being ill though, just sucks. The weather has been mostly okay whilst I have been not well and that just make it worse knowing that when I can get back off the sofa and go outside that the orange thing in the sky will very likely have disappeared until next year, I live in Scotland. So just now I am watching cool videos and the one I would most recommend watching is this one, featuring one of my heroes and a guy who I used to see skate the local skatepark bowl and always be amazed. This video is also for a really good cause and backs an issue close to my heart.
