In my last post, I mentioned that I’d been ill with the flu over the holiday period. Well, I returned to work in early January, thinking I was set to get training again, only to pick up a stomach bug and end up in my bed again!
Happy New Year! I’m afraid it’s not been a very happy one for me as I’ve spent most of the past two weeks in my bed with the flu. I rarely get the cold or flu throughout the year but for some reason if I do get one, it always hits me at this time of year, which leaves me sitting at home feeling sorry for myself when everyone else is out partying!
I met Andy in October at the Halocross in Dalkeith, after racing to the race, racing the race as good as I can, and racing back to see my girlfriend. In between we had a chat over a coffee, as Andy raced me at the race. We were both on singlespeed bikes; we had something in common.
