Addiction 2021.1

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

So you're a yute? Did you do anything interesting this week? I rode a bike and managed to stay out of the hospital.

I almost think I may have had it, in hindsight. I had a slight cold, but no other symptom. No fever, no loss of senses, none of that, other than a sore back. The sore back I attributed to weights, and didn't think twice. Lately though, my breathing is a little worse for wear, and I don't like that. I wouldn't think twice other than the fact that it came on almost overnight, so who knows.
Were you tested?

Have you not been keeping up with the thread? I chronicled many of my activities here.

Nossir. As far as I know, I hadn't been exposed. I've been very cautious, and aware of my surroundings and interlopers coming into my space. I'm likely just suffering a bit of hypochondria, and just starting to feel my age. Someday, I may start acting my age, but that's long into the future.

All good, Bill. You want to be sick from this thing.

I have an important question. In 2021 have you ridden more miles on Tuesdays or Thursdays?

Just got invited to do 100+ miles tomorrow. Just 2 other guys but a lot of climbing. I declined because I've become a wuss. Also got invited to a mtb ride in a fun area. I was planning to do a 40 mile ride with 4K feet with a small group. It's good to have choices but it sucks that I am so bad at decisions.
