So, this probably falls under “irony” or something…
Wednesday I tested positive for COVID-19, after two weeks isolating from my wife when she tested positive.
The flu symptoms have hit me hard on Thursday and Friday, so I’ll be out of training for at least a week, maybe two (or more?).
We’ve been fine and safe for two years until now, and I’m finishing my first 12-month stretch of structured training.
I had my second XCM race of this season scheduled for Saturday, which I obviously needed to cancel.
Here are the twists:
- Weather in the Philly area is so bad this weekend that the On The Rocks XC and XCM race was canceled due to weather, so I don’t actually miss it because of COVID.
- Weather is so bad that I’m not going to lose out on great Spring riding opportunities this weekend either.
- With the next XCO World Cup race this weekend, I can watch it without regret!
I just thought it was interesting…
