(sick) (rest day)
Not been a great few days. Came down with a fever on the journey out to Gran Canaria on Saturday and didn't leave my bed for three days. Improving slowly now, but still suffering aches and pains, headache, cough, blocked sinuses, etc. At least it makes the decision not to race nice and easy. Unfortunately I feel every bit as broken as I would have done had I made it to the finish line and I'm expecting to need a few more days to get back to normal. Best laid plans.
