Weekend has been a write off so far. Friday was a work day. Three hours of shop, drive home in the blizzard and then 5 hours of reno work with Kiwi. Needless to say I was a little tired. A pre-birthday dinner with the folks (as I will be down south for my real one this year) and then a decently early bedtime. Woke up Saturday with the cause of my off weekend. Felt kinda like the flu, but with more emphasis on wanting to throw up. Not sure what brought it on, but left work early and pretty much slept for 24 hours. Woke up Sunday feeling slightly tired still, but basically normal. I have even elected to take today off the bike (this is a planned rest week) to make sure whatever was in my system is completely gone. Less than a week till departure. No way I want to be sick down south. Basically resting today, drinking plenty and worked on prepping my bike. Pictures to follow on that front. Swap gearing, new bar tape, pop on the Regal saddle, adjust the cables, new chain, cover the logos... still waiting on my new chain rings. Things appear to be coming together. Thats about it for me. We'll try for a couple of longer days in the saddle the next few days followed by some nice short spins before leaving.
