Yesterday was the penultimate round of the slush cup. The race was near the northern coast of Sealand, about 2 hours drive from our house. There are around 30cm of snow covering the country, it was -3C and I have a stinker of a cold so I decided to bail out yet again.
Oddly enough I don't even feel too bad about not doing the race because I know that it wouldn't have been fun at all. On the race website, it said that most riders would be happy to complete 1 lap within the hour time of the race and I can see from the race report that most people had a long walk with their bikes. I am very glad that I opted to stay home instead.
DK has had a check up this morning and the surgeon was really happy with him. He has gain ½kg in 2 weeks and she could no longer feel the join in his colon (don't ask how she does that...) That means that the dynamic duo don't have to go and see that particular member of the medical profession for another 5 weeks.
