Yes, there are still two days left before June but I know how this story ends. Why? Because I’m sick again. It was exactly this time last month I was complaining about barfing up my guts and here I am again, this time with congestion, runny nose, sore throat, the works. I think it’s The Bubons.
So it is with unfortunate certainty that I know May’s numbers won’t change.
- Kilometers ridden: 1060
- Hours on the bike: 39
- Elevation climbed: 12,000 meters
- Paracetamols ingested: double digits
Look at the patchwork of my Polar graph this month. It’s supposed to be all red!
But it hasn’t been all bad. I have had one successful self-guided tour completed, plus one more on the road as I write this. I’ve also had 2 custom tours come in for next month in Provence, which will be fun. The sun is even out now and the temperatures are nearly not cold.
I visited my doctor today (7€) and got 4 different types of medicine (7€) to dull the pain till whatever I have passes out of my body. June is right around the corner and Haute Route is right around the next one, so look for more impressive stats coming soon. If you don’t, please come to the Alps on August 18th. I’ll need someone to scrape me off the first col we go up. Here’s hoping the road ahead is as good looking as the one below.
