a plot! i simply can’t believe it. every single time i plan the so-long-awaited 120 km to rio bonito, something happens and spoils everything. this time it wasn’t the weather but a flu: it has gotten me in the middle of the week. yesterday was very nice (not): nose discharges, coughing, fever, body ache, headache – the typical symptoms of an infection. and due to obvious reasons, another week off the bike… ok, ok… i rode just one day, but the 25 min @ z3 looked like a torture. granfondo is almost at the corner – less than one month to the race and the question is: in what shape will i be at the time?
