Oh no! Hope that you'll bounce back soon.Just as I was starting to be a good boy with my diet and training, I caught a nasty cold from the wife/kid... Probably shouldn't have trained the first few days, since I've got it much worse than either of them.
I managed to finish
In the last ~3 miles I had one guy manage to stick on my wheel, and he rode with me to the top as we caught 2 more riders with around 1 mile to go. So I ended up in a "sprint". Nothing like 1 minute @ 400+ watts and 2,200m to really finish off a ride.
I finished 1 minute off the podium, which is a both encouraging and a bummer. Really proud with the effort today but I have a little bit of that "what could have been" feeling. Maybe I'll have to give hill climbing another try one day!
