Cycling to the beach + late night clubbing = no immune system

By , May 23, 2009 5:56 pm

Two weeks ago (9th May) I did a merry little 140km jaunt to Hastings with the tireless MWS, followed by fish/chips/pasties/coke on the beach, and a little 60km warm-down to Ashford before catching the train home. This was actually the longest single ride I’ve ever done (just over 200km = 125 miles) and my body wasn’t quite ready for it. My body definitely wasn’t ready to join Becky’s birthday party/clubbing expedition soon after – as a nice thank-you for staying out drinking till 3.30am, it rewarded me with something quite similar to swine flu, which has taken the best part of two weeks to shake. Bah.

By the way, when Matt got back, he promptly went for a 10 mile run with his mates, and apparently followed it the next day with another 20 mile run and an appearance at the swimming session…

Thanks Matt for providing the .tcx file of the route recorded by his Garmin, which I converted to KML using this converter. I also recorded the route on my phone as per normal, but it was so damn long that the phone ran out of battery before it finished recording…
