Unexpected illness

So I wasn't intending on using this blog to record any 'setbacks' but I just can't help reporting this one!...
Only 4 weeks out from the Murwillumbah race (and only 2 weeks out from Matt's 24 hour solo mtb race), we were inflicted with the most horrible gastroenteritis virus, and both ended up in hospital and on IV fluids. I have never been so dehydrated! I guess it was 'lucky' it happened to us on separate days, since each could drive the other to hospital while the other was vomiting (and on the verge of 'dying') in the passenger seat of the car.
I think both of us are finally recovering from it now; but it meant time OFF the bikes!... something that I am not sure we can 'afford' to do right now, so close to our races.
Oh well, that's life I guess.
All I can say is that I am so looking forward to doing some longer rides again this week... I have missed my bike!
