Forecast for this morning was fog 'n' frost. Great! My first planned ride to work in months, pysching myself up through flu-infested brain fades and terrorising thoughts of leg failure, lung failure, hill-climbing failure and lots of pain from lost fitness and viral fighting endeavours. So I rugged up, gritted my teeth and readied myself to face the fierce cold and thick, damp air.
Within 5 km I was sweating up. Feverish?? Nope; hot in the uphill exertion, and lack of frost and fog. Ripped off!! But very happy. My ride was enjoyable (apart from the hills - what happened there?? I can't climb any more????) dry, mild. Apparently there is fog out there somewhere.... I I heard some planes somewhere are not landing in Melbourne as they are scheduled to, but in Sydney. Guess I got lucky!
