Back on the Bike — And Back Off

Well, I was a little optimistic five days ago about being back on the bike. It seems that this year is throwing me a lot of curve balls.

After a few hearty days of riding, I picked up some kind of achy virus thing four days ago. It wasn’t so bad in general, but Saturday night my entire lower back hurt so intensely that I was practically hyperventilating with the pain (I could feel a throb of sharp pain with every heartbeat). Not particular to any position or motion at all (in short not a disc thing or something structural). It was worse than my post-surgical pain, and I have a high pain tolerance. I was literally just about ready to head to the ER, thinking maybe caution was in order (e.g. infection of spinal area), but finally around 2 AM it settled down and I was able to sleep and besides I had no signs of any issues with lower body neuromuscular control. Still feeling weak today, but the back pain has gone away entirely. It’s a puzzling rapid onset thing, but I feel a rawness in my lungs too and some overall lingering achiness, so it almost certainly has to be an infection. Puzzling thing is I had a 3-4 day bout of something like this two weeks ago, which disappeared prior to resuming riding. Maybe resuming riding weakened me just enough for it to resurge.

Anyway, my 2013 season is shaping up to be a total loss in racing terms. I guess that’s the way it goes when summer weather arrives in March.
