Got up at 7 this morning for an hour ride before class. As I topped out of the first climb (about 8 minutes, and 14 minutes into the ride), it was like someone slapped me with fatigue, sleepiness, a headache, and pain in my ears.
I have ridden early (and even earlier) before. I did not eat before I left the house. I did not drink coffee. I was not terribly dehydrated. I did not sleep so well last night. It was colder (56 *F) than it has been and I felt like I could have used some arm warmers.
On the climb, I was a hero. I kept a good pace, stayed on top of my gear, and had good form. I took a minute at the top, and decided to head back. I just didnt feel good.
I have about 4 weeks until 'cross season and I feel like I am wasting time! Should I chalk it up to a bad day? Eat something tomorrow morning? HTFU?
