Feeling The Burn
..Not from riding fortunately, just from poison ivy. I think I took it a little too casually to begin with and now it's getting bad. I probably didn't work hard enough to clean it off to begin with and now it's spread to shins, knees, elbows, triceps and moving towards the feet. The first 3 days it was contained to a very small area on my shins, then one morning it was discovered everywhere else. I guess you gotta take this stuff seriously to begin with or feel the itch later on. What I have learned is doing somersaults into the weeds is really not a good idea at all this time of the year.
Riding is going well, I was able to recover well from Saturday and besides a few sore spots from cramping I was ready to train on Tuesday. Today was a pretty solid dig and I hope the weather allows something tomorrow too. It's great to be back in the groove of riding and feeling good, now if I can get this itch off my legs, it's starting to look pretty nasty.
