Sick, Again

Still here in Belgium trying to figure out what is next. I was finally feeling better the last few days and then I woke up aching and with a bad sore throat again today. I sat around all day with no apetite and generally not feeling good, although I did get to watch the Belgian national championsips on TV which so far has been the most I've done.
I had planned on racing the world cup in Leiven, France next weekend as a closure to the season, but with the sickness and bad legs the last week it might just be over. I did not petition for worlds, long story short, I did not feel it was worth the money involved to race when I am not able to compete at the level I want. There will be many more years and I've done it already, I know what it takes, and I'm not there yet. The next few days will decide a lot, if I feel I have one more race in me I'll stay and do it, if not I'll be heading out of here and beginning a nice long break of xc skiing and not riding my bike.

You're not missing much at home because we've all been sick with the same thing. We Schoutens are a sickly bunch this year.
