Today and tomorrow are rest days and after yesterdays climbing I'm ready for a break. Climbing days like that make me want to get on my upright again. I can't help but wonder how the much more difficult the higher climbs over the Sierras and then Colorado will be. I guess its best to just take it one day at a time.
My cough had gotten worse the last two days so I finally decided to see the Doc and got some antibiotics and expectorants.
A short bike ride around the valley and a few minutes icing my legs and back in the Merced river felt nice. We finally connected with Tim Colman from Glad. We shared a few beers and dinner and then I was in bed before 8.
