Do I ride or stay at home...

My dilema :?

I had one of these nasty flu type, shivery, coughy bugs for the last few days - was off work yesterday afternoon but back in today. And the question is....

Do I go mountain biking tonight and risk coughing / feeling pants and generally riding like a wally, or stay at home with a medicinal glass of wine and the Apprentice on TV?

My OH is riding anyway as he guides the group and I HATE being left out of things, so the temptation is to go and be damned. But if i'm coughing and can't keep up I will be like this :evil: (and a bit :oops: ).

Hmmm, decisions.......

    For me, riding feeling under the weather is no fun what so ever, I don't get anything out of it and find it a laborious chore to get round a loop.

    So it's a no, don't bother if you feel like censored , from me.

    :lol:

    Yep, you're probably right :(

    I get really grumpy when I don't ride as well as I should, so I guess I would be setting myslf up for a pretty miserable evening!

    Definitely stay home. You could make yourself more ill.

    I once ended up in hospital by pushing through an illness.

    Don't risk it.

    Well, I did indeed stay at home....

    Very, very bored though so ended up going to Tesco's, doing loads of washing, watching the Apprentice, making a banana cake and straightening my hair :?

    And then got really cross when Chris came home and said they had a fab ride because - as I wasn't there - they could go much faster. Great :evil:

    Men :wink:
