Hi Jenny. I'm now in a crash myself! Dammit, after a wonderful autumn. Felt 100% well 95% of the time. Really. Climbed really well ! In Greece! !! Drank beer!
You're 100% right: the variation in postviral issues, and the milder, with less "crashes" / post exertional "malaise" / "payback", the more promising the "prognosis", in my opinion / experience. I think Alasdair is doing 100% the right thing, & is also young enough to turn this fully around.
Extra bonus if you miss a year or three - your body isn't as worn out (knees, cartilege, ligaments) as everyone else's! Pick 'em off once you get back into proper sport again! :-)
My sad demise: on attackpoint, & here: Sure i'll be fine in a week or two??? https://www.facebook.com/phil.murray.712/posts/pfb...
