Occassional thoughts about orienteering

SickOne of the interesting things about sports is that you can plan and prepare, then have to readjust at the last minute. That's what I'm having to do. I'm sick and it is just a few days before one of the season's highlights -- the relay champs.
Sunday afternoon my throat started feeling dry and scratchy. Sunday night I had trouble sleeping. My throat was getting worse. I went to work yesterday, but came home just after lunch.
There isn't much to do about being sick. I'm resting. I'm using my sick leave. I drank several glasses of orange juice. I'm hoping.
Right now, Tuesday evening, I'm feeling a bit better. But, I'm still worried. A sore throat isn't good. It isn't like a light headcold. I'd run with a headcold. But, I wouldn't race with a sore throat.
I've got a few days. I'm hopeful I'll feel better tomorrow and better still Thursday.
And now for something completely different...
I look at the statistics for this page every couple of days. One of the statistics I can get is the search terms that people use to find the page. Some are strange. Today I had visitors who searched for, "Orienteer without a compass" and "Warren Buffett shirtless." Warren Buffet shirtless?!
The most common searches that seem to reach my page are versions of "Serleena's necklace" and "chigger photos." posted by Michael | 7:41 PM
