Don't beat upon yourself so much
, that is what we are here for.
I'd say you were right not riding the 200K and for going in to the doctor and getting things diagnosed. A throat infection, especially a strep infection can easily spread and cause you larger problems I can guarantee you do not want to deal with. I have and it sucks having IV antibiotic infusions twice a day, 7 days a week for 6 weeks. Cure seems worse than the illness. One thing I have taken away from all the crap I had to deal with in 16 surgeries, countless procedures and permanent renal failure, is to listen to exactly what the body tells you and do that, saying to harden up and tough it out is easy, overcoming illnesses made worse by hard headedness is futility. Hope all is well for you soon. Spring is near by and the usual 100° temps for Texas will be broiling you brain, again.
