Addiction 2023.4

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

It's not getting any better, either. Embrace the calm.

I don't see why they think putting the baggage claim a mile (at least) from the terminals is a good idea. You have to take a high speed train to get there. And how about a sign informing you to go to level 4, not level 5, for friends & family pickups?

No recent having it... but she and her sister have NEVER had it, even when their parents have in the same scenarios. Remembered about the Paxlovid. Masked and will be heading to a hotel unless she gets symptoms in the next few hours. Thanks as always for the unofficial advice!



FWIW, it's interesting how the while the first thing was a slightly sore throat, I actually knew (or suspected) I was in a bad way was the Garmin stress graph going bonkers. Is already trending down.

Of course, it's possible it was a false negative, but we weren't in the mood to try, try, try again.
Mom has a friend couple where multiple times both have gotten the same symptoms at the same time, and every time he's positive and she's negative.

EDIT: CDC's guidelines for testing If you're asymptomatic but exposed, they say wait 5 days before testing. If you have symptoms, test immediately.

I get similar warning signs from the HRV4Training app. Recently, I was feeling a bit sluggish but not bad, then the app warned me to take it easy (yellow):


So I took it easy for about a week. The numbers bottomed out on Dec. 6, and now they're going back to normal.

Liz and I have also both managed to avoid expressing any COVID symptoms or positive test results. We are both immunized and boosted (3 or 4 times, idk remember), but still, at this point I feel like we have some sort of lucky gene or something.

BTW, I think we're in a really strange place with COVID now. Most people who are getting it - and know about it - are experiencing a cold of varying severity, but nowhere near "The Worst Flu I Ever Had", and I suspect WAY more people are not even experiencing that. Meanwhile our thinking about it wanders somewhere between "It's nothing" and "It's deadly", and it's hard to know how seriously to take it. People are back to interacting much as we had before, and almost nobody wears masks anymore, which means that amazing lull in all kinds of other communicable diseases like colds etc. has passed and now we're getting colds and "that bug that makes your nose run for a couple days" again.

It's hard to know how worried to be about every sniffle or scratchy throat.

Oh, yes. Well that's the plan. The likelihood is that she picked it up asymptomatically from her office and passed it to me, since that's the only exposure either of us had separately. And she had the sore throat before me but chalked it up to allergies.

Yes. My sister is furious about the "concerted propaganda effort that it's mild", but whatever I had in Feb 2020 was many times worse than this. This was worse than a cold, but if I had it in 2019 I'd have had a couple yucky days and shrugged.

Forecasted to be 41 F at the start of my ride on Tuesday. That's straight up frigid or around here! I'm excited to put warmers on the legs/arms, gloves, cap and vest. Maybe even a little light neck gaiter or the beginning.

Of course, it will be nearly 70 F by the end, which is somewhat annoying. When it stays cooler, I can just wear like a LS jersey and not have to peel so much off. The pockets will be stuffed with food and then stuffed with clothing. That's how it goes often times for winter long rides.

Hope you feel better soon and that she dodges the bullet.

Typically 3 days from exposure to illness, with range 2-4 days.

And typical illness is 1 day prodrome (just slightly off), 2-3 days feeling crappy, then gradual improvement so by day 5 (when isolation lifted) most people feel much better. A lingering cough is commmon but not inevitable.

Daughters both have had it twice, neither mrs datlas nor I ever had it (to our knowledge), but clearly everyone will get it eventually.

Not common I learn a new word!

That about matches perfectly - it would imply I should feel mostly better tomorrow or Tuesday, which seems likely.

And for the last, my sister says "challenge accepted". She still masks at all times, even around family, even to sitting masked for dinner and eating solo outdoors. And she thinks we should still be locked down.

Same. I had some kind of gawd-awful viral infection a year ago, lasted three weeks or more, but tested negative twice for the Covid.
