Rest Weekin'

I finally got a rest week after a few weeks of hard riding and racing. It has been great, but I find that I frequently start feeling a bit sick whenever a rest week rolls around. I have yet to figure out why exactly this is, but my guess is that it is because during non-rest weeks I push myself HARD and fight off any potential sicknesses, so when a rest week comes around, I'm pretty shot and my body doesn't have the energy to fight off any more sickness.
I admit that it hasn't helped that I am just getting settled here in Taos (I'm working and just moved into a nice little house and am getting settled). Nor did it help that Victoria came down with pretty severe flu symptoms (no vomiting, but fever and aches) the night before last and we had to take her to the ER because she had been exposed to H1N1 (Swine Flu). Fortunately, she DOES NOT have H1N1, but I am still hoping to keep from catching her sickness.
I also have not been getting enough sleep because it seems like I have too many things to do and not enough time to do them, but I'm working on that, and took today off (instead of doing a 2 hour endurance ride) to fight of a minor sore throat. Fortunately, I'm feeling better and think that I should be good to go when the training time and intensity increases next week.
Just a short update, but overall, things are going well.
Eat well, sleep LOTS, and take care of yourself...
