Thursday 18th July

Went to the motel lobby to eat a continental breakfast 6 am this morning, and whilst spooning my cornflakes into my gob I just got that feeling I didn’t want to do anything other than go back to bed. I really couldn’t face getting back on my bike.

I don’t know what’s wrong with me. We’ve both been struggling with the heat and yesterday even though we hadn’t cycled far it was against the wind. So today the thought of doing it all again just seemed to much.

I looked at mike and told him how I felt, did he mind if I just booked us in for another night and just relax. No problem. That was that, I checked us in for a second night. I finished breakfast and went back to bed. I slept until 11am. Read some of my book, slept some more. Went out for a late lunch. And then read/ slept the rest of the day.

Hopefully tomorrow I will be ready to get back on my bike. We are only going 20 miles to the next campsite anyway. Its by a meteor crater and then the next day we should be in flagstaff where we did have the kind offer of some where to stay. I hope my unplanned day off hasn’t jeopardise that chance.
