getting ill before a race

Hi All

I've been training for a few months now and after a last weekend of training doing my first open water swim(in freezing water) in Heron lake on the Saturday and a long cycle in the pouring rain on Sunday I've come down with a spot of flu!!

My first major tri of the season is 3 days away and I feel rubbish and woulod be gutted if I missed it. Does anyone think it will be worthwhile holding out and hope on making the race or should I just say it's no good and wait until next time.

    If youre not feeling really up for it on the day, i'd say scratch it. Save it for another day when youre firing. But thats just my opinion. [:)]
