Found CycleOps Fluid Trainer!

I picked up a new toy to add to my cycling training.  I looked it up on the Cycleops site and it is not the newest Fluid2, but the one before it.  I had to do some lubing of the screws and tighting bolts to get it back into good shape.  I tested it out with my TCR and so for so good.  I just need to get the Spinerval training videos!

I can have a spinning class in my own home now!

Respiratory Muscle Fatigue setback

This past week I could feel a little development of a sore throat.  I was not sure what it is because my my throat was not actually sore but felt irritated.  Then I had a little shortness of breath in the evenings when my heart rate was resting.  It kind of felt like someone was sitting on my chest.  I had no fever, no major sore throat, no cold, and no other funny feelings.  It was just when I breathe.  Could it be thatI was developing asthma?!?  I looked around online and found respiratory muscle fatigue.  Basically, the hard breathing from all the exercise during the past two weeks was getting to me.  I also feel the air inland California is just dry and dirty from all the dirt/dust blowing around.  I was just in the middle of it riding through country roads.  

So it is time to give me body a rest...
