We've been having lots and lots of the stuff. Winds so thick with pollen it makes breathing almost impossible for those of us with allergies. I've had a mild headache, with a few glorious days of respite, for over 2 weeks now.
I got 5 miles done on my long ride Sunday, (yeah, really) and my throat swelled so closed I was gagging as I coughed uncontrollably. Weird feeling to be coughing so hard you can't catch your next breath to cough again. Maybe somebody is growing mustard gas.
The weather guessers say the weather for the Amgen Tour of California is going to be cool - NOT hot. One of us is going to be wrong, and that will probably be me. I HATE it when that happens, but thought you all should know. I sure hope so, because right now I can't train at all. I'm a prisoner in my own house, so I'd like another cool summer like last to enjoy some training time.
Time for some gym work. Ciao!
