The Dog Days

I was supposed to ride three hours today. For some strange reason, I had to cut the training session short by a half hour or so. Maybe this had something to do with it:


About two hours into the ride, my chest started to feel constricted. My legs were fine and my heart rate was normal, but it just felt like I couldn't get enough air into my lungs. At that point I decided it was probably a good idea to head home.

A cold front is supposed to sweep through tonight, and the temperature should be back in the mid-80s for the next week or so. The change is certainly welcome.
