Legs said “Woohoo!”; lungs said “Fuck you, and the bike you rode in on!” … forgot to dope up this morning, and the asthma definitely kicked the shit out of me today, especially on the climb from Cotton Bottom up to the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon. That’s okay … I’ll do it again tomorrow, and I’ll remember to hit the inhalers first.

I’m feeling stronger … I just need push through the point where my lungs are about to explode when the road turns the slightest bit uphill, then I could really start working on my endurance and longer rides (which will help with the weight loss, which will help with the ability to go uphill).
