      So so good! Sprinting hills, no matter what output level, is guaranteed to make you stronger. Like you're not already the strongest around. :-)

      Don't try to figure out a young child's sleep patterns or why running feels harder than it should some days. Both are unsolved mysteries. Nice work today!

      That is so frustrating Barb! Hopefully this just means that there's an even better bike waiting out there for you (and it had better be worth all the hassle it put you through to find it!)

      "Doc says I have a cough"... did you say, "HELLO YES, that's why I'm here" ? LOL. I say take a couple days and just give the lungs a break. Or take it easy - if that works. Sorry about the $5. Feel better soon, Barb!
