Did a ride Friday - cold here in KY (read your post Dn'vr) 35 degrees with a strong wind. Did 16 miles and exeeded my goal of 2500 @ 2800.
But friday evening throat felt strange, saturday even stranger, woke up sunday couldn't hardly swallow - neck glands (tonsels) swollen like crazy. Went in to a open clinic and they confirmed Strep Throat. I wanted to ride today so bad, It was warm (about 60) but Dr said No till swelling soes down (I told Dr I was going to ask for a second opinion - she didn't crack a smile). What a bummer to start 2006.
