    Well, not exactly--corticosteroids to be exact. I've gotten pretty under the weather over the last couple days, and while on the road at a work related conference (self-assigned for networking--I don't know when to take a break) it reached a point where I just about passed out, so I called my doc and he called in a prescription way down to Waco of Methylprednisolone which is a type of steroidal anti-inflammatory to help deal with the symptoms of a viral infection. One of the potential side effects is insomnia and hyperactivity--well, I got them both, and I'm hyper as it is, and I'm driving my friends and roommate crazy as I bounce off of the walls. Anyway, I think it's pretty wild that I'm taking steroids. We'll see what it does do my leg muscles

    Go ride some hills, wait, your in OK, go sprint on the bike. Your legs will not fatigue as fast. Get off the stuff as soon as the Dr says is OK, it is NOT good to take for long periods. It's a miricle drug for many ailments, no one should ever take it without a Dr supervision.
    Those voices in your head aren't real, but they have some great ideas

    Thanks, he's got me on one full six day decreasing cycle. He said to check with him at the end of the cycle and see what he says.
