I got a freakin' cold, I haven't had a cold this bad in a while, it sucks, zap, zero energy, my whole body hurts. I want to ride the bike but can't get the energy to get ready, also can't get in the mindset to ride outside in the cold. Is it ok to ride if you have a cold? will I lose fitness if I don't ride? can I go to the gym? these are questions that I ask myself all day. Any advise to help get this cold to go away faster will help. I rode with Mike Sohm thursday morning and it was 14 degrees out, my breath froze my hair by my neck. Mike and I sat at Raw Bean and had some coffee to warm us up, we stayed there for 20 minutes before we left to go home. Mike is a really cool guy to ride with, he is a funny kid. Yesterday at work I thought it was going to be a busy day because it is the last day to shop before christmas. NO it was dead. We partied all day, alot of people showed up and it was fun.

I got my new TT bike and it is sweeeeet! I got it dialed in and ready to ride. Yesterday was a freakin' sweet day to ride, I rode in the morning and at like 8am it was 60 degrees out, I put in 4 1/2 in the morning then another 1 hour of power cranks in the evening. Got up this morning at 5 a.m. to go to the gym, why? I don't know, it is kind of nice with not that many people there. Work is still WAY slow, hopefully with the holiday rollin' around it will start to pick up.

I ordered up a new TT frame yesterday. It is a Trek TTX 9.9, 110 oclv carbon frame triple x lite fork and triple x lite seat post. I have all the parts to build up a bike from my last tt bike. The other tt bike that I hade was a Trek Equinox 7 but it had 650c wheels and those don't work as well as 700c. I am way excited to get this frame because it is there top of the line frame, but it costs like 2800$ for frame and fork oohhhh. All I need to get is a set of wheels and that can wait.
