Towards the end of last week , over the weekend and today, I have had some trouble breathing. It started last week during the hot weather with a tight chest and shortness of breath – although I could still exercise – 30 mins on the bike on Thursday and a swim on Friday morning, a simulated time trial on Saturday using my new TT bar extensions – and a run, mountain bike and swim on Sunday! But I still feel quite tight afterwards and I am having trouble at night – I just don’t feel as if I have slept properly at all.
I am wondering if it is some form of hay fever – and hopefully with the start of the rain it will go away – but it is quite worrying.
Rode the creaking Mountain Bike in today. God it makes a lot of noise and needs a good service. It seems to be the cranks that are creaking – so I presume there are some loose bolts somewhere – but not sure where.
I bought some TT extension bars the other day for my Trek Madone. They were pretty reasonable - £80 or so from Wiggle – and I tried them out on Saturday evening. At first they make you feel out of control – but once you smooth your riding style out a bit – they are quite comfortable to use – and rock solid. I’ll do a proper review later….
