The top of the file cabinet

The top of my file cabinet at work is awesome. it is adorned with all kinds of prizes and trinkets from shows and other stuff.
My favorite, and it even talks to me when you squeze his belly

Good nutrition is the key

That's why I'm having a PBJ, Chocolate "it does the body good" milk a banana and a whole bunch of pills. It is "important" to eat well after riding in to work.

Second time this week I rode in to work. Tuesday I was in my own private purgatory riding home after work. It had to be the most I have used the small ring all year, every little rise hurt. Man, do I need more long miles in my legs. Maybe some intensity thrown in for good measure. It's been a while. More chocolate milk, that's what I need.
As seen from the bike in the early morning.
Looking forward to the afternoon ride home. I love my bike (s).

Something new

Something was dropped off at the front door last night.

Yeah, single speed. I would have prefered steel but the price was right.

Find Kermit.

Humid Morning

This morning was the first time I rode to work since late May. With summer hours over at work I don't have to get up at 4am to ride to work. I can sleep in another hr. wohoooo. Believe me that hr makes a big difference. I can get up at 5am with not much trouble, but getting up at 4am it's hard. My alarm would go off and I would just turn over and sleep.
This morning ride was one of the slowest commutes I've had in years. I was in pain from the get go, my legs didn't want to turn the cranks. It was so humid I was soaked 15 mins. into the ride. I really picked a great day too, it rained last night roads were wet, it's raining right now and more showers later this afternoon. It is now 1:50pm. I put the fenders on last night because nothing was going to stop me from riding in. I need long rides, many of them. I'm so far behind mileage wise a 3hr ride hurts.  But you know what, I can ride and I'm happy I can. Pain and all I loved the ride in this morning. It reminded me why I love being on a bike early in the morning.
Get out and ride.
