My Grey Area
Motivation was once again hard to come by today. Grey, rain, and a new work week is NOT the most motivating. I mean who the hell likes rain? And 99.9% of the time I'd rather hand wash, a chili loving clydesdale's used chamois than go to work. Nothing against work. Just the work I do. I also felt like I might be fighting off some sorta body funk too. Hate the funk.
By the time five (is 4:50 is close enough?) rolled around I was feeling pretty good and happy to be heading home to get the cheeks on the stationary trainer.
1:30 later I felt damn good. Worked my way up and down the big half of the cog in 39 for some nice, easier Zone 2 work and left a nice sweaty pile of calories on the basement floor.
Afterwards, I made up some tasty Ground Boca, Brown Rice & Beans, washed it down with some Airborne and an orange (also known as "funk-be-gone").
Healthy Food Savings Tip- Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Wheat Pasta.
There was a coupon for a $1.00 Off/2 Boxes in yesterday's paper (For you local, U.S. bound folks). It retails for $1.05 a box at Wal-Fart. A $1.10 for 26.5 oz. of whole wheat? Hell yeah! Or you could look at it through the eyes of your colon (eeeewww)- a $1.10 for 84 grams of fiber!!! Let the games begin... Hey oohhhhh!
In other news, Big Al gave us the low down on Team Bikeman.com '07 sponsors today. I know I'm geeked that in addition to the biggies like Salsa, SRAM, Rock Shox,Avid, and new sponsor Jagwire, we'll be gettin' some hand roasted java beans thrown our way via one of our teammates . Should help to put some giddy up in the legs come race day. Thanks!
I also got some good news from a " wheely" cool personal sponsor. More on that as the week goes on. I don't want to start a big love fest or anything right now.
