Can I Command Z This Week?
The week started off sweet enough. Great ride on Monday, with great legs, but the rest of the week has thrown me a real training c*ck block. And left me in kind of a d*cked off mood.
Missed out on a ride yesterday due to the rain, tonight I missed out on one due to the rain knocking at the door and then NEVER coming! GRRRRRRR!
I had the bike, rain jacket and was ready to ride, but when I left work the weather radar show some SERIOUS rains coming and I figured I MIGHT make it through the first hour but I didn't want to risk getting caught out on the road during a serious down pour.
Sssssssssssssssssoooo.... I ended up with an hour on the trainer. Actually wasn't that bad and it was a good work out. It just wasn't my two hour ride on the road. Week's hours are at a dismal 3:30 right now. I do have a big ride planned on Sat. rain or shine. So they should make it to my average weekly hours, but this is NOT fun.
Sometimes I really don't know how folks like myself with jobs, kids, etc., do this stuff sometimes. Do I need to just accept the trainer as part of my life now? How do some of you other folks get your weekday training in and in what forms?
Commuting, early a.m., lunchtime rides are not an option for my work/family schedule and responsibilities. What are realistic goals for the week. Right now in my life if I hit 10 hours of riding in a week it was a DAMN good week and 7 to 8 hours is average. Then with weeks like this when I DO get the time and the weather f*cks me it can really be frustrating. I work hard to be this average. Sub par clydesdale is right around the corner! ;)
I also ended my auction on my NiteRider HID light. Figured even if I got what I wanted for it, I'd still need to fork over a little bit of cash towards the PTSB3 I want. Being that I still need some parts, the Mamasita, my Wilderness 101 entry fee a AND that I somehow forgot to pay my Cable/Internet bill last month, I figured I'd better hold off till later in the year. Drat! I'm a f*cking moron.
Why didn't I just go see Morrissey tonight like I really wanted to?? THAT would have soothed the angst.
Alright 'nuff bitching.
Read a good article about Ryan and Brent from Twin-Six the other day. Good background on them and how they got into the bidnezz. You can download the PDF from their site- HERE.
Also some good reading on the Salsa Amigos Blog with Salsa Pro- Jeff Hall. Check it out. Jeff is in full on mode to try to get UCI points for the Olympics. Good luck Jeff! Did I mention that Jeff is part of the T6 group of riders too? Well he is!
Don't think that because I haven't written about the Floydis, the Hamilton twins, Basso, etc., etc., etc., or the other drug scandals that much that I haven't been paying attention. I just don't see the point in talking about it. Oops I guess I just did. Folks had more talent in one finger than I have in my whole body and the f*cked it up. Paid to ride their bike and the f*cked it up. Nice.
Later. It's time to go read some good news to help plan my post ride festivities on Saturday
