Spin, Span, Sunday Spun
I was all set to ride outside again today, since high temps were gonna be near 50. But a high near 50 unfortunately takes until 1 p.m. to happen. I got anxious and sadi- "f*ck it". I have enough hours in for my last Prep Week, so I hit the trainer, listened to some Decemberists, and sweat out some calories before B-Man and I headed out to my Dads.
The trainer was good. I went just hard enough, that most of the time I could sing along (badly) with some of my fave Decemberists tunes like The Legionnaire's Lament. Damn I love that song. I have NO idea why, but it always makes me think of those old Tour de France picts of dusty faced riders, riding 40 lb. road bikes over dirt road mountain passes. I'm a nerd. I know. I've been called worse.
I love this t shirt. Steven's stolen bicycle "Madeleine" from The Apology Song.
Death...or Life Begins in the Colon.
In REALLY gross, nothing to do with cycling news. I stumbled upon an advertisement via my dad's Yahoo home page today that almost made me throw up. So of COURSE I'm sharing it here. Let me ask you this... Are you clean inside? Click and be amazed at what they claim is inside you, can help you lose weight and feel younger. And then click here to see a gallery of shit. I'm not kidding. People took pictures of shit they claim came out their asses. I'm not buying that it's real, but I do have to ask myself A. WHO would take photos of shit?? B. Who would fish said shit out of the toilet and lay it ON the toilet and THEN take a picture of it?? Dude if you're fishing out shit and taking pictures of it, feeling "young and less bloated" is the LEAST of your freaking problems. MY GOD!!!
Oh well another week is fin. Back to work in the a.m. and the start of Base I. Weights increase. Rides on the trainer and outside will get longer and I am a few weeks closer to spring and the start of another season. JOY!!!!!!
