I'm Trying... Really.
Time was slim today. I couldn't go too far away from home today due to the fact that stove guys had me on a super short choker leash. But I still squeezed in a quick road loop this morning.
Legs felt pretty spanky and I think much of that was due to a solved breakfast issue that I've been having. What breakfast issue you ask? Well, I've been finding that my breakfast has been sort of sitting in my belly and not digesting quickly enough before my a.m. ride. Natural peanut butter is a real gut buster, Jeeezus!! So today I mixed up a Vanilla Whey/CytoCarb II/Skim Milk Shake and felt nice and light on the pedals come ride time. This just may have solved my weekday breakfast issues. Or at least I hope.
I must say I'm a bit burned out on the road, but with the massive amounts of rain we've had I don't see quality saddle time on the mountain bike until we get a few dry days. Frig!
I'm like the king of roadside peeing anymore. With the chilly a.m. temps, the coffee, and the hydrating, I spend half my ride just trying to get to the next secluded spot to drain. I really have NO idea how chicks do it. Eeesh. BTW, be glad I didn't use the "stream" pic. That one I sent in to some Pee-Porn site and made some quick cash. Did you know there is a whole porn genre called "talentless road side peeing cyclists"?
So I got nice 2 hour loop in and never had to abort due to the stove guys calling my cell. Unfortunately said stove guys did not call until after 5 p.m. today. Again I say... FRIG!
B-Man and I sat around the house most of the day waiting for the guys to finish installing my stove and breaking down the old 2 ton Chambers stove to haul away. All went good (enough) until they went to install the gas line and of COURSE my 1920's era house has some out-f*cking-dated gas line and the new one will work without a new adapter which they did NOT have on the truck. So NOW I have to go through the whole deal again tomorrow. One more time.... FRIG!!! Sure old houses are cool, UNTIL you have to get shit done. Then they are a pain in the f*cking ass. I would kill a horse for an apartment about right now. Home Ownership- The Big Lie.
Might try to squeeze another quick road loop in tomorrow, OR I might just save it for some longer miles on Saturday and try to get max XXC work done in the a.m.. Who knows?
Gotta spit, B-Man beckons.
