Blocked Again (sort of) Part III
More heavy fog in the are this morning meant that B-Man was on a 2 hour delay. Which means I WAS on a two hour delay. Wanted to get this and that done, with a focus on that which is getting out for some mid week gravel lovin'. But by the time I took B to school and waited for said heavy fog to burn off, my "comfort window" was shrinking.
What's the Comfort Window you ask? The Comfort Window is that window that I allow myself of ride time (I like two hours) + allotted mechanical/flat/getting lost time + getting home (if driving) + getting out to the chamois and something less nugget binding and/or getting a shower before I have to get B-Man or other duty.
So today with B-Man not starting school 'till 10:45 and me with a few other duties to take care of, I aborted the ride and did go to the gym (against my will). Once there though I got in the zone, found a mix on the iPod that was worthy of me dropping a sweaty nugget on the StairMaster and weight machines (FYI It was Mix Master Mike- Napalm Rockets. Not my normal style of music at all but it has enough dubs/breaks/scratching and general noise to fuel the fun and help me forge that there is rap in .
I was sort of glad (hey, I'm trying to be positive here) that I went. I had a great workout, upped the weight on the leg press, and had fun in a twisted, the gym sucks, but sweating is good sort of way.
Tomorrow I have tentative plans to join a group for a night ride, so I gotta get the lights all charged and ready. Been a while since I did a group ride, I've been told it's "not a hammerfest" but I'll believe that when I'm not asking for oxygen an EMT or hanging my head in shame. LOL!
This week has NOT been going how I planned, but I am making the best of it.
