Friday Doldrums Blogging

Morning weigh-in (Thursday): 176#, 9% BF
Morning weigh-in (Friday): 176#, 10.5% BF

Yoga Wednesday night, followed by dinner at Which Brew. Gym, plus running, yesterday followed by a turkey sub for dinner. Tonight will be towpath/Sals, then off to meet the crew at Grumpy's, a BBQ/rib place in Allentown where I've never been.

I don't have much to say, but this should prove inspirational. Now go play outside!

Morning weigh-in: 175#, 9% BF

After the gym yesterday I cruised over to the Wal-Mart, bought some socks and underwear, and while there I bought a few "gingham" (whatever that might mean) shirts: short sleeve, button-down, plaid polyester. I bought them for work, but at eight bucks a pop I'll wear them as riding jerseys if worst comes to worst...

Meanwhile, the Lizard Princess: I saw a post on James Wolcott's blog where he was ragging on those outraged by Paris's expecting & getting special treatment; his reply was essentially "welcome to the real world!" (Though I think he actually used "modern world.")

My thought was yes, the glitterati have always been playing a bit above the law, but back in the day we would not have seen this kind of circus for less than a murder... so here's to DUI, the great equalizer.

More from West Virginny

Morning weigh-in: 175#, 11% BF

This is a shot taken by Steve, our team captain. Tom (wearing the helmet) had just completed our last lap and the race is over. Our results can be found here (we're "Sids Bikes 2," click on the team name to see our stats) and our other team's results are here -- they took 3rd in their division if you can't guess their name...

I still haven't posted my photos, but I did narrow down my selection to 42 pictures, which I'll post probably within another day or so.

By the way: yoga yesterday, gym today -- no ride: thunderstorms and fatigue. Tomorrow is more yoga, then Thursday I'm back on the bike. Saw the coolest storm cell today, looked like a mushroom cloud, something you'd see over Bikini Atoll.

More Fun In West Virginia

Morning weigh-in: 175.5#, 9.5% BF

I'm back, had a great time. I have about 100 pictures -- took over 150, but I've already culled the real duds -- of which maybe 50 merit posting, stay tuned...

The race was awesome.
