Mountain Bike Race today!

Beth - want to be my support - I found a 200k FatBike Race in Stockton, NJ mid-December and just signed up. Should be interesting attempting to ride my fatbike 120+ miles when the most I have done is 40 or so. Better get training!

Rode moderate to hard today. Pushed some segments really, really hard. Had no legs left towards the end. On the way back to the gym to change, got caught in a TON of very slow moving traffic.

-Update-
Longish ride tomorrow...prob as long as I'm going to ride for B2B, which will be a tad under 60.

Brian gets home today! Probably dinner with them tonight and then early to bed so I can get my 14 miles out of the way fairly early tomorrow morning. Then we head to KC for some shopping and hanging with friends, then the Royals game on Sunday. I think!

accupuncture day.
It was supposed to have "an occasional shower". It has already rained 1/2 inch and is still going. It is just noon. I'll do yardwork tomorrow, I guess. At least weeds will be easier to pull. ;)

I got nothing done yesterday. Made a half-assed attempt to finish my commission which didn't work, didn't even bother to start the next one, and never made it to the gym. At least I redeemed myself by getting some business done and getting in a short ride and core workout later. But still, ugh. Today I'm dropping the kids at school and doing NOTHING ELSE until I finish that awful commission, and block in the next one. Then I'm going to go ride my bike - it's too nice out to stay inside!
Startled this guy when I dropped between two houses onto the trail at Dedisse - we had a little staring contest and then he went back to eating his grass and I rode by carefully. It's rutting season here so I don't really like to be too close to the bull elk, but he was a bachelor and looked pretty young. 

Took a geeky photo of my bike in it's natural habitat. It may be old and cheap, but this thing is my most prized possession. I came seriously close to a major meltdown about not having i[...]

another beautiful morning for a ride.  first ride in I don't know how long without a flat.  Granted i was using William's rear wheel.  Tomorrow I am going to put it back on William's bike and adjust that bike and see if that works better.  The clearance between the gear sprocket and the back of the frame is barely a millimeter on my bike.  I don't think that is supposed to be that close.

Late meeting blew my chance to run last night.  And probably won't be able to today either.  Oh, and this weekend is going to be really busy.  Life happens.  Will do my best to get a little running if I can and try to get back on a schedule on Monday.

Good to be back home. We took the cats with us in the motorhome. Harvey travels well and really, we could do anything to him and he’d be happy. Niblet was not amused. He didn’t get carsick this time, but he really doesn’t enjoy traveling. He was happy to be back home.

Foot doctor says it’s time for surgery but he won’t do it though until I get the heart issue fixed. I have an appointment with the cardiologist in a couple of weeks. We’ll see how things go there, but I don’t think anything will be happening here in the immediate future. I’m going to keep plugging away here doing what I can and keeping the nutrition tight to get myself in shape. I need to focus on what I CAN do instead of what I can’t do.

One of the better spin classes of those I have visited lately, more realistic riding than the others.....but still calling out cadences which really don't suit to the gearing that was called out.  Whatever, got it done.
Time for allergy shots....
Heading up to pick up Miss Thing this afternoon.  Will be nice to have her home for a few days.  I even bought her meat at the grocery store....

Darn! Woke up this morning and my right foot was killing me. Stupid shoes. I knew I needed new ones but no....I always wait to long. Heading to shoe store this morning, resting and icing today. Run postponed until tomorrow figured I'd better fix it now so I have no other problems. I'm learning.
Yay!! 182.00 later I have new shoes!!
