1/16/12--I Treated Myself...(Part I)
Monday, January 16, 2012      1 comments

Last night, I made it to the gym. After spending all day in my jammers and watching Eight Legged Freaks (for my money, the finest giant insects threaten a town/city since the days of Burt I. Gordon), I got up and headed to the gym. I had planned... Read more
1/14/12--Sooner or Later I'll Get to the Gym
Saturday, January 14, 2012      5 comments

I thought today would be the day I get back to the gym and tough out 30-45 minutes of mind numbing work on the elliptical or treadmill or rowing machine while listening/watching whiny music videos or closed captioned "news" programs. I had my sh... Read more

Friday, January 13, 2012      2 comments

My bed is my opium. Especially on a cold, grey day. It's nearly impossible to crawl out from under the covers. Today, that didn't happen until it was too late to hit the gym. It hasn't always been like this, though. When I first heard those... Read more

So I'm at work to night. This supervisor from another part of the plant wanders through my department, stops in front of me and just stares at me. After a few seconds, I started getting creeped out. Then he started to tell me where I grew up, my... Read more

I went for a run. Didn't get on the bike or make it to the gym. Oh, well.... I had planned on getting out on the bike around noon. Just about the time I started gathering my stuff to head out the door, my girl friend called and wanted to t... Read more

I finally got off my butt and Frankensteined a rear bike rack on to Frau Blucher. I've meaning to do this for a while. Frau has become my short hop commuter bike. Long commutes are handled by Blue Steel. One type of commuting I've not been able ... Read more

I went for a ride today. I waited until the temp dropped to about 25 with a wind chill of 14. Perfect weather. I cruised up to the Drive Thru for a Dr. Pepper and a scratch off lottery ticket, then headed to the north side of town for a cruise u... Read more

So today I was laying around my apartment, nice and warm and snuggled up on my couch nursing a grape juice hangover (Welch's Sparkling White Grape Juice, to be exact) and trying to figure out what to do with my day. From about 2pm to 7pm I noodl... Read more

Wednesday, December 28, 2011      1 comments

I've got this week off from work and have spent a fair amount of time napping and just hanging out. I had great plans for this week, but seems as if my mind and my body have taken charge. Instead of getting cheesed, I'm going with it and seeing ... Read more

Okay,it would seem I've not been around for a while. Here's the deal. Back in the summer (I'm thinking Junish or Julyish) I got rid of internet and cable. The package I had was just too expensive and I was in a hole. So, in addition to getting r... Read more

This cross season's been rough. First, having worked 6 and 7 day weeks since early July cut into training and I lost fitness. Bigtime. I was able to keep my weight stable (+/- a pound or two), but really didn't maintain the fitness I had after G... Read more

Today was the first OVCX race of the season. It was at Fishermen's park in Louisville. It's a brutal and incredibly fun course. And I missed it. First, my alarm didn't go off and I woke up too late to get to my 9:30 race. No biggie, there was an... Read more

Monday, in the midst of 100+ heat index weather, I took Baby Stewie out for a mtb ride. Itseemed like it had been forever since the last time Stewie had tried to kill me. Sure, we'd done a few commuting trips, but his front tire kept going down ... Read more
