    Does anybody think the little bike lane jog to the right on Commonwealth (preceding this bike box down the street) is a little weird? I kinda don't get the point of it.

    I got my brand spanking new helmet last night. Pulled it out of the box and immediately dropped it on the hardwood floor. I really hope that doesn't count ;-)

    Purely anecdotally, I find that a recovery spin -- as opposed to a complete day of rest -- helps. If I have a very tough workout, I feel very creaky walking around the next day. A spin seems to lube...
