    Default My Morning Commute

    sucked I drove today, despite knowing the weather would be nice. I ate at the "Original Pancake House" in Bethesda yesterday, and by afternoon was feeling pretty nauseous. I'm not sure it was the food, nor do I really have any idea what the issue was really. Still feeling a little "blech" today, and woke up way too late to ride.

    Just another manic Monday.

    I also was not in the mood to bike commute after 50 States and some hill riding yesterday, but I didn't have a choice in the matter. My wife took the car out of town for work, so unless I call in sick, the bike is my only transportation option until Thursday. So I echo your "blech."

    Ha! For once, I didn't overdo it on the road or on the dinner plate this weekend, so it was one of my strongest Mondays in a while. Plus Laurie's been fiddling with my pedal/cleat interface, and my legs feel better positioned than ever -- getting more power and comfort, and less stiffness after the ride. Not to rub it in, but the weather's awesome...

    I drove today also - knees are still aching from 50 States.

    You HAVE to say that!

    And yes, as pointed out, tomorrow is another day. I'm looking forward to it. Needed something good for lunch today to wipe out the remaining ickies from the gut, so Afghan Kabob place was on the menu. I powered through a plate of lamb kabobs and, though they didn't have the gut cleansing effect I need, they were absolutely delicious and made me happy.

    See, what you do is carry a 9-lb chicken home in your messenger bag.

    Although if you're buying 40-lb bags your dog is probably rather larger than mine and you would need more chickens.

    I drove in today too, and I wasn't happy about it -- even though there was no traffic. I'm really going to hate it on the way home. It was my first missed bike commute since early June.
