    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...

    Rode 73 miles (50 along the C&O up to Point of Rocks) yesterday and was too lazy to put the front wheel back on my commuter bike this morning so I ended up taking the fixed gear down off the wall and riding that to work.

    WHY!?!?! -my knees

    I bagged riding today too. Seems a large crowd. Had a 6am practice and by the time I got home I was running to late. Tomorrow is another day. Giddyup!

    I took my first day off work in 2 months yesterday, sat around eating bad food and watching mind numbing TV... HOLY CRAP.... it was bliss. My morning commute was amazing, legs felt fresh, mind was relaxed, and the weather was just dumb! Now if I can only remember to take a few more days off this year!
