    That's an awesome picture. Should be on bike magazine.
    What i can't tell is are you jumping on your back/dismounting/stuck on the saddle?

    Supposed to be a training day, but tweaked my ankle. My leg doesn't have the torque yet for real climbing. I can hit a high wattage on the flats, but when I dial it up and there is resistance (hills) my leg is trashed the next day.

    I've put in 1600 miles since my ankle surgery, at this point I may tone down the riding and incorporate some weight training; my left leg somehow needs to catch up to my right leg and just riding is not working.

    I tried something similar for riding outside - right glove for wiping glasses, left for wiping nose. That didn't work either.

    Yeah, I needed something to think about. Ran out of Galactica episodes and decided to try Mad Men. Doesn't quite grab me -- good though. Maybe House of Cards.

    Buy more clothes. It's worth it when it happens more often. That and ride indoors.
    Do you think we're gonna make it? / I don't know unless we try \ you could sit here scared to move / or we could take them by surprise

    Yeah. I have a Roubaix-lined vest that I never wear because it's normally too hot. I was going to put it on eBay, but now I'm glad I hung on to it.

    This morning I rode in a summer weight kit.

    Tomorrow morning I will need a base layer as well as arm and knee warmers.

    Hate me now and pity me in June, July, August, and September.

    Went out for an hour of 80%, and broke a chain after 45 minutes. First time ever breaking a chain. The pin just came out ny the looks of it. Right in a turn lane when the light changed and I'm putting in a bunch of power to be courteous to the cars behind me, theres a loud BANG and my back wheel pops up and comes around the side. Looked down and was somewhat relieved it was only the chain. Sucks having to fix it this late at night though

    Glad you didn't go down or rip an ankle up on the chain+rings.

    I suddenly have a larger choice of jeans to wear. The ones that I wore last time I was in race shape suddenly fit again. That's a nice surprise and a great feeling.

    First real day back in over a week. Sinus infections ****ing suck.

    5x10"x5 hill sprint intervals this morning. Focusing on smooth power delivery at ~115rpm and shifting up smoothly. Neuromuscular power for the efforts (I was averaging 600-630w).



    It was cold.
    Attack in the feeling because it says I'll win absolutely.

    Couldn't finish my intervals last night due to the cold, it was freeeeezing. The rest of the week is going to warm up, I'll just man up more.

    Hands are now good, but the feet are freeeeezing.
    -Cat-3-o-meter: TBD :/

    I have the opposite problem. May need to switch to a two-glove system.

    Make sure there's room for the liners though, gloves don't work if they're too tight.

    I wore snowboarding gloves over the weekend. Hands were still cold but shifting/braking wasn't as bad as I had expected

    I think this may be an issue with the ones I already have. They're slightly oversized (wind/water proof) but not enough to wear liners underneath. Wamp wamp.

    And glad it wasn't a full speed sprint.

    I was wearing wool liners under ski gloves and found out by accident that even though they weren't tight, the elastic in the wool liners did enough compression for my fingers to shut off. The morning I forgot the liners, the ski gloves were much warmer. I lasted maybe 10 minutes with feeling instead of the usual 5.

    *sigh, sure kwaki will love that last sentence.
