I doubt it. You don't know how to be boring.

Well, I have to admit I didn't get it anyway! Not that it was boring, but I couldn't figure out what LT meant. I'm pretty naive.

Maybe he misspelled LT and it's really something else. Actually this isn't boring at all, sitting here thinking about what it is. Kind of like Wheel of Fortune or something

LAWRENCE TAYLOR??? While accurate, it is wrong.
You won't find any Lawrence Taylor fans in this house. Nuh-uh.
LaDanian, maybe (though he should NOT be called LT, that's been done. Find another nickname)

I just get carried away with myself sometimes.
LT is Lactate Threshold which I understand is not a place you want to be for very long. It's "The Burn"
So, I figured it would be good to know when I'm there and I think I found that out over the course of my 35 mile ride. Boy, I just read that back and I'm not sure it's any better than the first go 'round.

Anyway, I think one reason I had less trouble with 35 miles than I thought I would was because I would dial it back just enough when I felt my legs start to tire and burn.

That is the most boring post I've ever read.

"LT" = Light Touring, a reference to the occasional cyclist who does a short road trip with everything packed in his/her front panniers.
