In regards to cycling I realize the rhetorical nature of the question.
This past weekend, instead of having one monster (for me) ride, I rode some each day. My MPH is going up. My resting pulse has now falling below 50 (48 in the office an hour ago). I'm feeling pretty buff CV wise right now.
Tomorrow I take my first full week off for vacation since August of 2006. My family and I really need it. We're a bit fried. We're head on down to Ocean Isle Beach in N.C. It's not the greatest beach in the world but we've been going there for over a decade, so it's a known entity.
You'd think I'd be really looking to it, but I'm having separation anxiety. I won't see my bikes for over a week.
Given our travel limitations there is no way I can take any of my bikes with me. Sure, I can rent a beach cruiser while I'm down there and tootle around. And I'll do that as the velopedic equivalent of methadone. I'll get no buzz off of it, but I'm hoping it'll stave off a full withdrawl.
And I'm trying to tell myself that it makes no sense to take my Garmin so I can clock and get credit for all my mileage. I mean, really, who cares? Whenever there is a poll around here about speed or mileage I just multiply my real numbers by 50-300%. The only one who could possibly know the truth is freeranger and he's too busy riding horses anyway.
Thanks for listening. I just had to get that off my chest.
