I did a hill work-out of sorts and have been even more worthless this evening than I usually am. Bed time.

I owe it all to my 19 y/o son. He tells me I'm a bad influence. I tell him the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Yes, I find 19 y/o sons especially useful for pearls like that, in addition, speaking the unadulterated truth. About a year after I started riding, my then 19 y/o son saw me bend over and said, "Geez Mom, you used to have a "mom-butt" and now you have no butt at all! He couldn't understand my responding to that comment with the stink eye.

"I didn't see you" was my 25 yr old son's comments after racing in the same 50 mile 25 lap "A" training race last summer. I took that as the ultimate complement.

Thank Gaia! Volleyball season is over! 0-10 or something like that. I had nothing to do with it.

I'm spending way too much time watching robots and spewing oil. Yesterday evening was fascinating in an odd way.

My target for the week was 40km - made it with 4 to spare

Took the 35lb MTB instead of the 25lb road bike, felt like I was dragging an anchor behind me, maybe that was the 30km/h winds....

I had a truncated ride today: 13 miles. I'd like to wake up in the early AM and ride, but I've been so exhausted lately I doubt it will happen. Chronic fatigue sucks.
