The current plans are getting my car's oil changed, buying climbing gear, house shopping, and climbing with my boyfriend. Should be a busy but fun weekend

I wish it was warm enough here for me to ride, but I am too much of a pansy to go out in -15 degree weather (much colder with the wind chill)

LOL - never heard that before!


Me.

Friday night - enjoy being home and not having to go anywhere then or the next morning
Saturday - sleep in, ride trainer - go over to Mom's after first stopping off at store and buying the makings for something good to cook Saturday night.
Sunday - Hang with Mom then back home to hit the trainer or do some off roading.


Hmm, I'm boring.

My plan? Getting rid of this cold/flu that I came down with last Monday.
I don't even have the strength to get on the trainer.

The wife and I are going to dinner tonight, while a sitter takes the boys to gymnastics.

I am on the rules committee for our Cub Scout pack. I will be helping out with the races in some capacity all day on Saturday.

Not sure what we are doing Sunday, other than church.

I know that we have to go get crickets to feed the gecko, and I need to clean the garage.

I live life on the edge.

Tomorrow I plan on riding with one of my friends (JayC) – hope to get in at least 50 miles. Tomorrow afternoon/evening, don’t really know, whatever the SU wants to do. Maybe work on the new “old” bike, cleaning some of the existing parts that came off of it.

Sunday I’m going to ride with someone altogether new to me. We seem to have similar training goals (at least on paper) for the year and are going to be doing some of the same rides, so we’re going to meet that morning for a 35-40 mile recovery-type ride. Sunday afternoon/evening will probably about the same as Saturday. Possibly go to the gym in the afternoon.

Finishing up moving the furniture into the new apartment on Saturday.
Sunday, making a run through the old place and packing out the last of the small items so the cleaners can make the place shine for move-out inspection.

Hey KT, I'm bribing people with food to help with the move tomorrow. You in?

Leading my team's training rides this weekend. I'll probably be doing 30 miles tomorrow, 50 on Sunday. Cruise around a little in the new convertible since the rain is finally stopping.

Tonight: Just unwind and hangout with family.
Tomorrow at 8 AM basketball game at the YMCA. I am coaching the fierce 8-9 yr. old celtics as we try and conquer the T-Wolves. Later my son and I will spend some time crafting the super speedy wheels and axles that will adorn our super sexy pine wood derby car. We will spend a few hours on this getting everything just right. Big time pressure this year as we are defending champs and don't know what the hell we are doing.

I doubt i get a ride in tomorrow since our game is so early but hope to sneak one in Sunday early AM. It's so nice now that temps are supposed to be over 20F for the morning rides. That feels warm compared to lately.

Any tips on that? My son and I are doing the same for tomorrow. Tried polishing the axels and smoothing the wheels last night. We'll see if it works or not.
