TQ's big thread of the day

Love me some progress

*May 2005 avg speed: 14.52mph 180lbs
April 2006 avg speed: 15.75mph 195lbs (oopsie daisy)
April 2007 avg speed: 15.71mph 180lbs
April 2008 avg speed: 16.53mph 170lbs (already 50 more miles than last April)
(each month has more miles than the previous years)

I'm not going stop riding this winter. On that note, 43 degrees is a lot colder at 20mph. I just got done with a 30 miler. The shorts and short sleeves weren't what were screaming for me to quit. It wasn't my massive guads or my sore back. My damn toes are numb (now at least). Yikes...i'm shivering. Warm shower time...yes.

Lastly, is this the manifestation of senioritis, or is this me merely coping with it:

Get out of bed at 9:10-->eat at 9:15-->make it to 9:30 class at 9:29
Browse BF.net for two classes
Tee off at 12:36, right on schedule
Get on bike at 5:40pm
Make this post at 7:07
Friend wants me to go play b-ball...i think i'm going to take him up on it.

That paper can wait until tomorrow night i guess...


PS
If a post in foo is on topic, does that make it foo-off topic? Whatever, the road forum is annoying me.

Nice. Moving right up there. I think I went from about a 15mph average to a 17mph to a 20mph back to a 15mph since I haven't been riding nearly enough.

Tim, I understand your senioritis. I turned in the last paper I have to write before graduation last Thursday. I have two finals next week, both of which I only need to get about a 20% to get an A in the class. I have completely checked out for the semester.

If only I didn't have to student-teach in the fall.
