You're an anomaly lately.
Have 50 miles planned for tomorrow.
Meant to take a short ride today but ended up going 15 miles on some new trails off my usual route. It's like a time warp or something when you follow a new trail and start having fun with it, get sort-of lost and try to find your way back to where ever. I was looking for climbs and did the only two decent ones in my immediate area since I figured I wouldn't be out that long and wanted a decent workout. The weather here in greater-Boston is supposed to be miserable the rest of the week, so I know I won't get out much. Ended up stealing about 1:40 from work and missed the start of a conference call. Ah well.
I am at the point where if a day goes by without riding, it's a bad day.
medals for those who settle to "stay on the porch" instead of "running with the big dogs" And They are the ugliest medals yo ever saw! I dunno!
I should say my mileage goal for the week is 400miles. Being at 273miles now, I'm well on my way.
I'm done with school tomorrow so if you want to ride anytime I'm basically free. But I go out of town the 6th, hope it dries up by then. It should, and I've heard Landahl is in killer shape. Pre-rain, at least.
I'm going to southern MO on the 6th...but Landahl is on my Ta'Do list.
Falling + rocks = mountain biking. Pain only lasts for a short time, right?
Rode a little with some friends today.
Rode the mtb today.
Rode with the wife (who ran) Tuesday. Yesterday and today were/are a bit wet, so just went to the default trail rather than drive somewhere else.
I believe the clouds in my coffee more than the weatherman on t.v.
I sure hope you waved hello to your fellow bikers!
Hugs are the only way to roll, It's the new black.
Rode china camp today. About a straight hour of climbing followed by a 45 min decent.

Rode Annadel State Park with two other friends today. Made a good loop with some good climbs and some good down hill to end the day.
All of my friends were at a soccer game or working, so I went up to one of the easier places on my dad's full rigid Jamis (the Can'o'ale is having some headset issues that need work). All I can say is that not having 5 inches of cush up front is quite hard but quite fun at the same time. Felt faster on the smooth crap, but it was downright painful on the rocky stuff. I ended up riding with some guy I kind of know. Not only is the wrist that always bothers me sore, but my other one is too. Good time, and yet another bike I need to build up (I now need a freeride bike and a SS full rigid, oh, plus a car, and all the money I can find for college, because I have no chance what so ever for any kind of scholarship other than maybe perfect attendance).

Did a "short" ride on the old rigid Raleigh at the Mansion tonight with my almost-6-year-old on the seat on the back. It's a good test of skill with a kid on there b/c log crossings HAVE TO BE smooth , slow, and somewhat trials'y so you don't shake your poor kid to death. That freakin' paved climb in the back hurt like none other with her on there.
I got 3/4 up the hill and started prayin' for inner strength like I nevah had before. I actually made it up there w/o stopping, but the base of my trachea (right in the notch where they put a trach tube) burned like a son-of-a-gun for about an hour afterward. I was having some chest pain too with deep breaths.
I knew I pushed it too hard when I was doing it, but it was the 1st time I'd ridden with my oldest daughter on the seat this year and I didn't wanna gimp out
breezy 97 degrees today, i didn't last long.
