SS, just how long and how often are you gone on "Long endurance Rides" while your wife is unaccounted for? Does she encourage you to get in "a few more miles" and "Don't miss your training ride today for me! I like the time to myself." You don't want for her to be TOO encouraging of the cycling.

Just sayin' (Unless she really was late for her TT start time. Then you hae the rocking-est wife evah!)

The rocking-est wife EVAH gets to the line on *TIME*, damn it. If she doesn't, she still wins anyway. Because she's fast. Ohhhhh yeah, fast women.


Wait, what were we talking about again?

What a great show. Once the rock starts, I forget that I'm surrounded by kids not much older than my own daughter and enjoy the music.

Most of my training is intensity during race season. Except in the off season and the last couple of weeks. We had a lull in the race schedule so I took a few days off the bike (~5) and then went out for a few long rides. Next week I'm back on the: get up early, train hard, come home, shower, go to work. That way after work I'm all hers.

But ... am I getting where you were going with this. You know, the whole "TOO encouraging of the cycling." You don't suppose she wanted me out of the house for a reason? Milkman? Ups Man? Mailman? Yard Service Guy? Pool guy? Wait... we don't have a pool. But the neighbors do. OH MY GOD!!! She's doing it with the neighbor's pool guy!!!!!

We'll be getting a test this weekend if things don't change. and they haven't.

I'm freaking out but my wife is all, "ah I'm not worried. Everythings ok."

OK?!? What the F woman! We're pushing 40. We'll never have time to ourselves until we're goshdarned 60 years old. Next time quit looking all sexily and pouring booze down my throat. Sheesh.

She totally took advantage of me.

Keep in mind that the chance of multiples increases with advanced maternal age....

1. You used the wrong hole.

2. All racers know you are only allowed to have sex between new years and roubaix. That way if this happens you might be able to still salvage the next season.

3. You used the wrong hole.

4. If it ends up false...call Ripley's...and adjust your saddle. Can't let that kind of crap happen again.

5. If you do end up having another just remember you have a new domestique...
