My Trainer Feed

Noah is sitting in the living room. So far I've re-wrapped the bar tape, adjusted the front der, and added air to the tires.

Realized I need to swap the cages out and put the Eastons on the Helium build. Might as well pull them off now.

Easton cages off. Can't very well do a trainer session without water, gotta pull the carbon cages off my spare TT rig and stick them on the Noah.

Can't. Snowing outside. Got the cages on the Noah and filled a bottle and stuck it on there. Think I'll pop over to the 41 and check the "41" thread for a minute. It's not like I don't have all afternoon to get a little time in.

Same old same old. WR's thread is still going strong though. Pretty amazing.

Phone just rang. Let it buzz several times before answering it. Wrong number. Guy wanted to verify the address which was also wrong.

Need to hydrate a bit before getting on the trainer. Going to make some tea.

How much water did you put in the pot? Metric or English measurement?

Nah. After dinner and wine I'm not doing anything that requires effort or balance.

Posted a bit in the twitter feed. About goat dishes. Water should be boiling in a sec.

Gotta pick out a DVD to watch.

Gotta choose between a GT vid or a Classics vid. Leaning towards the '06 Vuelta with a pre disgraced Vino and Kash working Valverde over with textbook tactics on the climbs.

Decided on the '06 Vuelta. Tea ready. Watching the TTT in Malaga, one of the last cities held by the Moors. Spanish finally took it back in 1492. Not the Phil or Paul would tell you that.

Rebbelin just crashed.

I would have a huge problem arguing with that.

Changed into my bibs. Finished my tea. Out of excuses. 5.5 hours of trainer ducking today. Now we pedal.

Stop. Raised the front wheel block and started ramping up the watts. Realized I have no fan here. Call wife who's out shopping to pick one up.

Back to it at reduced watts.

Done. Puny short effort, but after a week + off sick, better than nothing.

Gotta support feed threads. WR, too bad you can't rename yours to a "feed" as it has the feel of a feed.

I had a camera shoved in the other hole one time. They wanted to see why I kept getting prostate problems. They found the problem. I had a stricture from a long time ago (I think from a fight where I got kicked so hard in the johnson I bled.) When they found it, they forced the camera through to open it up. I almost passed out from the pain. Yay me!.

That would be good. Do you think they'd catch on then? Then density is high.

Yeah, I've been dreading age since I first heard about such procedures. When I was 10, one of my friends went through a procedure, and it's been haunting me ever since. Although we did get good giggles talking about the nurse.
