I didn't ride today. I haven't done anything today. Mostly been on the couch. Feeling lazy. I can't even type a long sentence.

I wouldn't after 50 miles on Sunday. My legs are still pretty trashed from my 30 - I'm taking it easy this week.

I ride everyday... unless I stay in the house. I NEVER do intervals though.

So I found the magic bullet for WANTING to do intervals.

Flatting halfway into them!

Not only that, but then flatting again after swapping tubes.

Wasn't my night ... flatted after my first set of intervals. Tuesdays I'm always short on time available to ride because I have my 10-year-old son over (I'm divorced, he comes over on Tuesdays for visitation), so after flatting I rushed through putting the new tube in, apparently didn't check to make sure whatever it was that caused the first flat was gone, and halfway into limping back home the tire started going flat again. About 2 miles from home it goes completely flat, and I ended up walking home in cycling shoes.

So in the battle of walking versus doing intervals, I choose doing intervals.

Do you carry a patch kit? Honestly I carry a spare tube but have never really used it as I have always been able to patch the tube and it hasn't taken me significantly longer than simply swapping the tube would.

yup ... patch kit and a tube.

I was up against the clock yesterday, which is really the only reason I didn't try to patch it originally.
