Addiction 2021.1

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

I'm so close to 200# that riding an hour and a half, the sweating takes me down to 198.5#. But that doesn't count.

I took the Circuit for another evening ride. I was fast, for me. Right out of the box I scored a PR on a 5 mile segment I've ridden 298 times, including some heavily wind-aided rides. Strava on the iPhone works pretty well. No cadence or HR, though. I enjoy just riding the Cannondale and the Circuit with nothing on the bars but my hands, just riding by feel.

I also like riding with data. Variety, and all that.

Fixed.

The wind was insane yesterday, with 50mph gusts. Iíve had a hoop-house up every winter for 9 years and this was the first time I had to battle so hard to keep it from being ripped to shreds. An ďall hands on deckĒ kind of evening, except I was the only hands.

My little Sister had a black 6 toe cat named Murky. He was an awesome cat. He used to pick things up in his paw like a human. I think he did it sometimes just because he could. He grab something, pick it up , look at it or sniff it, then set it down. Like, what's the big deal?
Murky was a replacement cat for my sister's Calico (Patches) that ran off when the door was open. She cried for 3 days. So dad relented and said ok you can get a new kitten. The shelter brought Murky out, gave her all the papers. Had my parents sign some stuff. And left.
Later that night there was this Yowling coming from this cat, outside, hanging on the screen to the back door. lol. my dad's face when he saw that Patches had come back was pretty funny.

I was supposed to meet up with the lady who bought me lunch last Saturday and do a club ride with her but a work thing came up and she can't make it. Which means now I have to make a decision. I don't know if anyone I want to ride with will be at the club #1 ride start. They have officially started club sanctioned (whatever that means) rides again and have 6 rides on today's schedule. Attendance won't be back to pre-covid levels but I'm wondering if there will be any difference from the last few times I have gone there.

Yesterday I received a follow-up call from the Doctor's office about my procedure. In the discussion I learned improvement doesn't happen until days 3-5. that means tomorrow morning through Tuesday morning. I was glad to hear that because I felt no better and feel now better now. I was previously told 6 hours to 2 days. SMFH.

I don't like not seeing my cadence, either. If I don't have it, I seem to settle in either too high (>105) or too low (<80). I mean, I don't need to stare at my computer 100% of the time like Froome, but I check occasionally and it serves as a reminder if I should slip in to a bad rhythm without noticing.

Interesting factoid:
My ring tone for my wife has been Cinnamon Girl for as long as I have used ring tones on my cell. Probably since 2005- ish. She's my Cinnamon Girl.

In her honor.:

Not good. I've been the recipient of that before, and it takes no prisoners. I hope Mrs. rjones is OK.
