Stupid legs. Did a three-mile run for recovery this morning. Instead of feeling like doo-doo like my last run, they felt great and I wanted to keep going. My legs are as dumb as a box o' rocks.

I need to stop doing drive-bys and post more often again.

I didn't make it to 1000 TSS that week. The goal was 890; I cut back Sunday's ride by an hour and ended up at 907. Still a pretty big...

Did my first 300+ TSS ride in a while, solo on a windy day. Just under five hours, something silly like 3.2k calories. Pie time!

I've got some Challenge latex tubes in another bike but haven't changed tires on it yet to see if they have the same issue. If not, I'll switch brands; if they do, I'll go back to the thin butyls...

I work in a Specialized shop and we've sold a few '19 Venges. The consensus is that they're notably faster than the Tarmacs. I haven't ridden either, just reporting what the riders said.
