I had planned a 2 hour torture roller ride, but after an hour and fifteen minutes I was trashed.
Ended the month with 525 miles, all on rollers with the exception of 83 road miles. Last day for a road ride was Jan 5.
Last years Jan mileage was 48 miles
But it is 21 degrees, and on it’s way down to low single digits. At least the sun is helping clear the ice off the power lines before the wind comes tomorrow.
Last night there was talk of another big storm next week, but it sound like they are toning it down a bit. We need a break!
I should have come in and gotten a roller ride in, but I’ve been on them every day since last Friday. I’ll make tomorrow a torture day.
So what’s up with letters and numbers on the bottom of Armstrong’s bottom bracket area.
From Lance’s twitter: Had ?’s about fsu2009. Florida state? Someone’s initials? Or something else? It’s personal to me, let’s leave it at that. Thanks!
F*****g SHut Up is my guess
If my memory servers me correct (at my age that is a challenge) I believe the Farmer’s Almanac has had this winter nailed.
We are under a winter storm warning thru tomorrow with a total of 5-9″ of snow from last night thru tomorrow. This morning we woke up to about 1/2 inch. ODOTa nd the city said they were going to have a full crew out working on the roads last night. If that was what the full crew did for 1/2 to 1 inch, I wonder how bad the road will be tomorrow morning. The real storm is not supposed to get here until tonight. It took 45 minutes to drive in to work this morning, normally, it’s 20 min max.
I will continue to look ahead. In six weeks we will be in Vegas, in 14 weeks… Hawaiian cruise!
And I did hear a forecast that was saying we would have nicer, and warmer, next week. I can only hope. We are deserving.
So. more basment time. I’m getting used to it, and I’m pleased with my conditioning and committment. I’m well ahead of last year so no real worries.
We finally got some sun and above freezing temps yesterday, but with the first real melting, the roads were pretty sloppy, so I was back to the basement for a 1 hour roller time trial.
I’ve been pleased with my dedication to the rollers! Last year, my basement training was limited and it sucked, meaning I was not race ready when racing season started. This year I have been dedicated and motivated and I’m pleased with my conditioning.
Today’s forecast is for more sun and warmer temps, but I don’t see myself getting out as I have too much to do. TOmorrow we go back to the cold (and single digit temps) and more snow for next week.
Over the weekend, we will make our reservations for a trip to Vegas! Won’t be soon enough
My credit card balance has already increased, and it’s only their first day
