Disappointment
Sunday, April 11, 2010      7 comments

Woke up this morning and I can barely walk. My knee is killing me and the lower back is aching. My hard day yesterday has almost paralyzed me. I think I'm gonna have to skip today's Senior Games. So disappointing. Just another reason to better p... Read more

Today we had the cycling 10K time trial and 20K road race. Now, mind you, it's my first time racing. The advice given to me by CT-Snowbird's Cuchi-Cuchi came in real handy. While I did not medal (4th place in each race), I gained great experienc... Read more

Had a pretty good weekend. Did my time trials while fighting a vicious wind. Was happy with my 5K times but not with the 40K times. Have to take it easy this week in preparation the weekend's Senior Games. Met some fellow racers at the site. Luc... Read more

All is going well. Began my part-time experience working at a bike shop. Quickly realized how much I don't know about the intricacies of selling bike stuff. Will have to listen and ask many questions. HOOAAA!!... Read more

Will be heading for Pflugerville today in preparation for the year's first ride, the Rosedale 100K. I have a certain sense of loyalty for the ride because it was my very first organized ride five years ago. I'll be staying with my son and enjoyi... Read more

This past week was both sad and exhausting, but it finally ended yesterday with the funeral and burial of a super lady. My poor wife barely made it, but I'm so very proud of her. This week, we must get back on the fitness trail so as to make up ... Read more

The bad news was received. MIL passed away on Wednesday very early in the morning. Unfortunately, my wife was flying when the word filtered down. What a downer for her. Luckily our son was with her to try and calm her down a bit. I left Orlando ... Read more

Picked 12 hills and climbed each an average of 3 times. Finished with 40 climbs. What a bear!! I'm so glad I only do that once weekly. Why do they have to hurt so much? I certainly hope that they make me better, handsomer, smarter, and richer. ... Read more

In Spite of not being able to Time Trial, the day was truly a happy one. Took off from biking to see my Cuchi-Cuchi and son compete in a 10K run. The course is really hilly so, they both knew that a challenge lay ahead. As they started, I couldn... Read more

Hill repeats are just not much fun. They just whoop me. But, they're good for you so, I have to keep doing them. 40 hill climbs is a bunch of climbing. My competition is just not gonna know what to do when I fly up those hills. HOOAAA!!... Read more

Yesterday's time trials were great. My times improved by over a total of 3 minutes, but more importantly, I overcame the desire to cut it short. As I finished doing the 5, 10, and 20K trials, I was pretty tired and all set to call it a day. Howe... Read more
