Well, I was supposed to have hung up the bike for the season as I normally take November and December off, but it's going to be 65 degrees in Minneapolis today and I think that's just going to prove too tempting! So I'm sure I'll get out on the ... Read more

Little Sore Today
Saturday, November 06, 2010      2 comments

Yesterday my "gym season" began in earnest, although I'm just doing a basic full-body workout to wake my muscles back up again. I feel pretty good and not as sore as I expected, but the pecs are hurting because I pushed them probably more than a... Read more

Well, today looks to be a little warmer, in the 50s, so I think I'll try to knock off half the miles I have left to reach my goal for the year. Yesterday I rode myself to within exactly 60 miles of 2708 (the amount of miles for this year that wi... Read more
Chilly Commute on the Bicycle Today--Again!
Tuesday, November 02, 2010      1 comments

Wow, 30 degrees on a bicycle feels awfully chilly this time of year. Coming out of the winter it doesn't feel so bad but going into the winter I kept thinking to myself, "What are you thinking, bro!" I may commute one or two more days but this w... Read more

Well it's cold--about 35 degrees this morning--and the wind is still blowing--about a 20 mph WNW wind--but it's not raining and so I'm on the road again. I'll probably only get 15-20 miles in today but I'm so thankful for that and hoping that I ... Read more
