Road Cycling “It 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.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I HTFU and cut one of the lawns and mulched the final 2/3 of the flower beds anyway.

You might because you live on a farm, but I doubt the others here have an acre+ lawn.

Nastiness, DougRNS I have come close to that more times than I care to count. And, in my esteemed opinion, the only way you could do better than a chiropractor for that neck would be with an osteopath. I realize there are turf wars between the bone specialists and the MDs. The way of the world.

I had an Uncle who was an Osteopath and later became a Radiologist. My Mom had a cousin (my 2nd cousin?) who was a Chiropracticor. MD's are essential and I have no problem with them as long as they take a conservative approach to prescribing drugs and allowing the body to heal itself versus aggressive treatment/surgery. (Think Dr. Datlas)

The Chiropractic approach down here taught at Life University is much different than the twisting and jerking manipulation I had experienced up North. They use a more passive approach by locating out of alignment joints and using a spring loaded device to put it in place. Not very forceful and seems to work. I'm pretty sure I'd never go back to the twist and yank approach.

That's all I am going to say about that to be respectful to all opinions.

You'd never make it at a witch doctors. Giving drugs is all they do.

Why not Lucky Charms, or Fruit Loops? If we're talking nutrition, those would be the exact opposite, I would think.

I raced my first crit in 10.5 months today. I did everything right, but I just don't have a sprint. I guess I need to hang out on Zwift more.

Not.

In this video they brag about having a top 40 nutrition program ranking. I'm not sure how they get it. Coach's poll?

Kudos.

My first tennis match in almost eight months went OK, except I can't run and had no feel for hitting the ball. So I lost to my HS freshman nephew. Sad.

maybe there are only 41 schools that offer nutrition as a degree.

Why do you click on links sent to you? Have you nothing better to do?

Not sad. I wouldn't feel bad about letting a yute win.

There are definitely school rankings by major, and I think several sets. What they're worth is up to you, but they're not completely inaccurate.
