In Tampa area with extremely limited time so no outside-of-family socializing planned.

Beautiful Fall weather here in TX, I'm not even riding with arm warmers everyday. (That's my wife off in the distance)

I figured the banjo music was far enough away that she'd make it home ok.

Gorgeous weather here in Cornvalley, USA. Sunny with mid day temps in the high 50s through Sunday. Looking forward to more great miles. Fall has been awesome so far, but that was after 2 months of 100 degree + temps and no rain this summer. Mother Nature owes us ...

It's the lull before the ice storms and softball size hail. Texas weather is a grifter.

I had planned to do a 2 hr ride but i got drunk and ate excessive amounts of food yesterday instead. We had a company potluck at noon and started drinking then; it pretty much turned into a **** show and now I have to come in to work over the long holiday break because your boy over here didn't do any more work after lunch. The party continued at my parents house with more food, drink and jamming with some (professional) bass player and drummer friend of theirs who came over. so good. we did a killer version of stolen moments.


Then I went out to the bar with a couple friends. lol

today is looking like moar of the same. yay
/trainingfailurestatus

rest weeks ftw!

Also +1 on all the happy thanksgiving comments. Make sure you eat and drink enough to feel disgusting after and super motivated to train. That's the direction that im headed.

Short club ride today. 1 pro showed up and some college women racers from UCLA. Didn't feel up to the longer climbing option, especially after seeing the skinnys who were doing it. I ate a thing called a chocolate cigar at the coffee stop. I think it must have had 700 calories.
