Great minds and all that.

SO, I had signed up to do the Recovery Ride #1 from Zwift Academy at 6 PM. I arrived home just in time to get set up, if everything went okay. So, of course, today is Zwift Update Day, and it takes me TWENTY MINUTES to get the damn program updated and running, by which time the window has shut. And me, sitting here in bibs and jersey with an HR strap on. So I signed up for 8 PM. I guess I'll ride after dinner.

Had a 24 ounces of pumpkin pie custard milk shake tonight. I think I gained 10 pounds.

Urban Myer as well, but for different bad boy reasons.

NOW he tells me!

Seriously, though - I JUST Zwifted on Friday. And the computer was open most of the time in between. This only happens when I have a very narrow time window, but I swear it ALWAYS happens when i have a very narrow time window.

Negative, Funds come Friday.

Bike shop just called, there was debate about whether or not to wrap the bars, since I plan on switching them. Leaving them unwrapped for now,
Test riding tomorrow.

I hope you love it.

You can ride with unwrapped bars. I did it earlier this year, a little bit.

A real pro tip is: Have your guy update your stuff before you need it.

My previous cat would sometimes eat mice (and the occasional rat) and sometimes not. If it escaped then she'd soon loose interest and I have to set traps for the pest. Other times she'd devour them (except rat tails). There is nothing like waking up to the sound of your cat under your bed, crunching the bones on a rodent. She was a slightly odd cat; If she didn't like her food she would let the neighbour's cat inside; watch it eat and then chase it outside.

My current feline overlord is a large lazy loaf of a cat. I don't think he's caught a rodent in his life.

Tonight...23 miles in the cold and wind. By "cold", I mean in the 50s - in So Cal, that's jacket weather. By "wind", I mean the trees were being violently stripped of their leaves outside. Meanwhile, I had a fan blowing on my sweaty body behind the protection of a closed garage door...which is pretty much the same thing. My Zwift effort was productive for my fitness.

I set everything up. All that should be required is for people to enter their own total. Except thanks to a dumb Strava loophole now someone has to check for fake miles.

You aren't looking very hard.

at least she has her looks to fall back on. I've never made it all the way through that, to painful.

They must be waiting for Velo to wrap the bars.

You aren't getting a new bike?

One of my other friends has been arguing with him on FB. He claims all of the people in "one state" who are hospitalized are vaxxed.

I don''t understand why some people want to believe the conspiracies and reject all other knowledge.

Because it backs up thier world view and proves they are correct.

Yes, she's not hungry. If you stop feeding her she'll remember what comes after the hunt.

got all kitted up and got to the top of my drive way and called it. Roads are soaked my have rained pretty hard, and it was currently misting.

I donít mind riding in rain, it was misting yesterday, however I prefer it if the road started out dry.

Def. want to get miles today so hopefully it lets up later.



edit: not sure how people drive where you guys/gals live but here common sense goes out the window when precipitation is a factor.

Theyíre not strong on basic physics here either and rain just pisses them off.

I did a z2 ride yesterday, wanted to push it a little today, but all of my crashes have been in wet conditions.

I have an independent soft serve shop in my neighborhood and I try to avoid it due to be fattening and being lactose intolerant but I do stop in every Fall for one of those type shakes. I better put that on my to-do list.

We are invited to my nephew's wedding and we got an email update about the wedding and the "after party."

I figured since I am 50+ that the "after party" is something that younger people do after the wedding and the reception?? I think we will skip it because :50: but since when did a wedding after party become a thing??

Speaking of weddings, today is mrs datlas and my 30th anniversary. :bday: for us

We have a wedding in Austin next month. Not sure about the after party, but I am somewhat leery of the whole enterprise, especially getting on an airplane with a bunch of Texans.

need some plumber advice.

My shower drain keeps getting clogged up. Sometimes it works well for a week, and other times we might get one shower use before it stops draining properly. We have a cover over it to prevent hair or other clogging items to get in it.

Any idea what it could be? Iím buying draino once a week.

Trsnrtr 10-12-21 06:07 AM

@datlas Congrats!

bampilot06 10-12-21 06:11 AM

Women hair.

Get a small drain snake and be ready to choke back the vomit when you see what you drag out of it.
