I can't trill my tongue.

I was on that diet when I rode three centuries a month. As a side effect, you will drop those last ten pounds without any difficulty.


so this means no more ice cream?

Next thing you know, they'll be saying that donuts aren't a healthy choice, either.

Kids and I got out for a little ride/walk this morning. The boy waxed poetic about nature and the girl commented, "this is a really great forest!" They prolly need to get out more often.

Thatís my preference. Iíve pretty much done away with the big breakfast. If Iíve had a proper dinner the night before I just donít need one. Coffee and something like fig bars or a bagel and Iím good. Love picking up a sandwich and chips during the dayís ride and stopping somewhere pretty for lunch. Loved that in Spain. Iíd often get jamon, goat cheese and bread at a local market then pedal to a nice spot and make a bocadilla.

Nice gift, eh? A friend bought another tandem, and figured he didnít need 6 tandems.

Cheesecake is the only viable choice. Eat enough of it and you will literally disappear.

Got done with a 37 miler today with my wife and noticed while loading our bikes up in the van that my front tire had an orange spot in the tread. I had a puncture and wasn’t even aware of it and tire still feels pretty firm. It must have sealed pretty fast. :thumb:

Possibly. He is the most talented musician in this yearís graduating senior class. Daughter #1 could rival him though.

I wonder if Spike Jones did that whilst playing Flight of the Bumblebee on a trombone.

Wipe down the front. Orange Seal can stain. Ask me how I know.

Ew. I've had it become a bear to remove, if it sits for a couple weeks, but haven't experienced staining.

Quoting only to get your attention. My doctor is a bigger fan of diclofenoc than I am. She has prescribed (today) 100 mg every 12 hours, for ten days, plus 1.16% diclofenoc gel once daily on the affected finger. Personally, I would rather not do any of it. Do you have an educated opinion to offer?
TIA
Could I put the hand in a warm water bath and get the same effect?

I couldn't give up the fruit

bampilot06 06-15-20 03:54 PM

Had my best feeling ride ever today. Temperature was perfect, roads were relatively empty and I felt well rested. I also utilized the drops for almost all of the ride. I usually only use them on hills.
I changed my position while iím on the drops, and it instantly became more comfortable, and felt more natural.
Iím still learning the zones but I would imagine I was mostly in zone 2. I kept it on the large chain ring and my cadence was 85 to 90 where Iím usually at 95 to 105. Heart rate was up, and where I usually dial it back after a sprint I focused on keeping the pace up.
I wish I could have kept going, but I ran out of time.

Tough to say, but I donít think itís harmful to skip the Diclofenac if thatís your preference.

I just bought my first tubulars last evening. I won't have them in hand until September at the earliest. Nor will I have the hubs to build the wheels.That will give me the time I need, to contemplate putting sealer in them, or not. What would you advise? I'm leaning toward not putting sealer in. Or maybe just the rear. I'm also leaning heavily in favor of glue, over tape. For the same reason I'm leaning away from sealer.
I'm excited at the prospect of finally making the leap.

Very different effect, almost the opposite, since both inflammation, which diclofenac suppresses, and heat both increase blood flow.

I'm with @datlas as always. Your doc might know something I don't—I'm wrong all the time, but treatment of a healing traumatic injury is an idiosyncratic use of that drug for sure. The available evidence suggests that the inflammatory component of the soft tissue and bone healing processes is probably beneficial and NSAIDs are generally considered a risk for healing.

Exactly the definitive advice I was looking for. What are your thoughts on the side effects?

I haven't been able to roll an R in Spanish or Italian, nor even understand how horribly American my Rs sound in German.
