Ambitious. I usually only mow one per day.

The other day, for the first time in...oh, at least 8 years, I made myself a martini. 8/10, would recommend.

So obtuse. Maybe. My point is when I made that post LAJ was not on the podium.

I want to take the girldogs for a walk. But yesterday it was so hot that Puppy Love laid down on the sidewalk and refused to walk any more. I had to pick her up and carry her a bit. Until she saw a squirrel of course. Then she came back to life PDQ.

Today=still hot

That’s what I am thinking. I rode very little when the kids were small. Once they were more interested in doing things with their friends and became more independent, I was able to ride more. I expect that’s typical.

fify :p

I worry about the kids driving my wife batty more than anything else - the kids aren't seeing a shortage of dad time right about now.

Looks like AG and I will actually go for some real miles tomorrow.

Just a couple of acres. NBD.

Apologies. I don't mean to be an *******, it just comes second nature, I guess.

LAJ 04-25-20 06:23 PM

Getting my CTL up to 100. For an old fart, that's pretty big. Yuge?

Nice photos guys

53 miles today, legs are fried. Man I'm out shape.

So my Wahoo and Kinetic trainer arent comunicating properly. If I use the programed training rides. I get a lot of "ride paused" and when I upload it converts my miles into hundreds of miles and hundreds of miles per hour.
https://cimg1.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...212d6b7e8b.jpg

2 emails to Wahoo, only to have them blame it on the Kinetic trainer. The only time it does this stuff is when I run the preloaded programs. Jra trainer rides are flawless. Outdoors rides are flawless.
The "ride paused" thing sucks because it forces my to basically stare at the damn readout the entire rode so I can catch it and restart my ride. Pain in the ass Technology.....

If anyone has any ideas where I should look to fix this garbage I'm all ears.

LAJ 04-25-20 06:25 PM

We have a golden raspberry bush, and it doubles my back lawn mowing time. When I get near them with the mower, and it's pickin' time, I shut er down, and graze. If the rotten raccoons don't get the grapes, I do the same with them.

I would be pretty thrilled to be that speedy.

I think I've never gotten mine above 93, so yeah.

The thing to remember is that training load, based on TSS, only charts your progress - you can start with low FTP, rack up TSS to get your CTL higher, but have a lower FTP than someone who's been going at it longer or just has better genes. And in tri-world the formula for rTSS is bad and sTSS is laughable. I have no idea how to set my zones for that, and for swimming specifically I haven't touched them in years.

Absolutely. I wish I could say my FTP goes higher every year, but it just creeps up a bit every year. I'll take it, because it's better than dropping. The weights aren't figured in either, and I have no idea there.

I'll grab an apple, during last-season lawn mowing. But I can eat and cut at the same time. :)

Tonight's drink, gin and tonic. Stirred, not shaken. With ice.

I bearish on raspberries.

I love them too. We had a few bushes at our previous house and once, while eating them right off the cane, I chomped on a Japanese beetle. The bitterness was indescribable, at the level of pain.

We used to have martinis every Friday evening and got really picky about the gin and vermouth. They were very good, but I can’t tolerate that much alcohol anymore and LSS shouldn’t.

That would be a lot of work without a tractor.
