At this point in the year, I just want to keep sensibly upping my TSS as schedule and family allows. The ride today gave me what I wanted for the week and I'm okay with a flatlander, who also has the most time in the saddle this week (*ahem*), taking the top spot on the podium. :D

I was a dish washer, and cook. Through most of high school.

this will prolly be my last week of anything considerable mileage. Leave for Dallas on Tuesday, Iím still not sure I can bring the ritchey with me.

Once I finish training, I think itís right to the Line. My bike riding will most likely be extremely limited the rest of the year.

Gonna Strava the hotel exercise bike rides?

Do you have an inkling of what your schedule is going to look like once things settle down? Maybe you should have picked up a Suito with the handy folding legs and handle - it'd make a nice travel trainer.

Rode down to the little store outside the park entrance along the Harlem Valley Trail and happened to meet one of the co-authors of ďYounger Next Year.Ē The lay one, not the doctor. Heís 87 and still riding.

If I do anything worth recording I will throw it on strava. I usually donít last to long on hotel bikes.

Really depends on what I get and how quickly I can get off reserve. I imagine training will take about 2 months to finish. So probably, around Feb, I will have some normalcy again. Really hoping I can get DCA as a base by March or so. That would really help.

Kitty is resting on her throne while I watch Indy cars at Laguna seca.

It was beautiful out here, too, if a tad windy. But I cut my ride short because as it happens, somebody turns 12 today!

So I'll take him for a walk in the park where we used to walk all the time but really haven't much since COVID.

I still think there should be an age handicap system.

I vote for miles to be multiplied by tyre width in inches :)

Multiply miles by 1.xx with xx being your age.

Maybe add .1 to the multiplier for every year over 50

Youngins don't need a multiplier :)

LAJ 09-19-21 04:17 PM

Course, we're talking multipliers, then we need to look at just plain altitude too... I have the age thing, the elevation thing, and the altitude. I sometime ride some miles, here and there.

Thinner air means you can go farther and faster. Youíll have to give up miles.

I was a dishwasher at a hospital through part of high school. I think it was $1.94 per hour. Soon after I graduated the 1971 earthquake happened and the hospital was closed. I got a job at a factory,I told them I was 18 but I was 16. It was a toxic hell-hole but I stayed for most of a year. When the hospital reopened I went back as a pot washer, a prestige position with hidden benefits and $2.25 per hour! I got fat there in less than a year.
