You have what we are getting tonight/tomorrow. Temperature will plunge tonight. High tomorrow in the 30s, with light snow tomorrow morning. It won't stick to paved surfaces in the city because the ground will still be too warm. Monday in the 20s.

I'm not even aware they're on, except for comments here. 18 of the last 20 years without a tv.

After I drive to the recycling place since the trash guys managed to overlook mine yesterday. You had one job. :notamused:

Will you soon begin seeing James Harden at Whole Foods?

Nicest day of the week today and I'm working. Naturally tomorrow is my day off and will be 15į cooler than today :rolleyes:

At least I'm working at the shop I can easily ride to, so I'm really looking forward to the ride home this afternoon.

Good ride. We had a slightly larger than usual group with I think 11 riders. I really wanted to do a longer ride but consensus was for 40, I rode to/from the start for a few bonus miles. All good.

Tomorrow is looking like a Zwift day.

One of today’s riders was talking about his tire lifespan and said he moved the front to back and back to front when the rear was starting to show signs of wear.

I pointed out that conventional wisdom says when rear worn move front to rear and put new tire on front.

He looked at me like I was crazy.

Well, you might be, but that wouldn't be evidence of it.

Heading to the mushroom capital of the world with Mrs datlas this afternoon.

I did the "Half Monty" last night, and got somewhat disappointing results. Two reasons, I think - the last time I did a ramp test on Zwift, I concentrated on chasing down other riders, rather than the discomfort or wondering how long I'd last, or how soon I could stop(which is probably exactly the wrong attitude!), so I need a distraction other than the promise of more pain in the immediate future, as represented by the ramp and the numbers.

The other thing is, I really think I need the kind of warmup time trialists do, where you push hard enough to drive your heart rate up at least to the range you expect to hit. From previous experience, it seems like the first time I build up to 170, if i go there gradually, I feel distinctly unwell, whereas if I've pushed up to that range quickly at least once, I barely notice it. SO, my warmup should include a couple hard efforts to push my HR into the high 160s if not the low 170s while also not burning all my matches.

So, does anyone know how to set up to run Zwift and Systm at the same time? Can they both read power off the trainer, HR and cadence, but without controlling the resistance on the trainer, while Systm reads the same things but also controls the trainer?

Another one of those times when, after you get it, you say "OFFS!!"

The girls had CCD this morning so I didnít get to sneak out before the wind got into the 20s here. Will be a swifter if anything

Had a good brisk with a bunch of guys yesterday, but today I let a mainly different bunch go on the first hill. Itís February for Godís sake!

Work and coffee up til now, chicken and waffles for Linner. Hope to sit outside on the patio in the sunny 65 degree weather. Much to the chagrin of the resident weather grouch. Another celebratory bottle of wine tonight in Roscoe's honor. Maybe spread some mulch if I feel like missing my nap.*

* no way in hell I'm missing my nap.

Must have been from the southern hemisphere.

What happens when the earth collides with a giant asteroid, you're relying on your neighbors to give you advance notice or it'll just be poof, lights out?

Oh wait, but you do keep up with some sports. :foo:​​​​​​​

Isn't it lights out even if you know it's coming?

If it's a giant asteroid I'd rather not know. There is absolutely nothing you can do anyway.

You could hitch a lift with a passing spacecraft.

If you could do that, itíd be all over anyway.

2.5 hour nap achieved. SMH.

I go to neurologist on Wednesday, hopefully I will begin my road to recovery. I am letting my pain med rx lapse. I think it is doing more harm than good. I'm tired of being a zombie.
