The MD state COVID site was hacked, so no data. What a ****ed up world.

Just got the merch catalog for Newport-Bermuda 2022 in a race update email and was slightly tempted to order a nice sweatshirt, but with the continuing COVID ****storm I’m worried they’ll cancel again.

Viruses are ruining everything. Sad!

Something happened today that may or may not be germane to the topic. My wife was ahead of me (naturally) on a tailwind today, doing >20 mph when two dogs came out of a field and shot passed me and chased my wife. She finally out ran them and I was immensely amused at the spectacle. This pair was fast. Not normal dog fast but greyhound fast. She was doing 25+ when they finally tuckered out and quit but damn! They were two smugly proud pooches. We were still laughing about it last night. I've witnessed a zillion dog chases over the last 40 years but this one was great.

My wife asked if I thought they would have bit her. I doubt it, maybe just a nip or two. :)

listen, you don't have to make things up. It's OK if you like the Flintstones. We (with some exceptions) don't judge.

Itís basically an animated version of The Honeymooners. It aired at 7 pm, IIRC, which was prime time back in the Stone Age.

The eternal question it spawned: Betty or Wilma? Iím a Betty guy.

I'm getting antsy to travel, but the wife wants to wait until the girl is a year or two older. While I'd like to visit Ireland, I'm actually more interested to visit Scandinavia, which the wife and boy (who's been taking Swedish lessons for a few years) would be thrilled with, too.

I have two family members that are big into genealogy and weíve found out a lot over the past few years. Iím the great x13 grandson of Henry VII on my maternal grandfatherís side. Our ancenstors played a big part I starting King Phillipís war in the colonies in the 1600s. They moved to Canada during the revolution and lost everything.

on my paternal grandmotherís side Iím a descendant of a tea party participant (canít remember who) who subsequently fought in the revolution.

The rest of me is Hungarian, Austrian and German. My great grandfather snuck out of Hungary during WWI and emigrated here. His first wife and two kids were to come later, but were involved in a ship capsizing so stayed in Hungary. My dadís cousin has of yet been unable to track them down.

Possibly.

Down to 159. 4 pounds to go for my goal.


Raised my EFTP to 235 according to intervals this morning. I still think itís higher but iíll take 235.

indyfabz 12-15-21 08:30 AM

So this morning I am locked out of pages 392-394, but not 395. I am the victim of a conspiracy.

In other news...

I have some issues, but I'm not afflicted by the craziness virus that has swept over the land.

Damn man. I canít imagine being under 160. My thyroid med dosage appears to be ****ed because Iíve put on 10 lbs in the past two weeks.

It can only estimate based on what you show it. If you want a better idea of where the edge is, you need to really push to that edge. Intervals uses efforts of 3 min or longer, so I find it helpful to have a lap screen with timer and average lap power. Set up a screen like that and bury yourself (but don't peter out before 3min).

One challenge that you may have is that, although it's very flat in W'burg, there's lots of undulations and it may be tough to stay on top of the pedals when you crest a gentle roll and come down.

KOM opportunity alert


LAJ 12-15-21 08:56 AM

Steady 30-50 mph winds, gusts to 60-75. Hope the stuff in the yard survives.

Thats what I was focusing on today, as far as the rolling terrain. Whenever I had a descent, no matter the size I made sure to keep the pressure on the pedals.

Iíll never understand how my unit when I stop will show an average speed of 20.3 and average power of 236 but when it transfers to strava it subtracts.

For once I want to see it add. Is that too much too ask?

The second I stop riding the weight starts coming back pretty quickly.
