I am not good at it and really hate climbing sometimes, but I always love the feeling of cresting a hill.

Plus the prettiest roads tend to be in the mountains.

Just had a scarry moment with the axs bike. Walked through the room and blipped a shifter and got no reaction. Stopped, went back and did it again....nothing hit the other one. Flashing light. No light on the right shifter. The coin cell is kaput. Swapped it out and everything is functional again. 10 coin cells on the way. Thanks Amazon.

"New" phone arrived. Strava installed. Maybe I'll take more ride pictures now.

Kept man status looking better and better?

Mrs datlas is retired. She takes two painting classes, a Spanish class, and generally seems quite happy with the situation.

Damn! I keep forgetting to change mine.

That reminds me - Tall Ships is back on the year, but they're moving up the coast shore from Duluth. Need to check with the wife and see if we've booked that yet.

There's some action on the Two Harbors webcam right now!!!

Oooh, I love the compass rose they've superimposed on the video.

Two Harbors is where they're holding Tall Ships, this time around.

The problem is, if they sever me, they owe me 8 months and counting of pay. I'm not retiring; I'm going to hang around until they try to make me move. I want that severance.

However, I do not really fear the notion of getting let go anymore. And frankly if I did, I'd probably rest a bit, get my lifeguard cert as a light-duty bit of spending money backup, and then look for online work as a QA consultant or similar. Something I can still take care of the house with. AG missed that when I was in CO last time.

Yup. Tuesdays and Fridays. I believe one is figure painting (with a model) and one is landscape/still life. Both are oil painting. I have posted her paintings, she is talented IMO.

Well, yeah. Tri geek at heart still.

Oh and that last trip to CO also revealed how much I really benefit from having a trainer session to warm up with. The low-impact movement helps not just my hip but knees and ankles and all that haven't been asked to run much in a while. Long build-up back to marathon status.

She should paint a bicycle for your office.

You've won. Congratulations. Take yourselves out to dinner to celebrate the new you.

Speaking of bike pictures, my winter project finally made it outside. Rides great, but need to dial the fit a little.

very hot. Bonus points for horizontal top tube. What size?

DougRNS 04-06-22 05:19 PM

I have rider assisted shifting. No batteries required. Maybe someday I'll ride again.

I flick my shifters at least once a day. I donít think I have flicked them once since I got sick.

That would not surprise me if they died during this time.

abshipp 04-06-22 05:43 PM

Does ibuprofen ease muscle fatigue?

I took 400mg before my ride since my wrist has been hurting a bit lately.

Wrist didn't hurt as much as last time I rode and I also felt really great on the bike.
