Unless you are rehabbing from a leg injury and like to track your progress, I canít see much value from knowing your L/R balance. One of my patients works for Stages and has admitted this when I mentioned it to him.

That's where the beer drinking occurs.

Yeah, not much value in knowing L/R but that shouldn't be conflated with the value of knowing total output vs L x2. Asymmetry often isn't consistent, it can vary at certain output levels or fatigue levels, so I'd much rather have total than L x2.

That's the wonderful thing about fishin' and bowling, too.

She's ready to go. I still need to do a little trailer work though.

I stick to mini-golf.

They offered a golf for beginners type of thing through my law school because allegedly its important for clients. I considered it but a) times they are a'changing and it's not really that important any more; b) for government and/or criminal defense work it's not necessary; c) tbh any potential client I may lose in some sort of hypothetical future private practice probably isn't worth it but I'll probably never know about it anyway; and d) I hate golf. I've played twice and that was 2 times too many.

True. My left is my broken side and I was worried at the start, though it's likely only messed with it by a percentage or so, in the long run.

Did you ever wonder why you don't see more dicks painted on the road for the Tour de France?

I'm basically 12 years old I laughed at that. Looks like a hard job--stiff competition against the clock.

Yeah, obscene graffiti is probably a violation of the penal code. But would the evidence stand up in court?

Probably not, you know the prosecutor is soft on crime.

Yep, not everything has to be done at 1,000 watts and generate buckets of sweat.

You could have gone and watched fireworks over the fake lake this weekend.

Alas.

I fished a few times. It turned into getting hammered the night before so I could sleep whilst wasting my time hoping a fish ran into my hook. Wake up, reel the line in and if a fish were on it, cool. If not, reload, toss the line in, and go back to sleep. Generating watts is more fun.

I fished for a few years when some of my friends fished. It was during my smoking and drinking days and I was never good at it. Two good times come to mind: once 4 of us went out on a day boat from San Pedro, I think. We all caught our limit of bass, Red Snapper, and other edible fish. Got seasick but after a few beers I was fine.

I went creek fishing near the bottom of Mount Whitney in a stocked creek. We camped for a few days and my friend's mother cleaned and cooked all the trout we could catch. The most fun I ever had fishing.

I borrowed some rifles from a guy I worked for and 4 of us drove into the mountains (I was driving and I was so drunk my friends made me stop and we camped in a turn-out). The next day we hiked miles up a creek looking for wild boar. Never saw a boar but on the way back out we shot some trout and cooked them on green sticks over an open fire. We found if we shot next to the fish the concussion would kill it and it would be intact, and delicious.

Man, I've been feeling like a lazy bum in terms of mileage this year, but it looks like I'm about 3 weeks or so ahead of my pace last year (and last year prolly included another few hundred miles of trainer work, which hasn't counted towards my totals this year).
