Addiction 2021.4

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Excited to see some snowfall tomorrow, especially because I don't have to drive.

For me it was:
Moderna I - absolutely nothing.
Moderna II - a 6 hour nap required.
Moderna III - only a 2 hour nap required.

Bite your tongue! I am hoping the snow does not materialize so we can do our weekly mid-week ride.

Yeah. We are not expecting a real snow. Maybe a coating on grassy surfaces. By Saturday it's supposed to get to 70 degrees. Just in time for my company's holiday party at some some farm.

I have a 3 hour design meeting with my department today and have no idea how I am going to make it through.
I'm off for my booster in a half hour. Neither of the first two hit me very hard and I'm still hoping to get in a trainer ride later, so that means #3 will prolly put me on my ass.

It must be the holiday season. We already have a big box of "Hope's Cookies" and Lindt chocolates in our lunchroom.

So, heart rate question. I did a zwift ride yesterday and hadn't taken my cholesterol/ BP meds, I forgot the day before. I was able to attain a much higher heart rate than normal. I hit 172 for a high and spent a lot of time in the 160s. Normally I see 155ish as a high. The weird thing was, I was holding say 165bpm, I would then push a little harder, like to catch a wheel, my heart rate would actually drop a couple bpm? I felt great, no pain, other than exertion.

I know people that make snow for the local slopes. Sadly, the equipment isn't portable.

Yeah, that's bad. Someone screwed up and it needs to be pointed out at high volume.

I like riding gators. Mine are on a steel bike. True they're not as cushy as some, but not as bad as they're made out to be.
Edit: Simply put, I like riding. I don't need the fancy schmancy.

It's not the cholesterol thing. What BP meds are you on?

Feel better. My first two were bad.

Yeah it's likely the BP medicine but we need to know what it is.
