Yup, I finally got back on a bike today. I was on the trainer for about 30 minutes. I need to rebreak in my butt, so I only rode a short time. Legs were super heavy for the first 10 minutes, but much better after that. In fact, much better the rest of the day.

Tomorrow is Advanced Accident Scene Management class in Fond du Lac. I haven't decided yet if I'm getting up early to ride some before I leave.

Catching Up

213 pounds....

Man, I didn't think it was THAT much. Food is evil. =)

I missed signing up for the Horribly Hilly Hundreds by about 10 minutes. I was late coming home last Thursday and didn't get logged on to register until about 20 minutes in to the process. Well, I was too late by then. 1000 spots filled up in under 20 minutes. Whoa! They do have 300 spots that will be done in a lottery. I have signed up for that. Wish me luck.

I have signed up again this year for 6 weeks of 2 hour spin classes with Sheryl. This is gonna hurt. Hopefully I can get some bike time between now and then. The first class is February 1st.

The Lab move at work has been postponed until the first week of February. Seems the new area wasn't quite ready for us.

Tucson here I come. I'll be there the second week of February for training. Should be nice and warm, hopefully.

Frakin' Thursday

Man, some higher ups at work just don't really know how to plan things. Everybody is supposed to be able to pull resources and funds out of thin air. When will they ever learn?

Was busy early today by snow blowing the drive at 4:30am.

Work was work. Way too much happening for the amount of time and effort that I have for it.

I really need to get on a bike and ride some. Sheryl is back at doing her 2 hour spin classes starting up in February. Woohoo. I always love those classes. They will be at the YMCA in Waukesha again this year.

Dropped off more stuff at the bike shop for the swap meet. While there I realized I left a few items in the basement. They are now sitting out so that I can drop them off tomorrow after work.

Caught up on a couple of more episodes of LOST. We hopefully will be kinda caught up by the time they start showing them again.

Wednesday Schmednesday

My Gawd, how many days in a row has he posted asked the masses? I guess I feel the need to blog. =)

The pressure cooker called work is turning it up a notch. Sometimes it feels like I'm the only one planning for the lab move. Hopefully I'm not.

Snow has visited us again. I'll be up early tomorrow to work the new snow blower that I bought earlier this year. A snow blower you ask, yup, I'm trying to optimize my time and that was one way of doing it.

Barb made it back from up north and both of the girls lived to tell about it.

I need to drop off more things for this weekend's bike swap meet at Cyclesmith. Hopefully I'll make a few dollars to put towards the new bikes for 2009.

Tuesday, Tuesday

Well, flying will be for me. I pretty much have come to the conclusion that attempting to ride a motorcycle out of Wisconsin in February is pretty tough.

Next week's training has been changed some too. Only 2 days of training next week.

Barb's up north for Danny's Funeral. Hopefully things will go well up there.

Sleepy Monday

I have to get to bed earlier. I keep staying up till the wee hours and then getting up at the crack of dawn. Makes for a sleepy day.

Monday was Monday. Work was Work. Too many projects with not enough time. And the time is slipping away. Next week is a full week of Crystal Reports training so the projects don't get worked on. The week after that is the lab moving into their new digs. It is going to be somewhat ugly because the static IP addresses will be changing. yuck.....

Then there is the decision about riding the Buell to Arizona. I'm getting the feeling that I will be flying. Bummer.....

Super Slow Sunday

I didn't do much today but catch up on the Dexter episodes and get some bike things together for the upcoming swap meet. The guys from Cyclesmith will be taking my stuff over to sell at their table. They realize that if they sell my stuff, they'll get the money back in sales when the Fargo gets bought.

Otherwise the driveway was still super icy today and Worf was NOT liking it. He had a heck of a time standing up on it.

I have to decide about riding the Buell to Arizona. Otherwise I will need to pull the trigger on ordering airline tickets.

Sad Saturday

I just got back in from walking the dogs. My driveway is now one big sheet of black ice. Yuck.

We got word this afternoon that Barb lost one of her uncles to a snowmobile accident. His name was Danny Kolnik. He was an old school stock car racer from way back. There were times that I didn't like him during those long lost years, but over the past couple of years, he and I got along well during family get togethers. Last summer when I was up at his house, I knew I liked him for a reason, that reason was a bicycle sitting in his garage. He said he even rode it every so often. He will be missed. Our thoughts go out to his family. I'm not sure if I'll be up for the funeral or not, but I know Barb will. Hey Danny, say hello to Dick Bishop and Tim Lorenz for me. Because I have a feeling you guys all ended up in the same place.

Hey, do you want to buy a 2007 Specialized Epic SWorks? If so, let me know.

I got out on the Buell today. I bundled up about 4 layers thick, but it was fun non the less. I ran some errands on it. I did see one other rider out today, so that was kinda cool.

The girls are now back from being up north for the week. The dogs got haircuts and bathes today. And the first day of Dakar happened today. Now I just need to get more work done on getting the bikes set up in the basement.

Wish me luck......

Friday thoughts

So, it is 1/2/09 and I still haven't gotten the bike on the trainer yet. I guess there must be an issue with my desire to get moving. Hopefully I can work on this some this weekend.

If the weather is nice tomorrow, the Buell is going out for a spin.

Happy New Year

Hey, it's another new year. Hope it is going well so far by you. It is for me. I was out running the Buell so that the battery doesn't go dead. I also added some Stabil to the gas so it doesn't get all gunked up.

Now the big question is whether or not to even attempt riding it to Tuscon in February for Sunquest Training. hhmm.....
