Hit the treddy at the Y over lunch. I know I said I was looking forward to running less after IM but old habits die hard. This felt fantastic!

Dumbell presses, lat pulls, and crunches. Whoah. IM is the anti-beefcake.

Well hello there everybody!

I'm going to the Y at lunch to see what this thing called "lifting weights" is all about.  Chance I'll also get in the pool for a few laps if that looks appealing when I get there.  Tomorrow night will be my first attempt at real cyclocross.  I'm kinda excited!

Also, a new blog for me: Late Aerobic Bloomer

Crank 'n' Crawl! Rode the new cross bike around town for tasty beverages at a few watering holes. Good times.

4:30 cannot come fast enough today.  "Why" you ask?  Funny that you should ask such a great question.  Not funny ha ha, but funny ironic, as ironically, I actually have something to share in response to your one word question.  At 4:30 I am leaving work.  While that is typically enough to make any pencil pusher such as myself excited, as my main man Billy Mays would say, BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!!!  Fortunately, the reason for my excitement is not some craptastic gadget that you will long have forgotten when the last of your four low monthly payments of $19.95 has been charged to your credit card.  That's right.  It's better than that.  I am going to directly to pick up a half barrel at 4:30 p.m., C.S.T.  Then I am going directly to one of the fine bike shops that sponsors our tri club.  I will then be assisting in connecting said half barrel to a CO2 tank and also to a cold plate and tapper.  I will then be drinking from cups filled from the tapper.  Oh yes,  I will drink from the cup.  Why?  Because that's how we roll at post Ironman parties here in Wisconsin.  Yes it is.

Rippin' fast recovery ride! Legs felt a bit dead but not really sore.

  • 15m
  • 800.00 yards

I gotta say, it felt good to be in the water.

Oh yeah, that's the good stuff.

So.  Seeing as Iron distance tri's are off the to do list for the foreseeable future, I am considering selling my tri bike.  2006 Trek Equinox 9.  Ultegra brakes, both derailleurs, chain, and cassette, FSA crank, Shimano R550 wheelset.  Overall good shape but does have some minor dings in the paint from use.  Size is 58 cm.  $1,000 for the bike.  Speedplay pedals and Cateye double wireless computer would be separate.

Don't worry, part of the proceeds would go to buy a set of pursuit bars for the road bike for when I do jump in a tri.  :-)  The rest would go towards a mountain bike.

Also have an aerobar setup I bought used and never got around to putting on the bike.  It's a Profile Design CBX Pro base bar (42 mm) with T2+Cobra S bends.  All carbon, with DA 10 speed shifters and Tektro brake levers.  Brake levers and shifters show some scuffs and signs of wear.  The arm brackets are carbon but have a metal insert which is what the screws go through to bolt to the base bar.  The metal parts are a bit corroded but I think they are fine structurally. $300 for the whole setup.  Not in perfect shape so I'd like this to be a face to face transaction so the buyer can look at it before handing over any money.

Let me know if you are interested.  It will all likely go in the classifieds in the next couple days.

Feeling pretty good today.  Craving greasy food non stop though.  And been giving in to the craving.
