Working half a day and then packing for an overnight trip to Sumner, Missouri, for the Wild Goose Gravel Grinder. It's about a 3 hour drive, just long enough to merit spending the night. We haven't done this ride and thus are really looking forward to seeing some new roads and towns.

rode MTB over to the lake trails, which were in great shape in spite of the recent rains. Came to the conclusion that my mtb, a Specialized Fuse, needs to lose some weight. Rode to Wheelfast afterwards and talked to Jeremy about a wheel upgrade.

Shaun T - Focus 25 - Beta Phase - Cardio Core
Did ok with this one, used the modifiers at times. Felt almost bored with it though.

Another busy day ahead of me with a proposal deadline. The manager I'm working with on this one is one of those nervous, chronically stressed out types and I find myself being very careful with my tone of voice when talking to him. It's going ok but i hope this guy finds ways to unwind and destress. I've been getting emails with crazy time stamps (like 2 a.m., etc.).

Going to skip the last couple days of Focus Alpha Phase and start the Beta Phase --- I think this new phase incorporates some weights.

Brunch at my mom's and then we have dinner tonight with some snowbird friends who are headed for Florida later this week.

Shaun T Focus 25 - Alpha - Total Body

Busy day at work ahead of me, and it's turned cold, dark and rainy so any workouts will need to be indoors. This weather makes me want to just curl up with a blanket and nap all day.

Feeling a little stiff and sore this morning, especially my hip flexors. It was really windy (20 mph out of the south) and the ride on Saturday, so maybe that, coupled with spending 4 hours riding in the car, are the culprit
Today I'm pulling up all my annual flowers and then working on an exhibit for a project at work.

Illinois Kanza -- 4th time here but this year I chose to ride the shorter distance (non competitive). Rode with Lisa and a handful of friends. When the course split, the 46 mile group headed east and Lisa and I headed back to town and were pretty much alone.
No water in the creek this year, it was nice not to have wet feet.
There was soup and chili in the church basement afterwards. Really nice day.
