Youtube aerobics video

We went over to Hannibal to visit Steve's daughter and her family. The girls (11 and 9) each had basketball games on two different church leagues. They don't keep score but the kids learn the ins and outs of the game. Both girls have really progressed since last year. It's been fun to watch them grow.

In searching for a Youtube aerobics, I stumbled across a Vietnamese group --- they are kind of new on the scene of online workouts but seem to be getting a following. I tried a couple of their ab-focused workouts and have to say they might have something there. No instructor yakking and wasting time, simple club-type music that's good for working out, and super easy moves.

Zwift -

Rainy day that got increasingly colder. I knocked out another course on Tour of Zwift, I think I now have only 3 rides left to do to complete that. We met some friends for lunch and then ran a bunch of errands.

Notable about today is that we FINALLY cut the cord on Comcast cable TV. Steve has been dragging his feet on this since his Cardinals baseball is the main issue - we would have to subscribe to another streaming app to watch that. Which is fine, really, there are a lot of options. But the latest Comcast bill was the last straw and they don't seem to want to work with their customers anymore.

Rode MTB outdoors

Had lunch at Mom's --- was good to see her and my sister. In the evening, our bike club had a trivia night at a local cafe. I would call it a huge success. The two individuals who put it together did a fantastic job!

Spent the day unpacking and getting organized.
After the race we drove until it started to get dark and stopped for the night in West Memphis. Found a Quality Inn and booked online. Google maps took us to a slummy hotel on the wrong side of the interstate. Confused, we called the Quality Inn and they confirmed that we had the right address and they did have our reservation, no idea why Google directed us to the wrong address. Found the right place (it was really just across the interstate on a frontage road). Had to go back to the front desk three times to have the girl get our room keys to work. The area felt a little sketchy and not very well lit.

It was 8 PM and we hadn't eaten dinner. I also needed a shower pretty badly. Steve went out to try to find something and returned with Wendys. He'd gone to a Walmart thinking we could get stuff to make sandwiches, and said he was about the only person in the whole store, which made for a very eerie experience. Shelves were pretty much empty. That area fared badly in the ice storm and sounds like there are still areas without power. He decided to go to a Wendys and try to get something. Only the manager was there, and he said he had about four items to choose from --- they had no drinks, no salads, no chili. We ended up with chicken sandwiches and soggy fries but sure tasted good.

Got out of the hotel early and drove the last 5 miles home, landed around 2 in the afternoon. Sure felt good to get home.
