I genuinely don’t think it would be possible for me to have less interest in the Tour than I do this year. I don’t really know why. I tried to force it the other day by reading some tech articles on Cycling News, which usually gets me going, but nope. Just meh. I’m not hugelyContinue reading “Le Tour”
And I haven’t done a single ride. I haven’t really done a run or walk either. Gonna need to remedy this tomorrow.
I love when the Tour hits Mont Ventoux. As long as I can remember it’s just such an iconic stage. I can remember seeing photos of Eddie powering up it when I was a kid, as well as Lance, and Froome and Contador. chapeau to Wout van Aert for his victory today. It’s just aContinue reading “The Beast of Provence -Ventoux”

I spent quite a few years (most of my adult life) not taking care of myself properly. That is not to say I didn’t exercise, actually quite the opposite, I drove myself harder than I should have, much harder. I pushed through numerous injuries, I didn’t listen to physical therapists, I blew off treatment. InContinue reading “2018, not the year I wanted, but the year I deserved…”
I have to say that I feel kinda bad about wearing my “Belgian the fuck up”socks for an indoor ride, but it is winter in Texas, so suck it. I also bought a heater for the pain cave. 🙂 It’s about 37 degrees here, which is cold enough to be legit cold, but not enoughContinue reading “Saturday Night Funtime”
