This kid clearly gets what I’m talkin about.
The riding has been very minimal. I have donned far too much clothing and gotten out here and there but this ice storm has me grounded. As previously discussed my motivation to “train” on rollers or a trainer is about non existent. It is “Slim and none, and slim left town”. At least I didn’t leave my bike outside.
This lack of chamois time has forced me to search for inspiration in other places. That should explain the Napoleon Dynamite clips. I’m stir crazy. Clearly I am not getting my fix. THIS article from Slate.com explains that exercise is similar to drugs. So I am not getting my fix and my methadone (rollers) aren’t cutting it. It’s an interesting read even if the rat doing a pull up that they use as a pic is Creepy with a capital C.
I need to be riding where this dude is.
The past few years I have had to go to California this time of year for meetings. Not so this year. Somehow I think my sales meeting in Boston wont provide as many riding opportunities as Cali did. A road trip to warmer weather and long hours in the saddle may be imminent. Any ideas?
