Catching up

Life's been pretty busy lately so blog entries have been pretty much null.

One thing that I have come to realize it that I sometime wish I could've found a garage and added heating, water, and electric to it instead of buying a house last year.

I truly miss being able to go out and tinker around on stuff in a garage. There, messes are expected and accepted, as well as in a house, you just can't leave things apart of laying around.

Some projects take time, so you have to leave them apart for days on end, or some projects like working on a car, simply can't been done in a house. Again, something need to remain apart for days on end, so that is something that can't be done on the street.

Anyway, that's my little rant about that.

I got to ride for the first time yesterday in about 8 or 9 days. It was pretty nice too. I was feeling it from about the first pedal stroke onward, but in the end I had a little energy left and I actually believe that I mounted a formal challenge to Jared on a few hill sections. Albeit for only about a 1/2 ml total, and I was completely wasted after that. LOL

It's nice to see a chink in someone's armor, even though you can't really challenge them on their level. It's that one little ray of hope for some future rides.

One thing is for sure, Jared knows how to keep me working by putting my as lead and staying on my wheel. It inherently makes me push myself and maybe if I continue, I'll not only be "quick" at times, but increase that to fast all the time.

Anyone checking out the exercise blogs sees what a failure that has been over the last 2 months! LOL With riding season in, I just can't bring myself to going to a gym, although I need it to work out. I haven't run in forever nor hit the weights, neither type of exercise which I get from cycling.
