Once again, not too much to report. I just sucked down a few Red Stripes. Yummy. It seems like quite a few of you are getting geared up for cross season. Me? My month off the bike is officially over. I will begin riding at least 3 times a week until my official training starts on December 1. The weight training is going OK, but as expected boring. I have lost so much overall strength from the days when I used to weight train for HS football and college rugby. Lifting for cycling is different though - high reps, moderate weight, etc. Feel the burn baby!
We spent the weekend at a very posh Hill Country resort. It was great because the resort had a beach on the lake that Bug loved. They also had an 18 inch deep kiddie pool that he and I splashed around in for hours. Overall, we had fun. There was however an incident that seems to be a recurring thing lately. We were seated for dinner outside on the patio - wife, Bug and me. There was only one other couple out on the patio at that time because it was early. After we were there for 15 minutes or so, the hostess sat a couple at a table beside us. My back was to them, but my wife saw the guy roll his eyes and saw the woman mouth, "I am a kid magnet." I am sick and tired of kid haters who think they have a right to a kid free environment. It is one thing if a kid is being loud and distracting. That pisses me off too. But there seems to be this whole culture of people who can't stand kids, good or bad. I have had it with those people. To them I say get over yourselves and FUCK OFF! If they don't want to be around kids they can stay the fuck home.
I am still researching tubular wheels for a Spring purchase. The American Classics have now taken a back seat to the Easton Tempest II Carbons. My shop handles Easton, so it probably makes more sense. And they look damn cool.
Not much else to say. Oh yeah, DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS!
