Skinny Guys Don't Do Cold...

So the ride that I went on with my buddy Scott last Sunday was pretty freakin miserable. The temp was around 32 degrees and I haven't quite figured out exactly how to dress properly. Then again, maybe being a bit cold is unavoidable in weather like that. Anyway... I'm not a big fan of freezing my ass off. Then again... maybe I'm just a freakin candy-ass pansy whiner baby. Yeah... that's probably it. So Scott and I covered 28 miles in about an hour and a half. Though I am bitching about the cold... it was really nice to be out in the fresh air with a good friend shootin the shit and spinning some mileage.

In other news, the LifeCycle Tri-Team is slowly but surely coming together. We've had an initial meeting with the "pilot" group and I'm meeting a couple of members for lunch today to discuss our direction, team race kits, and delegation of certain responsibilities. I've also started a team blog which is set to launch within the next couple of weeks. That could be a really fun thing and a great way to disseminate information! I'd really like to get a few more solid members to round it out to 10.... you'd think that'd be an easy thing. The quandry I'm in is setting selection criteria that is not terribly elitist. There's also been some talk in having both a team and a club... the team being a bit more "hardcore" while the club being a bit more laid-back. I think its a great concept... just need to iron out the details.

Let's seeeee... OH! Coach Matt Lieto sent me a list of questions that will help him plot out my training for the coming year. Apparently I'm going to be put, "on the program". Let it be noted: Matt... I'm not scared of you and all your professional triathlete training mumbo jumbo. (I may change my mind on that ).

Aggie Update: I hate her today. I'm taking her down to Ashland on a business trip and she better behave or else. BOY! And I thought being a parent could make you feel like a failure on a daily basis... add a puppy to that and you might as well buy a timeshare at the "I'm Inadequate" resort and spa!

OK, so I have given in and have bookmarked your damn Blog! You need to get on to Beginnertriathlete.com and Slowtitch.com to start getting some real triathlon knowledge. Triscoop is lame.
Just know......I AM WATCHING YOU. :)

I feel your pain, I went out this morning in shorts and a short sleeve jersey with arm warmers, I had to take the arm warmers off after around 30 minutes;) It's tough to figure out what to wear!

I can be "a freakin candy-ass pansy whiner baby" too. I hate riding a bike when it's cold.

I'm also in the FCAPWB Club. I'm also a very happy breastfed baby.

O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa.

If is possible add the CresceNet(www.provedorcrescenet.com) in your blogroll, I thank. Good bye friend.

this is why it is better for some of us to do our longer races later in the season. If I plan an early HIM or IM that means hours and hours on the trainer. Not really all that fun, but lots of movie time!
