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!
