Here's the Funny Part...

I had an 1:45 ride scheduled for yesterday. Due to other commitments... I couldn't head out on the road and had to slap the bike on the trainer for the workout. This is good and bad. Good b/c the workout I was doing had very specific intervals and wattages to hit and that's a LOT more easy to do on the trainer. Bad b/c well... it's the trainer... AND it was a beautiful sunny day! ARG. Oh well right? I set up the trainer on the back deck thinking that I could still be out in the sun and train in the heat. In addition to sweating my arse off... about halfway into the workout it occurs to me, "Hey bonehead! You didn't put on any sunscreen!" Unlike the Bigun, us Oregon folks are pasty white at this point in the year! Not good. My wife snuck out and took a couple of candid pics of the "Emaciated White Ghost" or EWG... rarely photographed in the wild let alone in the near buff. Later that night, while getting ready for bed, I happened to glance at my back in the mirror... nice tan line. I had the wife-a-roony take a picture for your entertainment. Good times!

On tap for today? Trampoline assembly AND a 1:10 run. I'm going to preview the Eugene 1/2 Marathon course with my buddy Scott. First half of the run... Zone 1-2... second half Zones 3-4. Ought to hurt a bit which is not a bad thing. I'll be curious to see how things go considering I haven't been terribly healthy over the last week... what with the peeing blood stuff... Bah Ha HA! By the way, I feel fine. A little low energy but other than that I've been pretty good. Not that I'm ignoring anything... I'm still getting scanned and poked and prodded next week... but I figure if I feel like doing some training... I might as well!

I think I'm gonna have me some noodoo's an pok tonigh. Rong tine.

Breathe...

Perhaps some feminine-hygene products could help you with that bleeding issue.

That was bad.

Hope your less red today!

It does look like a bra line! Or a two piece swimsuit tan line. Nice.
