Sprinting through last week

Wow, so it has been awhile since I was able to sit down and share some of my thoughts of the whats happenings in the chaotic life of Twan. The last couple of weeks haven't been the smoothest which has lead to the silence.

I was still suffering from a lack of motivation to ride. This has become quite normal unfortunately when I do not have a goal in mind. This changed with a simple email from the Masta of Spin. He too was searching for the kick in the butt to get back out there and wanted to know if I would be interested in punishing my lungs and legs while doing an offroad hill climb race. A couple of back and forth jabs and we are both looking forward to partaking in the event. Once registration opens up I will be able to officially confirm my attendance but until then I will deny everything as usual.

Monday, I cruised home from work on Le Antique and Tuesday brought some fun out at Westcreek while Jenn was lumping together 3 different workouts with the Endorphin crew. I decided to start training with some intervals, mainly hill sprints. I made up my mind I wasn't going to stop riding until Jenn was done. Usually I stop about 15 minutes prior so I can load up the car to ensure a prompt departure and on time arrival to the local Chick-fil-a. My legs were upset at me for that effort for 3 days as I totaled, 30 miles worth of hill sprints and 6 "cool down" miles.

The list of electronics of mine which have broken/stopped working has continued to grew. First, my computer/heart rate monitor decided it no longer wanted to turn on. I thought it might have been throwing a hissy fit and refusing to turn on until my legs decided they were going to put out some power again but alas, no. I still get nothing. Then last night, I got out of my car and went to slide my embelical cord to the world into my pocket and it took a 34" fall straight to the ground. The touchscreen has a nice floral display made of cracks in it now.

This week is going to be full of riding and good eating. I have had a couple of ideas to try my hand at making my own bbq sauce and attempting a new technique of grilling or two. But not at the same time.
