Kamikaze

June 17, 2008

Seriously, I simply do not have much to report on the training front. But I will say that my knee tolerated 25 minutes of running yesterday and THAT, my friends, is exciting. Also, this morning I drafted some farm machinery on my bike ride AND achieved a season record of 48.1 mph on the downhill (although not while I was drafting farm equipment, don’t worry). Who needs coffee when you can start your day like that?Ā  (Okay, I do).Ā  GB is pissed about the 48.1 mph part but I will continue to ride kamikaze style until some people who will remain nameless learn to change the toilet paper roll.

In other news, our vegetable garden is coming along nicely and we have had fresh salad every night for a week now. There is no substitute for eating food that you grew yourself, I tell ya. And also no apparent way to get the dirt out from under your fingernails.

    48.1 MPH?!?!?! You have raised the bar my friend. I might have to ride off the side of a mountain but 50 is my new goal!! šŸ™‚

    Anyway – GREAT news about the pain free running!!! Three cheers for that lovely knee! šŸ™‚

    Yea for veggies! Great for your body and mind. Yes, farm equipment is NOT fun to have to dodge around. The worst are the huge mowers – where the pollen and grass seeds stretch out for miles and miles behind the mower. Awful. My eyes still itch.

    If I could have pulled a 48.1 mph out of my rear, I could have passed the mower much more quickly. Instead it took seemingly forever. boo!

    Be safe! I don’t want YOU having an extendo-crack!
