17 December 2008

Wow, I haven't been on a bike in over a month and I hate it! Been working alot of extra hours, Christmas is coming, yadda yadda yadda...
I am not without a plan, however. Seeing as I own Mt. Mitchell in the 2009 Assault (at least that's my goal :) ), I have got to get cracking! I am on the treadmill daily, trying to drop some weight; I tried to carry too much rider up the mountain last year. I am realistic, however, in that Christmas is coming and the food is too good to not touch it. So, I'll try some moderation to go with my exercise.
Also, I have asked for an indoor trainer for Christmas so I can start putting in the miles in spite of the weather. I am getting excited about this and looking forward to a great season on the bike.
Be safe, be blessed.

1 December 2008

Now that my riding "season" is over, I have headed back to the woods to do some hunting. The deer season in SC (longest in the nation) ends New Year's Day, so until then, I am pretty much off the bike. I know my buttocks shall greatly regret this, as I will have no callouses between me and the seat when January rolls around, but we will manage. In the mean time, I am spending some awesome time in the great out-of-doors. Just this morning, I got up well before the sun to go sit in a damp, chilly forest. It was too windy for deer movement, but as the sun came up, the woods came alive with color. And so peaceful; no phones, no lights, no motorcars....
It's a good time to reboot and get my head clear. I love my family and my job, but everyone needs a break now and again. So, if you're still riding...
Be safe, be blessed.
