Wednesday was a looooong day. The stars aligned in my favour which was nice - I went to a trade show at the Niagara falls casino all day and by coincodence my new bike showed up at the postal outlet just across the border ahead of schedule! After the show I crossed over and picked up my bike. What great timing, as this saves me having to make another 3hr trip to get the bike. Plus I can expense the majority of the trip! WIN!
Needless to say I was up all night assembling and tuning my new bike! The brakes gave me alot of trouble, I forgot how much 'fun' it is to setup a cantilever brake system. I used to be able to do it easily but apparently I lost my touch. I'm happy to say it all went together just fine, the bike looks good but I didn't get a chance to ride it since it was almost midnight by the time I finished. Actually I still have to exchange the rubber on the training/race wheels so I still have work to do this evening.
|Consultants. Too Much Time On Their Hands.|
Today has been crazy. Babysitting a consultant can take alot of energy but I am happy to say I'm a big step closer to finishing a major project. I'm feeling drained and with all the talking I've been doing over the past couple of days and now my throat hurts. I think I'm going to skip tonights workout and rest up, I need it. Thats 2 days of no training which would be scary except even the voices in the back of my mind are too tired to scream at me to go workout. A good sign that a break is needed.
Oh and I set a new record this morning! Last night's on-the-road meal consisted of McDonalds. Yes, hamburger and fries. Yum Yum! I am happy to report I woke up at my lowest recorded weight in the history of EVAR! I thought for sure that with all the pizza I have been eating that the scale would go in the wrong direction. I'm impressed. 171.0
