sickness and health

sitting here with a sick kid today. sent the wife out christmas shopping. we were supposed to hit the slopes today. Varmint is now four years old and beginning year three of skiing. he just needs to master STOPPING.

i hit the trainer this morning for some TT intervals at 85%. the first one absolutely sucks, once warmer though, the second one seems easier.

i will rock the harpoon indoor TT. i will beat baloneyman and ruthless aggression. i just need to figure out what tires to use.

okay, a setback on teh weight loss thing. baloneyman sabotaged me with the 'barn people party'. more "video" of that forthcoming. to say the least, my evil nemesis had a party with wicked good food (complete with take home bags), good fun, and my favorite beer of the winter (Sam Adams Winter Lager*). Mmmmmmmmm. I have been afraid to get on the scale.
My new turbo trainer came in and i've done some good time the last three days due to being snowed in. Damn snow stopped me from my annual, "Shortest day of the year ride". Roads are crap. and riding 40 miles tonight, just not gonna happen.

wife talking about a trip to Italia in the spring... during the giro... i can rent/buy a bike and do whatever i want... WhAt'S the CaTcH?
