Spinning with an Expert

Raining and icky here today. The scheduled 38 miler on the bike was postponed. I would ride in the cold rain, but not by myself. And the Expert said I wasn’t roping him into my insanity.  Instead, I made him a part of my insanity for the blog.

We took to a spin class plus an extra hour after class, cycling to nowhere.

Here’s my cycling buddy. He looks thrilled to smile for the iPhone.

Lots of you have asked about my knee. Glad to report that it’s feeling at 90%, so I’m pretty ecstatic. The knee is doing better than my mutilated thumb. 

Gross. I know. I literally tell you guys everything.

Injury – chopping onions, not triathlon. Still, I don’t have great luck with thumbs.  [And I need my thumbs for triathlon:]

I feel like I have lost alot of ground in the past two weeks, not running and all. Especially now that the New Orleans countdown is barely sixty days and ticking down. I know I will be reasonably ready, but my hopeful finish of 6:30:00 is probably more like a 7:30:00, but I’m going to still hope.  Have a great week everyone.

    Ouch! Your thumb looks pretty rough. Onions aren't worth it… 🙂 Nice job on the spinning with The Expert. He must be a pretty good guy to go for that long with you. Awesome! You're going to do great in New Orleans! No Sweat!

    Ouch!!! That's a nice chunk out of your thumb. 🙁 That's an awesome spin class there. You've got that HUGE screen. LOVE it. You are such an inspiration.

    I have never taken a spin class with a cool screen like that. Hmmm, I guess I must go to a ghetto gym! LOL! I hope your thumb heals quickly and that your knee is 100% ASAP!

    Glad the knee is better! I'd much rather be biking outdoors, but spin class works well when the weather refuses to cooperate! Take care of that thumb, it has to be ready for the photo ops in 60 days!
