I made a big step today and finally bought a road bike!!! ~ Meet Cadence. She was in my possession for less than two hours before I broke her. Grrr.
I was out for a 25 mile ride and at 15 miles she quit shifting into the smaller gears so after doing everything I could think of and poking everything I could poke, I headed home and took a shower and after I was all cleaned up, Steve went up to her, smacked her good and she started working again. Hmm.
I'll take her out again for some hill repeats this week to see how I do climbing with the double crank.
I ran for an hour this morning and was beat or I would have taken her back out for some more slick rainy roads once Steve "fixed" her.
Mai and I decided to make Poo Bars tonight. Have you guys had these things? They are a Precision Nutrition recipe and I'm not sure of the correct name but I got them off of Skwigg's blog a couple years ago and she called them Poo Bars ('cause they look just like a bathroom log when they're done cooking). HOWEVER...Mai and I realized when we were mixing them up and dipping our fingers into the batter that the best part of making Poo bars is when they are uncooked! ... so we decided to see if they will last in the fridge (the only thing I'm worried about is the bananas going funky) and we'll eat them like cake batter this week for pre and post workout yumminess.
Purpose Driven Life
Day 4 QTC: Since I was made to last forever, what is the one thing I should stop doing and the one thing I should start doing today?
I could think of quite a few scenarios to answer this question, but I'm going with this one:
I should stop worrying what people think.
I should start making relationships with all people the most important thing in my day- not just the ones I have (and need work on) with my family and friends, but the relationships I have with the checker at Safeway and the gas station attendant, people at the gym, the person whose eye I catch driving down the road...everyone.
P36 "This life is preparation for the next"...and I need to keep that at the forefront of my mind. I have work to do here on Earth and I would hate for this life to end and realize that I never got around to it.
P39 "We will enjoy unbroken fellowship with God, and he will enjoy us for an unlimited, endless forever." WOW WOW WOW - unbroken fellowship with God. I mean, c'mon - does it get any better than that? I cannot wait to meet my maker and share unbroken fellowship with Him.
