We've been overtaken by one of the many "flu-like" illnesses that's been going around. My 8 day experience with this particular bug can be summed up like so: fever, sore throat, horrible cough, myalgia, malaise, tons of sleeping, really low peak-flows, and not being able to absorb anything as I try to study for my clinical physiology midterm. The worst part of the whole thing has been not being 100% for Elijah and Katie. Thankfully E's been his usual self through most of this, other than the occasionally runny nose and low-grade temp. E's also been quite entertaining these past 8 days.

Removed snow from concrete. Worked on bikes with Elijah. Stretching. Planks. Side-stabilizers. Monster Walks.

The ferrous is pretty much ready now. I am not. Hence the lame gear ratio.

One Year Ago, Part 2


Busy day ahead of us today. E's got his first birthday party, first haircut, several naps, a run with mom & dad, terrorizing the dogs, and destroying the house. More pics later to recap the day.

One Year Ago, Part 1

Nothing. Just some clinical physiology and stats. Felt good to have a mellow day. Should've stretched though.

1 hour run-walk with Katie and Elijah. Threw some hill climbs in just to make it painful. Stretching. Pre-Birthday dinner with Uncle Chris & Aunt Mary.

Got out of bed before the family and completed a cardiac physiology module before work. Now it's of to work for 12 hours. LATER.

45 minute run-walk around the hood with Katie and Elijah. Stretching. Push-Ups. Sit-Ups. Costco. Studying Stats. Making Dinner, Eating, and Watching Lost. Another rough day on Harrison Ave.

1:08 run-walk around the hood, through the slush, pushing Big E in his chariot. Lots of stretching. Some push-ups, some sit-ups, and some baby curls. Lunch with beautiful Katie. Naps on the couch with Elijah. Completing stats homework. A very nice day.

Elijah has been digging the snow.

I've been focusing on core and avoiding the basement and the pursuit of watts.

I've noticed a correlation between core, flexibility, and knees. The more I stretch and do core, the better my knees feel. Still working on foot beds to get the support right. Still tweaking the position. This week marks the final adjustment to the B-Bike fit and the beginning of tweaking the Ferrous. Things are starting to come together.
