      Two hours of Z2 on the stationary, steady grind around 200W, almost put me to sleep early in the morning. Couldn't resist the outdoors in the afternoon and did approx 2h/20km of Z2 XC skiing. Top it all off with a late afternoon one hour hike with the dogs in the deep snow and I'm done for the day.

      1.5hrs OUTSIDE finally! The day off from work gave me the perfect opportunity to enjoy the salty mess of melting snow and mud. Felt great to get off the trainer and feel the bike working. My seat post was too loose though and started slipping down which lead to more of a knee workout then I was hoping for..
      Dusk and cold when I got home:

      4+ hours yesterday around Bear Mountain, just over 70 miles, including a 20 minute slaughter-fest up Perkins Drive. Today was another 4-hour day up north to avoid the snow, just under 80 miles. Good times, good times

      I did the second half of the Villanova vs UConn M BB game, almost exactly 1 hour of base, on the spin bike, my wife did most of the first half of the game. (I wish the score has been different).

      put in 20 minutes to work, and an hour home on the fixed gear. Nice change of pace from the commuter beast.

      Went out for a ride this evening. About an hour and a half on the trail. I almost had a heart attack when my friend thought he heard something scampering across the trail behind him and let out the loudest, most horrific scream I've ever heard. I thought some maniac was about to run out from behind the trees and stab someone.

      That happened to my brother and I one night on the trail. Heard a bunch of crashing around in the woods, a deep bellow scream and then smelled something that had the odor of stank, wet dog. I figured it was Bigfoot and just put the hammer down!

      Dude, if you wear the tights under, what use is the chamois?

      Hey now, at least I will know what I sound like when I am brutally murdered... all over a big boulder I displaced as I made my way up the hill.

      Good call. It's a tough predicament since my new saddle is still a little abrasive and the shorts are much heavier duty in that zone. Luckily it was still too cold to get a serious crotch funk going.

      Without getting into how creepy that was: AWESOME! Then you know how soft and comfy they are as a base layer!

      I'd just never seen another pair. I got mine straight from the team. Didn't know they were out there for general consumption.
      I love mine! I rode in the snow on Saturday and the bike gave up before I was cold!

      I rode to the gas station to get gas for my lawn mower because I was too lazy to shuffle cars around to get the truck out and didn't want to haul gas in my Rabbit. Somehow ridding my bike seemed like less work than shuffling cars... At the very least it was more fun.

      Sounds like someone having or getting ready for dinner. Animals get really active around dusk.
