Here's my indoor workout today since it's been pissy out for the last 3 days and a balmy 49 degrees. Someone turn up the heat! I won't bore you with the details of the actual workout but I had a big FAT BROWNIE beforehand so of course I made sure I suffered for it during the middle section of my Computrainer ride. The pretty little red humps are my HR cresting at around 178. A few things are a given when my HR gets that high sitting on a stationary trainer:
*I stare at the clock without blinking wondering why it's taking so f-ing long to finish the current interval I am on.
*I wonder what chemical imbalance I have that I find this enjoyable.
*I think about having another brownie post ride, for my effort.


In other weekly news, I am back to running again. Phew... 12 long weeks are just a memory now and I'm beginning to prepare for a late season kickoff which will include Timberman, Pumpkinman in South Berwick Maine and Longhorn 70.3 to cap the season. No cyclocross this fall which will be a bummer to miss. Instead, I will bring my cow bell to IM Canada. I will not be participating but rather chillaxin', spectating, and most importantly, tending to the ever important sherpa duties.

This weekend is IM Brazil. Can you hear my Cow Bell Dede? Just put your head down and get to the finish as fast as you can. A big FAT Ghirardelli brownie may await.

Cheers!
