Well, it ain’t all bad. So last night I had a brief discussion with my mom. Her (and my sis) greatest concered was me on the bike. After my bike accident and hearing other stories of cyclist getting hit by cars, they were worry (which is normal). I do what I can to protect myself. Helmet (of course). Ride on quieter roads. Ride with others. Give cars right of way. ….. I asked them to...

Revelation Last night, I did not sleep. I think I dozed off for about an hour or so. Today I only took a 1 1/2 hr nap. Body definitely need rest. But before I go, I just have a revelation this morning I like to share. Going back to this post, I was talking about how my dad give up his career for his family. Now, I was thinking about my training. Earlier this year, I was really pushing hard and...

A quickie.I had trouble sleeping last night. Barely get any sleep in. This morning, woke up and I pull a tendon around my left hip flexor. Had trouble walking. Going to bail out on the run. Instead, hitting the pool with a pull. Spent the morning doing some home stuff and sending resume.
It is time to start looking forward. Things are never as grim as they look. 🙂

The Hard Way On Sat, I went on a brutal bike ride. By brutal, I mean, it hurts. It hurts a lot. I ain’t here to say for some self ego boosting purpose. Off the bat, i am already thinking why am I giving myself so much pain. The hills are fine. Despite everything….if there is one way I am feeling now..it can be put into the lyrics i found from a song I am listening to: Let me walk in...

It is the question that drives us… Hit the gym yesterday and went for a swim afterwards. My whole body is still aching from the volume from the weekend’s training. Swim was a bit tough but I managed to get 1 k. I broke it into 200s, rotating between pull and free. Will asked me why I tri. I have no idea. That’s what I want to find out as well. I mean, I love the way the bike...

Thinking..thinking..and more thinking. You would expect after Sat’s brutal bike ride, I would just rest for Sun. I didn’t. In fact after Church, I bailed on Sun school and went on a ride with Jen and Julian (they are a couple that go to my Church). Along the way, we met up with a rider and he asked to ride with us. It turned out I met him in the pool before (he was an instructor). We...

Lost one of my leg some where up there…. Ask and you shall receive. I asked. And today I received in full. Beyond full. I kinda wish I didn’t ask that much. But that’s just my weak side saying…. Did a ‘leisure’ 5 hr ride with Darren. For me, it wasn’t leisurely. It was for Darren. He gmap the route and sent it to me. I looked at the elevation. Oh not too...

Signals This is from an old Sienfield episode. It ain’t the exact dialogue… George – Jerry, you gotta pick up the signals. If she smiles at you, that’s a signal. If she gives you a number, that’s a signal. When you first see her, if she gives u a handshake, that’s no good. But if she gives u a hug…This is the episode where Jerry met a lady on one of his...

It’s good to ride again…. Last Fri after work, went over to my friend’s place. He is a great photographer and he needs some practice. Of course, this is a great opportunity to get some bike porn :). I couldn’t resist. I have him took a few side pics of my riding position. We also got a video of me goign 140 RPM. Will upload those later this week. I haven’t post for a...

What a weekend should be.. Do you know what I just realize? Biking is really really good. It is. Really really good. The sun was out on both days. It was still chilly and windy. It’s still good. On Sat, after helping a friend move, me, Pat, Donna and Jen went to Ashbridge Bay to ride around. I rode with them for about 2 hr then when they headed back I rode by myself. It was really windy (E...
