Couch Potato

Well, today was another day spent safely secured to the sofa. I'm turning into a regular couch potato now. My hopes of getting in an easy session today were shattered this morning, when the symptoms of this pesky illness persisted.

So what am I doing? Eating and sleeping mostly. Oh, and worrying about how fat I'm getting, I can feel the weight packing onto me. I'll be deadly on the descents this spring, like a projectile. Of course, it will take me a while to get up, but you can't have it all now, can you?

I'm also turning into a pro-blog commentator. My quest is to track down any worth-while blog and comment as much as possible. Maybe if I can't ride by bike full-time, I can surely write about it. Here are some highly recommended stops in the blogosphere:

Tim Jackson, aka The MasiGuy - http://masiguy.blogspot.com/

Team MWC, FTJ, NGT - http://ashwinearl.blogspot.com/

Keith over at The Chainline - http://chainline.blogspot.com/

Digital Peloton - http://worldcycling.blogspot.com/

Ben Saunders - http://www.bensaunders.com/

Iain over Herneweb - http://www.herneweb.com/

Philip Gomes, in the land down under - http://www.spinopsys.com/

I'm crossing my fingers and toes and anything else that is crossable that I feel ok enough to at least put in an easy session tomorrow. I am driving the wife absolutely nuts, more than usual. She told me the only thing worse than living with a cyclist is living with a sick cyclist...

Once I get back on the bike, I intend to bring my digital camera with me and start taking more pictures. If they turn out, I plan to post them on the blog. That should spice things up a bit...

We've only got 37 days to go before the winter Olympics. Get ready, folks!

Aw shucks. Jeez, now I'm blushing.

I hope the infection is better, enough, that you can get a light session in tomorrow.

Get the rest and enjoy the time with your wife.

Skibby,

Exactly. The content is far too vulgar and radical for me to "endorse". :)

No, but seriously, it was an honest mistake. I forgot. Please forgive me. Please. :)
