I can't believe...

 - I actually went out for a ride on the mtb and didn't crash! I had a lot of fun. And I went alone. I got incredibly muddy and I slipped on ice a couple times. I found out that mtb tires have no traction when caked in mud. And even Marines will laugh at a chic in spandex who has mud streaks up her crack.
 - I opted to run on the treadmill instead of the road yesterday. It had been raining for about 12 hours. It was dark and dreary. I was cold. I wanted to sweat. So to the gym, I dragged my ass. And I got sweaty. And it was glorious.
 - They will hire anyone willing to work for minimum wage at the new Kroger Marketplace in Newport, KY. Wow. Did I just state the obvious? All of northern KY decided to visit this place on Sunday around noon. It took over a half hour to get through the check out line. And every lane was open. There are three cart corrals in the entire parking lot. Fucking genius.
 - A good friend of mine told me I'm intimidating. I've gotten this in the past, but I honestly thought that perception might have changed. I'm so not that girl. I mean, I'm a total softy. I don't get it. I'm totally approachable. In fact, I'll probably approach you. I'm just a clutzy goof. With an obnoxiously loud laugh.
 - I watched two movies this weekend. And two last weekend. And one before that. I rarely watch movies. And I just signed up for Netflix. I fugured I need something to do for these trainer rides during the week because...
 - The "off season base training plan" starts today. I have a schedule. Here we go!
 - As I sit here eating carrots and broccoli, my coworkers are ordering "Five Guys Burger and Fries". Just for shits and giggles, I pulled up the website. And the nutritional info. I decided not to ruin their fun and inform them of nutritional monstrosities they are about to comsume.

I dont get the 5 guys thing.

The economy is such a mess, people are just desperate now a days.

I would comment on your imtimidation quote, but I am scared you will hurt me ;-)

Intimidating? Did you punch one of the clerks at Krogers? And it was very kind of you to not inform your coworkers of the grams of fat they were about to consume. What was it, two or three days worth of fat grams?

It can't be as bad as this place...

they don't even print their nutritional info. They use lard to cook the food, and the largest burger (the quadruple bypass) has been estimated at 8000 calories. Yes, that's eight thousand). Patrons that weigh over 350 pounds eat for free.

Their waitstaff is exclusively scantily clad young women in slutty nurse outfits.

(Yo BDD, she's a pussy cat...just watch out for the claws....)

Oh, MTB riding...._now_ you're in trouble.....

RockstarTri said...

5 guys not healthier than carrots and broccoli? Is this another instance of not being able to believe everything on the internet?

But seriously, indoor trainer base training beginning again is great news. Let the sweating begin.

Jody said...

is it really an off season if you have a schedule????

Ryan said...

If you are going to be accused of being intimidating you NEED to ruin your coworkers day by telling them how many calories they are ingesting...but I do love me some 5 guys fries!!!!

Missy said...

Don't tell me because I can kill some Five Guys burgers. Yeah, you think there's a link between that and my soft gooey center?!?!?!?

Glad you didn't crash. Mtn biking is fun once you get over the fear of busting a leg.
