Yesterday morning I went for another bike ride, this one around most of what had become my routine prior to the illness. I went a little more than twenty-one miles, cutting off the final four. I know that I am only cheating myself, but I just didn’t feel like pushing myself over the limits yesterday.
Today Will Be Busy
Tuesdays normally suck around the office these days, today is no different. I have (had) an 8:00am meeting and I need to crank out a release for a demo to be given tomorrow.
On top of that today I will have another German class, one for which I will be ill-prepared (I’m sure that there is a thirty-letter noun meaning “ill-prepared person” but I’m too busy to look it up).
And on top of that there is no Le Tour to distract me today.
Tomorrow Will Be Even Busier!
In case you’ve been sleeping under a rock you should know that tomorrow is my fiftieth birthday (“It’s all down hill from here!”)
I have decided to take tomorrow off from work and do some, if not all, of the items listed below:
- Go on a fifty-mile bike ride. I should try to record my ride using my new Garmin Edge 500 computer. (I’d link to the computer on Garmin’s site but it’s an “older” model — didn’t get the 510 because deep down inside I’m cheap — and they choose to no longer show it.)
- Go to the Braves game — it starts at 12:35pm!
- Eat dinner at Der Biergarten (It’s my birthday choice, of course I would pick this place. Actually, I was going to go to dinner alone at a super-expensive restaurant, but this will be more fun.) downtown with my boss and some of his friends.
If I can’t be in Iowa having a great time I might as well make the best of being in Atlanta.
