Tough night of cycling. Ascending is my nemesis.

Today I am trying out my repair to the hipster lawnmower. I did not have to mow in June since we received so little rain.

Wordle: five, my starter was DRONE
Connections: perfect, Blue > Yellow > Purple > Green

    Wordle in 5 starting with CHANT. First 3 letters in my second guess but so many options for the last two letters. Connections: blue, green, purple, yellow.

    Close to 30 runners showed up for the GUTS run and pizza night. Fun group of folks.

    Heading into town to pick up my Peachtree Bib and drop a car off at the end (Dip Stick’s Porch).

    Otherwise nothing too exciting happening here. Dogsitting Emma and Mia through Sunday.

    Wordle in 3! A good day for my starting word.

    After a trip to the chiro, I decided since I wouldn’t get a chance to ride until Friday, I better get my ass on my bike. I’d been missing my heart rate monitor for a battery. I swapped it last night and I could tell the Covid was still with me- I hit 167 a couple times and really wasn’t working that hard. Overall I felt pretty good. 14 miles. And Paulie, your climbing has the same problem mine does- dragging beer weight uphill.

    In the office, though they will cut the day short, I’m stuck as I’m working the velodrome this evening. Tomorrow, helping a friend disassemble her barn. The unfortunate part is it’s on the other side of the city, so a good drive with hopefully little traffic.

    Stage for the sprinters today.


  3. Since it’s apparent the ants have no desire to quit biting me, I hope that my body can develop some sort of immunity to them.

    • I have taken an allergy pill to mitigate the swelling and pain.

        I take allergy pills most days – gotta love ant bites.

        And – seems the spider webs are way worse this year – it could be the Joro’s – that haven’t gotten fill grown yet.

        • These ants are clever. Today I have a bit under my flabby tricep, and three more on my right chest. Apparently I wasn’t able to kill it before it could migrate to my chest and name me again.

    Allan picked up Rohan from the airport – he was remarkably awake – he said he didn’t sleep much on the airplanes – so we met up for dinner.
    He’s very much a 16 year old.

    Allan is working some Peachtree kids race this morning – but its only I think 1 mile -so he should be home mid morning I’d think.

    I guess I need to get to the grocery store for some food stuffs for tomorrow, (going to a pool party in the afternoon after Allan gets home from working hte Peachtree). I’m guessing they will be closed?

  5. Breaking my fast with my first tomato sandwich of the year. It is sloppy, and delicious.

  6. NBC must have invested a ton of money into the Despicable Me franchise because they are promoting the hell out of it during the TdF.

    • Barb says:

      its a summer movie – and it has to compete with Inside Out 2
      (I have no idea – I’m just guessing)

  7. Barb says:

    connections – yellow, green, blue then purple.
    Wordle in 4 – I had so very few letters left that would work after 3, there was basically no word except the correct one

    This week is nice and quiet at work. I have a lot of stuff to do but not many people are around to bother me.

    Every year since I stopped I am grateful to not be running the Peachtree. Happy for those who enjoy it, but I never did.

    • Injury took the Peachtree away from me, then after that it was a lack of desire to run. Glad I did it, glad I no longer do.

    • Barb says:

      I never enjoyed getting up so early for it – so – when we finally decided we were done (& Allan had to do more work for it for the fire dept – I never looked back)

    • Jenka says:

      I also never enjoyed getting up so early, the trouble of getting there and the trouble of getting home, etc. It was more hassle than fun for me. I know lots of people enjoy it and I’m glad they do, it’s just not for me!

  9. In from a short morning of choring. How am I going to lose weight like this?

    – Lawn “mowed”. It hadn’t grown much due to the lack of rain, and I don’t think that I have fixed it completely.

    – Some potatoes, tomatoes, and beets harvested (not many of each). I will be picking some corn for dinner.

    – Edging with weed whacker done, blower used to make things nice.

    Have showered, and am sweating still. I am going to watch the end of today’s TdF stage and then move onto something else.

  10. Sally says:

    I love the tradition of the Peachtree and the hanging out afterwords. This will be my 40th year!

    • Plus, you are an outstanding athlete!

      If had was able to do more than a handful, the last one I attempted to run completely was in 2001 when the IT Band I injured during the marathon I ran that year flared up, I was done.

    • Jenka says:

      HEH. You just named the thing I dislike the most about the Peachtree, which is the endless hanging out afterwards. I just want to go home! There was one year I ran it about 12-ish years ago when it was pouring rain and freezing cold, and everyone went straight home afterwards. That was my favorite one!

      Congrats on your 40th, that’s amazing!

  11. Lunch of leftover taco fixings, but, this time with an ear of corn from WLF. I can’t tell you how much I can’t believe that I have grown corn again, and it’s tasty.

  12. My hip is hurting again. It had been less painful recently, so much so that I didn’t even remember to ask the doctor about it last week.

    Also, my increased weight is keeping me from some fun. I wanted to get a beer today, but my uncomfortable clothes have changed my mind.
