Life is Good...unless you have chapter 7 or chapter 11 bankruptcy

This weather has just been horrible here in Southern California. I've had the worst cold/allergies these past days. I've been popping so many vitamin C pills it's not even funny and taking so much airborne. All of it has worked and now I'm feeling much better, just in time for Friday too!

This morning I went on an amazing 30 mile bike ride around my town, and it was no walk on the beach. I pushed it hard, since I haven't trained in two weeks because of the rain. (I'm a competitive cyclist)

I came across another cyclist on the path and I made an aggressive attack on him (drafting then flying by him) and that sent him after me in a chase. We kept taking turns drafting each other and trying to pull ahead for 5-10 miles...until he pulled over to answer his phone (perhaps it was a phony phone call?) I had my headphones on so I wouldn't hear anything in the first place...but that got me motivated again...I'm extremely competitive and "winning" that little race just made my day.

It appears my body hasn't decreased much in muscle efficiency and I'll be back to training starting tomorrow.


The human body is a work of art; I love life right now.

  15. Biking is one of my main hobbies. I absolutely love soaring through the powerful winds, breathing in life itself, adrenaline pumping and your legs aching. Feeling like you have to stop... But, don't, because life pushes you to the limit.

  25. Good thoughts, even when you felt bad physically, I had flu a few month ago, and now every time I go out of the Gym, I use towel to cover my head even when people find it ridiculous, but I rather doing that than awake with pain in my throat x_x
