NO MOTIVATION

I HAVE HAD ANY MOTIVATION TO BIKE AT ALL.  I AM WORKING ON LOSING WEIGHT AND SO FAR HAVE LOST ABOUT 25 POUNDS.  I WILL KEEP IT UP AND WORK TO GET BACK ON MY BIKE

I don’t wanna go…

I am on my second week of riding everyday.  Today I didn’t ride when I got up.  I normally just go today I am not motivated.  I did make some things in my studio.  But still not desire to go anywhere.  THIS MEANS I HAVE TO GO.  If i don’t go all my hard work will blow up in my face.  So come the lunch hour I am at least gonna go around the block.

 

UPDATE:

I did go for a quick ride.  It was short and sweet but I DID IT

Found a drunk person.

I went for a ride today.  I was a about two blocks house from my house riding right next to a car dealership when I notice a pair of tennis shoes then legs and feet and finally ahead sticking out wedged between a retaining wall and a parked Jeep.  it was easily over a 100 degrees outside.  Honestly I thought this lady was dead.  I rode over to one of the sales persons and told them.  Honestly I didn’t want to start poking her in case she was you know not alive.  Luckily the lady was just passed out and not dead.  She was the strangest thing I have found yet on my bike rides.

Dang it

So I got up early this morning and picked a ton of stickers out of my tires patched it what I could and replaced the tube.  I was putting the tire back on when I felt my old enemy back pain.  My idea of going on a great ride this afternoon was crushed my back is now screaming out in a melody of off keyed music that I don’t want.

Bad news is that my birthday is tomorrow and I hurt!!

First flat in 6 months

I have had my new bike for almost 6 months after the theft of my Giant bike I lovingly referred to as Izzo. I have put a little over 350 miles on it. Which is twice the amount of miles I did last year. Saturday I got my first flat. Right now Skaro is hanging out in my living room waiting for a new tire. I have the tire, I have everything I need except desire. I am my own worse enemy I start doing really well and then quit and then loose everything I gained.

I made it to the trees

Blaze and went for a bike ride on Saturday. It was to some where I have wanted to ride since I started being able to get some mileage under belt. We rode out to Old Mesilla home of the infamous Billy the Kid after that we headed out of town gps is at best iffy so we rode between 17 and 20 miles.

The views were amazing. I am still amazed I don’t die. I live the reflections in water around the trees.

We rode home on the complete darkness except for the poor light from our handlebars and occasional car. We so need new brighter lights. Blaze was amazingly observant he found a pocket knife and a pair of glasses along the rode.

I am amazed I am not dead!

Exceeding Temp

I was riding today when my iPod stopped. It was overheating. It happens alot out here in the desert. It’s just the beginning of summer and it’s already hot. I cooled my iPod of by putting it inside my tube bag and not in the top where it has a plasti. It took about 20 minutes for it to cool down so out of my 60 minute ride twenty of it was me listening to my own heavy breathing. Tomorrow is my day off so I am planning to ride down to the hickory groves it’s about 12 miles from where I live. It’s somewhere I have always wanted to ride. I hope there are no dead skunks.
