Just 99 miles to go

Happy belated New Years.

Yeah, I'm like rest of the losers who let the blog go in the off season.
What can I say.....

I've been riding very little compared to a few months ago.
Still getting out atleast twice a week but but the milage is low.
I can feel how outta shape I've gotten.
I'm not sure I could do 2 laps at Rosarvyille (20 miles) if I wanted to.
The weightlifting is going good, I feel stronger and bulkier than ever but the cycling sure is paying for it. I've been scared to get on the scale. I know most of the weight is muscle, but its still scary seeing the weight gain.

I have a retraction to make about a piece of equipment that I purchased a few months ago.
If you recall, I bragged about buying a $14 cassette and how it seemed to perform just as good as the $60 name-brand.
All WAS going well till the other day.
On a night ride at the Rose my shifting started to act funny.
Finally, while shifting once, it started free spinning.
Upon inspection I found only 8 cogs on my 9 speed cassette.
I can only assume that the 2nd smallest cog had disinegrated.
So, while its working properly, a cheap cassette is fine but when its done. Its done.

If you've noticed we've got the SM100 countdown timer going again.
I was playing with it trying to put my time from last year underneath the timer but got annoyed.
I know its not that hard. I'll try again later.

Anything else?
I think I'm going to give Yoga a shot.
I've downloaded one video so far and am going to give a few weeks to see if it helps.
I hear alot of people say how good it is.
We'll see.
