My legs are way sorer than I expected them to be after that workout yesterday. I guess I should have thrown in a few more sets of biceps. Then again, my biceps are pretty darn sore too.

I was orginally planning on switching things up a little this week too since I'd just had a rest day yesterday. But with the sore legs I opted to stick to Monday as a rest day anyway.

I did finally spend some time on the road bike. It is quite a different sensation from the mountain bike. I could definitely get up more speed, which isn't necessarily a good thing. Faster just means a harder and uglier fall, at least in my head. I had a hard time getting used to the gears and the angle of the brakes is way different than the mountain bike. I only rode for about 10-12 miles. The only thing that really hurts is my neck and shoulders. The road bike certainly doesn't have the shock absorbtion of the mountain bike either. The long ride to the beach should be an interesting one.

The picture is the happy graduate on his way to reality. Notice he's still smiling!!

I'm so happy for Tyler (and for the two of you!)! Way to go!

I'm impressed he is being entreprenurial too and not just waiting for The Big Corporate Kitchen to find him. Gotta be doing the creative thing these days. And good work creates more opportunities.

My nephew loves the RR store in SD. Glad they confirmed your shoe selection.

Hot and humid here in the midwest...makes me set for HOA :-)

Hope Lisa is feeling well... give her my best.
