SB - hope to hear some good news about SO’s test results! And way to get out there and enjoy xc skii! Man, we need some here!

Zoj - hope you are having great snow!

I didn’t post yesterday…kinda blah day walked 2 miles during lunch and that was it other than doing some 60sec x several strength movements I saw on FB (which I saved and tried lol).

Today was solid ride of 30miles on my gravel bike with 3 GF’s/1 dude. Needed to leave the house by 8:45 and I was this close to say I am not coming. But pushed myself and glad I did. Felt great in spite of cold and my rear tire kept on losing air (tubeless). Appreciated the group’s patience and help.

Does anybody watch tennis? Australian open is going on and I watch highlights. Man, great matches. And love the commentators’ colorful remarks. “Delicious” was used for describing Djokovic’s one of the shots. :).

Date night, heading to a live theater show.

Friday was snow cleanup today (and it looks like tomorrow will be as well).

Saturday was a long Zwift ride with a small group. Was meant to be 70 miles, but hardware issues (bike chain stays came loose from trainer skewer, so frame tilted sideways). By the time I got the bike back on the trainer, decided to call it quits at 56 miles. Still probably the longest Zwift ride I've done ...

Today was a short stage of the "Tour du Zwift" - just 16 miles, but with a good hill at the beginning (1000 feet of virtual climbing) - followed by 4 easy miles to spin down for 20 total.

Booked flights to see DD in England in the spring (rah!). Interestingly enough, it'll be the weekend of Charles's coronation, so I'll have been there for the queen's funeral and his coronation.

56miles on Zwift?! Wow hats off to you! That had to be so entertaining....!! And woohooo for a trip to England and witnessing some history being made again! BTW do you still have some distant family there?

1.5hrs on my Fattie for a virgin ride on a real snow!!! The scenery was beautiful but the ride wasn't pretty tho, she is on a heavy side at 38lbs and it was slow and tiring. And this one hill with rock garden - I couldn't make it. I tried freakin 3 times. Just couldn't get my front tire to go where it needed to go, and kept slipping on the rock. Played tire pressure etc, but just couldn't make it :( But glad I went out. First real snow around here.... and it goes to the training bank!

The rest of the day was busy with packing. DH/DD/I are heading to Florida on Wed. Friday-Sunday we are camping at Dry Tortugas National Park yay! I think it is our (DH/I) 43rd (out of 63 NP's) though a few different ones among us (I have never been to Isle Royale and he has never been to Guadalupe). DD is ahead of us like 47 or something. Since DH has been so busy with his business (and left tonight to Chicago again) and no time for preparation for the trip, I am in charge -a bit complicated logistics/packing stuff as there is no drinking water out there and quite a bit of restrictions what/how much you can take with you onto the Ferry. But I got this!! Very excited :)
