[Sloth] Total Control Racing!


Recommended Posts

 

I realize this song isn’t about bike racing, or perhaps anything at all, but it’s totally kicking and I’m going with it. 

 

I’m terrible about challenges. The only thing I promise to do is listen to this song before every bike ride. 

 

I have Thursday night training races, the Borah Epic (40 mile off road) on June 8 and the Lutsen 99er (99 mile off road) on June 23.  I may also do the Elm Creek Menacing 40 June 15.  I’m not getting off to a great start this year*, the goal is simply to finish these.  Any result better than getting swept up is gravy. 

 

* Not a euphemism, it’s actually Minnesotan for I’m in very shitty shape.

Here! And I hope there is Lycra. Not saying I won't follow if there isn't, I just hope you're gonna give your public what they want. 

I'm more than adequate. Leave Kanye out of this.

Does this mean you didn't think it was totally awesome? 'cause it is.

Woohoo! Getting slothed with Sylvaa.

Here! And I hope there is Lycra. Not saying I won't follow if there isn't, I just hope you're gonna give your public what they want. 

 

What's with Nottingham* bands and talking through the song like they're journaling?

 

*My command of English accents is terrible, maybe its a general English thing.

 

ETA, the other band I was thinking of was The Streets which are from Birmingham.

 

Lurking in the background. Checking out cycling info. No lycra curiosity, as I have a lycra-king of my own.

 

Nice to see you.  

 

I'm not gonna lie. I'm just here for the lycra [emoji6] 

 

I think I still owe you a pic from last challenge.

 

Finally the racing season is upon us! Woot woot! The sign that Winter is officially finished and time to get out and kick butt.

 

It's been pretty cold.  I'm not convinced winter is completely done with us.

 

 

 

Round is a shape!

I saw that.  Which neighborhood?  I might want a piece of that once school is out.

 

Hey!  Am gonna try some biking too!  I'll follow along but we need more lycra.  Despite the title, your last challenge was decidedly low on lycra, all things considered.

 

I thought you already did a fair amount of biking.  Yes, last challenge was a big dull dud.  Nice of you to give me another shot.

 

Excited for your races and I'll admit my ambivalence towards lycra...  

 

Maybe you're looking at the wrong folks in lycra.

 

I came here because I was told there was lycra.  And euphemisms.  And also NOT euphemisms.

 

There is a dearth of euphemisms around here.

Legs were feeling heavy.  I did a 75 minute easy spin for recovery after the kids went to bed.  No lycra was worn - knicker length baggy shorts, wool base, weird-fabric hi-viz jersey.

 

Nothing worth noting happened yesterday.

I do do a fair bit of cycling, but the past two challenges have been all about getting my running legs back, so I've only been out on my bike (except for commuting) like once since March.  I'd love to be going on a long MTB every weekend once the snow clears and the trails dry out.  

 

Night time run last night?  That's hard to imagine motivating.  By the time the dinner is eaten I'm ready to check out.  Good on you!
