OK I’m still working on doing Bike MS. The big thing now seems to be making my backside survive as my legs are doing fine in the rides I can make my butt do. So far I can get about 20 miles before my backside starts protesting, but I don’t know if that is a per-day limit or just a per-segment limit, that if I get off the bike every 10 miles of so I’m good for a Century ride or even longer. One thing I do know is that the gel seat pad I’m riding with now is part of the problem, but the other cover/pad combination is even worse than the gel pad. So… yeah, trying to figure out that one. The legs, though, the legs are butter, the legs are soooo smmoooothhhhh.
I was busy last night blowing up kobolds at the RPG so I’m watching the Bud Shootout on the replay and I just got to the part where Jeff Gordon did the barrel roll down the back straight, up until now it was a good clean race with nobody getting hurt, in spite of some visually spectacular wrecks. I didn’t hear about the winner last night so I’m watching this like it was live and waiting to find out who wins. I only know one driver in the race last night, Michael Waltrip. I used to know a lot more active drivers, but they eventually retired (or died). So as I watch this, they are getting ready for the green, white, checker finish. I’m not into live blogging, so I’m going to cut it off here and watch the race.
