      I think the reason it happens is that DM software updates have unintended consequences 😂

      It's worth every penny I pay for it. I just don't understand their business model.

    tired Short spin 5.8 mi 00:20 17.2mph pace

    Short spin; high cadence workout. Quit after 20 minutes - motivation just not there. I'm learning. Sometimes powering through a crappy workout does more harm than good.

  5. RUN
    tired Dreadmill 3 mi 00:31 10:22 pace

    Felt like $h!t the whole workout, and couldn't wait to get off of the treadmill; calves and shins on fire - not sure why - and couldn't get them to unflare.

      I have been grain free - no bread, pasta, etc., for about a year, except for occasional lapses for parties, dinners (and then only the smallest bites). My gut clearly didn't like that big hoagie roll. That's what I get for being lazy.

  16. VELO
    good Fitness Center 6.2 mi 00:20 18.3mph pace

    Very short, high cadence spin to flush out the legs. Serious lack of sleep the last couple of days and I just couldn't get motivated to stay on the spin bike.

    Finally a sunny day above freezing, so I was planning on running a 3-mile MAF test at the base track... Except it was covered in snow. So, I ran along Shark Blvd - not exactly flat. And it showed w... read more

      I called the NLP back later in the evening to check, the dispatcher told me an officer did go out and that it was “not as reported “ and that the child was fine - a mother working on a Sunday who brought her kid with her.
