If you were wondering, last week I biked 100.5 miles, not including the 2 hours and 40 minutes I spent on the Spin bike at the gym. It turns out I can read while on the Spin bike, which increases the appeal a little bit. This week so far I have biked 20.8 miles; today I took the day off because I had a terrible headache. I have looked back in my running log through to May and I can’t find a day where I didn’t do something – biking used to be what I did on my day off from running (and many of the other days, too). So this is odd. Instead, I baked a loaf of bread using whey from a bottle of goat’s milk I made cheese out of. I also ate a bunch of cookies and studied MySQL.
It is a magical life, I tell you.
Anyway, with regard to the comic (oh yeah): Bryan eventually realized that I had a flat on my bike and not on my car and helped me call a cab to take me downtown. I finally found out that my brakes had been rubbing on the rear tire and worn a hole through which the tube squished and subsequently ruptured. It was a trying day, since I went through two tubes before the bike shop figured out I needed a new tire.
I’m for bed. I have a new story being published (it is actually available for preview/online purchase right now); I’ll put up more details about that tomorrow or Thursday.
