I could have commuted yesterday but I would not have had time to do the scheduled workout, so I succumbed to the trainer. This was the only day this week that I could have ridden outside.

Slow, yet lots of fun with the road slicks and fixed gear on low priority snow covered roads. Started snowing like mad just after I got in... The ride home tonight should be beautiful. I love riding home through fresh snow in the dark after the evening car commute traffic has dwindled to almost nothing.

Nice tailwind this morning which will turn into a headwind on the ride home. Getting to surf the wind this am is worth the work this evening.

Ok, I know some of you have seen this before, but here's my arduous 5 yard slipper commute.



I took a long detour downstairs to the kitchen for some coffee. Path was clear, although I did have to dodge some yarn balls Lola had pulled out of the knitting basket. I opted for socks over slippers today, the current set of slippers don't have backs to them, which makes climbing kind of a pain. I have to keep my heels down and toes clenched to get up the stairs faster. If anyone has recommendations for durable slippers I can get a lot of miles out of, I'm looking for recommendations. Clinchers, obviously.

 :lol:

That looks like a Hyabusa... my commute would go much faster in those. Although they don't handle very well.

Work from home, eh? What profession? I've been trying to get my boss to let me work from home for years...so far, no dice.

Graphic design. I work from home for a company in Columbus, OH, and travel there to work once a month or so.

It's ok. I miss having face time with coworkers, and since we live in rural suburbs, and have only one (working) car, it's kind of isolating, and a creative vacuum.

My sister is a freelance graphic designer (Quark on Mac). My mother was a commercial illustrator. My brother is a jeweler. I am the black sheep geek of the family.

I think those slippers would have kept my feet warmer than my sock/bag/sock/shoe layering did this morning!


Do they come with SPD cleat mounts?

Another tailwind this morning. I'm learning to be happy with the headwind I get on the ride home, as it is the same thing that made my ride fun earlier in the day.

I got in some bonus resistance training on my way home this evening. :-)
