Sorry to hear that. Missing out on a day like today in Dec is almost criminal.

Agreed. Feckers never called so they can go fuck themselves, I'm riding tomorrow (if the weather cooperates that is).

I can't say I went for a run 'cause there was lots of stopping and going on 'cause my co-hare and I were 'planning' Sun's trail, but I did jog a bit today.

Not the same as riding. Not at all!

Winter might be here soon. It's pissing down rain for the second day this week since Monday. Arrgh. At least I got out yesterday for 11.4 miles of single track... in shorts. It was 63 degrees.

Rain/snow mix, here. Dropping to 19deg F, by nightfall, with 1"-3" overnight.

That was easy.

They rolled me into the cardiac cath lab at 0825 and I was back in the recovery room at 0905. They found no blockage which is a great relief.

I need to watch my cholesterol and we need to determine why I get dizzy when my HR goes over 175 or so but, with a family history of heart issues and atherosclerosis, it's great to have confirmation of no blockage and no structural issues.

You can start by taking off that silly HR monitor Gerry. That and a glass of red wine a day. Keep on keeping on.

The wine suggestion is one that I'll strongly consider. I'm not much of a pill person so it's a better alternative. Thanks!

So I finally got my ride in yesterday and now that I have my REI jacket (forget the model but it rocks) the only part of me that is cold is my feet. I have booties and I wear thick wool socks but my feet are still freezing.

Suggestions ? Will something like silk and/or goretex type liners help do you think ?

I can ride down into the teens with the winter shoes and chemical warmers. There are ones that just stick under your toes, and another that covers the footbed. Both work great. Those and booties should work for you.

Feet sweat too. Maybe it isn't too cold, but too warm?

I have 3 pairs of booties. From the insulated Gore booties, to the Pro Tarmac booites, to the 'Belgian' booties (ie thick socks). I'll pick which fits the weather best. Oh, and keep an eye on chainlove. They're running specials on the Mavic booties with the chemical warmer pocket in em off and on.

Me? I've got a serious case of the screw-its. Its cold (ish), windy, and overcast. Good day to not ride.

An old team I was on, had a Russian guy who rode everywhere, any weather, around Denver Colorado. He used a larger pair of shoes in cold weather, so he could wear thick wool hiking socks. From what I could manage to understand his feet never got cold.
I had been complaining about my feet being numb from the cold on a ride.
He was quite the character too.

You need an insulated, cycling boot. Take a look here and here.
