Slacking off in Tuscon

Hello Speed Theory team mates. I joined the team the other day and thought I should post something.... just 'cause.
Some of you know my brother Stephen who is currently lounging about in Tuscon. Yes, he'll have you believe that he is working and racing his a$$ off in horrific temperatures, suffering immeasurable pain and enduring all sorts of indignities. When in fact, I have a satellite pointed at his house and he and the rest of these "racers" are actually sitting by the pool with girly drinks, complete with umbrellas, watching the cactus grow.

If the weather holds here, I am outside riding this Saturday. Leaving my house at 11:00 am if anyone is interested. Maybe do 50 or 60km easy tempo. We can meet at Westhills Second cup at 11:15.

Let me know if anyone is coming so I don't leave without you. Looking forward to riding with you this years.

Tom

Hey Tom, I'm ST newbie too. I was planning riding on Saturday as well. Might have another ST newbie to join in for the ride. Could be an early Feb cat5 throw down. Any other takers?

To bad we don't have any kit yet.

What is your weather threshold?

Tom 'Chicken Legs' Kenny said...

I'm good at plus 5 or greater. I don't mind riding in colder weather but it's early and I'm a bit of a pansy. If the weather is poor, I'll do an hour or so in the garage. You're welcome to join in there too.

Thomas said...

Yeah +5 is about my threshold.

AAR said...

Yet another newbie planning to join you guys.

mikehealy said...

I'll join you as well unless Friday's weather has a lasting effect on the roads.

Darcy G said...

Me and a friend will meet y'all at 11:15 at Westhills Second Cup.

Tom 'Chicken Legs' Kenny said...

The weather looks like it can go either way. Depends on how much snow falls and melts.
Keep your eyes peeled on the blog. I'll post first thing saturday morning.
If we're not outside, we're inside in the gargae.

Guys,

I'll put my name in the interested to ride list. Rode or garage, don't care.

What is the address for the garage and will you be serving recovery drinks with umbrellas in them?

Tom 'Chicken Legs' Kenny said...

It doesn't look promising for outside but we'll call it at the last minute. Come prepared for either inside or out.

My address is 5844 Lodge Cr. S.W.
If you get lost call 287-8287

Any plan on the workout? I did one of the sprint workouts this morning so I am good for some big gear stuff.

We could have a Cat 5 throw down on the trainers. Sprints between swear words, or not.

If Mr. Healy is thinking of coming, is he going to bring his running shoes for a light run afterwords?

The flurries have moved through, tomorrow sunny and 6 degrees, just about perfect for a ride to Bragg Creek. Let's see in the morning.

Dan Sigouin said...

I'll watch the blog and let you guys decide, I'm game either way.

Mike, I'll bring my running shoes in case you want to get a half hour recovery run in afterwords.

Make sure you guys post where we are starting, it takes me sometime to get across to your side of town, coming from Arbour Lake.

Tom 'Chicken Legs' Kenny said...

OK, Let's meet at my house at 11:00 and decide then.
I'll have a work out ready if we're in the garage.

Darcy G said...

My trainer's at the Olympic Oval, so if the consensus is to ride inside then I'll have to pass. Could we make a call by 9:30 am at the latest?

Tom 'Chicken Legs' Kenny said...

I have a spare trainer Darcy.

Darcy G said...

Tom,

Great! We'll see you at 11:00. BTW, It's just me now.

Darcy

Are you guys still planning on meeting at Second cup at 11:15?

Looks to be a little chilly around 11:00 but warming up fast.

Tom 'Chicken Legs' Kenny said...

Currently looks a bit chilly. Meet at my house at 11:00 bring both indoor and outdoor gear. see note above for address

Thomas said...

Aryeh and I are stir crazy and have cabin fever so we have decided to wait an hour till it warms up a bit.

We are meeting at the bottom of Edworthy hill at 12:00 and making our way out to Bragg from there.

Dan Sigouin said...

Tom,

I'm coming with my trainer, outdoor gear, indoor gear, running gear. I'll have my iPhone see we can listen to 7 gigs of death metal if we are inside, that might be enough motivation to go outside. Not many people like my taste in music!

See you at 11:00.

Your address is Lodge Crescent just off of 37th St., correct?

mikehealy said...

My plans are to leave my house on the bike around 11:15 AM. Head towards intersection of Lower Springbank road and Hwy 8, wait a few minutes to see if you guys from Tom's house decide to ride outside, if I don't see you then head west on Lower Springbank to 22 and on to Bragg. Thomas, I'll have ST jacket on, hope to see you on the road. Can't muster up the energy to load everything into my car and head into town.

Thomas said...

Yeah Mike we'll probably see you on your way back into town. Do you take highway 8 back or lower springbank?
