If you are a regular reader of the Get of the Couch blog, you are probably asking, Dude, where have you been? Why no blogging?
The answer is simple, I don't have anything to share. I am nursing a injury/infection and haven't done anything. Just a couch potato. Well, I have done some Z but that's it! I am ready and willing to train but the consequences are too high and would result in more time away. So here I sit.
If you are looking for some motivation, here is the stuff I've been reading about:
The Iditarod Trail Invitational is underway and Jill Homer has completed here quest. She completed the 350 mile arctic ride from Anchorage to McGrath, AK in just over 6 days. On another note, the actual Iditarod dog sled race began today.
In the kettlebell world, the most recent challenge is doing 1000 swings in less than an hour. Tracy Rif did it in 50 min. David Whitley also did this feat with 32k in 54 min.
The medals for completing last August's 1200K Paris-Brest-Paris brevet are arriving. Mike Dayton shows a nice picture. This looks like something to go for in 3.5 years!
Adam Glass is bending and tearing more crazy objects. Dude is strong.
I certainly won't bore you with the soap opera that has been happening with the DCR.
On a lighter note, Yehuda Moon and the Kickstand Cyclery is a great cycling comic strip.
