Highlight of the day: I ordered a new road bike today. A Tarmac Expert. I am pretty stoked, it's the first carbon road bike I've ever had, and it's also the first new road bike I've ever had. My previous bike was a Frankenstein affair that I cobbled together out of ebay parts and mail order discounts. It was a decent bike, but tooth-chippingly stiff and aggressive. I spent all last season on Jeff's Cervelo Soloist, which was a nicer bike but offered the same ride characteristics as my '01 Allez-Frankenbike. Having done a few rides on a Roubaix Demo Bike in the past couple weeks, I opted for the slightly more agressive geometery and stiffer frame of the Tarmac. It's a compromise of sorts. So stoked.
I was on track to be in the 170's today but it was not to be. I still had a loss, but it didn't dip quite as low as I was hoping. After prison lunch and more lifting than cardio today, we'll see. Hopefully it will be a St. Patrick's Day Miracle and I'll wake up in the morning to those blessed numbers "179.9" Because either way, I will be fatter on Friday than I am tomorrow morning.
