Lazy and Unmotivated

My butt has graced the saddles of my bikes very little this year. Last year I was riding 100-200 miles a week and doing at least two rallies a month. This year, I’ve been sitting my ass on the couch instead of on the saddle. I’ve done only one rally this summer, and I’ve put in a pitiful amount of base miles. All motivation has fled this year. This happens from time to time, and I find that buying a new gadget for the bike helps get me back in the saddle. Sometimes I get new pedals or some overpriced piece of titanium or carbon. This time, I decided to get a new cyclocomputer. Being the gadget fiend that I am, I’ve gone through many bike computers, heart rate monitors, and watches. My current rig is a Polar S720i. There’s nothing wrong with it, and I’ll still use it for its heart rate features, but I want something shiny and new. So, I just ordered a Cateye CC-CD300DW. Let’s see if it gets me back on the bike for awhile. It should be delivered in time for me to take it for a test ride at the Hotter’N Hell Hundred on the 28th.
