Yesterday we drove the 7 hours from Denver back to Topeka. The new 75 mph speed limit sure makes the trip quick. I’m not sure why the speed limits in other states aren’t faster. Illinois for example. Other than Chicago, most of that state is pretty rural and the speed limit is 65. Nearly all the states surrounding Kansas have a speed limit of at least 70 mph on interstate highways.
Staying the night with Vincent, Lisa and Pascal is always interesting. Their house is a little like ours, something sort of interesting going on at all times it seems. Jack and Bromont had to say goodbye to each other for a bit. It was a little sad. Lisa injected my finger with some cortisone, so I can put off the $6000+ Vail price, hand surgery for a while. I hope to spend more time in Colorado this season. I miss those guys.
KU was playing their next to last conference basketball game against West Virginia yesterday afternoon. I still have no idea why West Virginia is in the Big 12. It made the time pass pretty quickly.
It is still real winter in Kansas. At least it seems like it because there is a ton of snow on the ground. It is left over from last weeks dumping, so there it must of been pretty ugly here for a few days then. The local training races have already started with Spring Fling Criterium Series yesterday and the Perry Road Races today. Seems early, but I am so out of the loop that last week I could not of told you what day of the week it was or come close to naming the date.
My arm has been getting progressively sorer the last few days. I started taking pain medication again. Just one going to bed and one super early morning. It takes the edge off just enough. I think it is aching so much because of the lack of use. I can’t believe how quickly it is disappearing into nothing. You wouldn’t think that just a little of two weeks of non use of a muscle would do that.
I don’t think I’m going to make it over to Perry to watch the races today, even though it would be nice to get outside. I should go over there and walk a lap. It’s a little over 5 miles. Maybe if I can get a couple hours more sleep, I can gulp down some DayQuil, and head over there for a stroll.
