Back in the saddle...

"To cast off sloth now well behooves you. For resting upon soft down, or underneath the blankets cloth, is not how fame is won—without which, one spends life to leave behind as vestige of himself on earth the sign smoke leaves on air, or foam on water. So stand and overcome your panting—with the soul, which wins all battles if it does not despond under its heavy body's weight...If you understand me, come: act now, to profit yourself"
-Spoken by Virgil to Dante in the 8th circle of Hell

So I'm nearly over my illness and really need to get back on the bike. It always amazes me at how much more productive I am when riding, and that is in all my efforts, personal, academic and cycling. I hit the trainer for an hour tonight, and I'm sure to piss off the neighbors with the racket that my old P.O.S. mag trainer makes. Perhaps the rollers are a better option. Hopefully the weather will cooperate tomorrow and i'll be able to get a few hours in.
