We broke it !

Wednesday, 5 December

About 3/10 of a mile from the finish of my 10K TT (how's that for mixing units of measure?) at CycleU tonight, the CompuTrainer system broke. The clock kept running, but the program stopped measuring distance, watts, and other critical data. O.A.D. and one other guy had finished; the rest of us, of course, were on pace for PR times--and you'll never be able to disprove that! :)

Before our little spin at Sand Point, I did my first holiday "baking" of the season. I'm not sure it's baking when the only thing that happened in the oven was toasting the almonds. But the end result is luscious: chocolate almond toffee. It's further proof that you can combine butter and sugar with most anything (chocolate and almonds, in this case) and have a tasty result. This is reserved for "hostess gifts" for the holiday season (not everybody gets hats!), so we definitely have to keep our hands out of the cookie tin (as if 3/4 of a pound of butter wasn't reason enough)!

Sooooooo tasty.....of course I had to taste test to make sure it was okay to give away. :)

What? The system pooped out? I thought I had finished! :-)

Oh... I got the blog up and running now. Yipeee!

Nice job last night by the way!

Greg killed the system when he was trying desperately to catch you there at the finish. Where's your blog? :)

I think it was my unbelievable 140 watts that brought the Computrainers down :)
