Hump Day Miscellany – Fitness Rules!

1). Best headline ever Watch your waistline: Fat men have bad sperm

If that doesn’t get a guy to put down the Freedom Fries I don’t know what will. And here’s the best line in the article:

“But experts aren’t sure if that necessarily means obese men face major difficulties having children.”

Let me just clear that up for the experts. The answer would be “yes – yes they do” Between the enormous differential in the length of his bishop vs. his girth and the enormity of his unattractiveness you’ve got to believe that a huge guy getting his seed anywhere near an egg is a bit of an issue. Of course the article doesn’t cover stuff like that. It’s all about sperm count, temperature and fertility but frankly, I think those are non-issues in this case.

2). I finally had the ride I wanted to have today – 16.2 mph average. YES! This is the same ride I kept doing at 13 mph or so last week.

3). The mechanical issue with my bike was a loose skewer in the back that had the wheel crooked in the frame. That just doesn’t work. Eventually it got so crooked it jammed and dumped me on the ground. I’m just glad that happened going uphill, not downhill.


bruise watch – day 6

4). After my oh so fantastic ride today I ran 3 miles. Average pace 9:17. This particular route used to take me 32 or 33 minutes. Today it took me 27.

5). High on cycling and running I chose to go swimming. We did drills and stuff so I don’t think I was all that fast but I led the lane from time to time. I swam 2100 yards in the heat of the day. Bliss.

6). Fitness rules – it really does!

UPDATE:
I almost forget to mention my new favorite fitness blog Mizfit! Go check her out. She is just chock full of great tips and advice and information and runs a very interactive site.

    sock suspenders would lower the chances of a man getting through to my Tulip Fortress. … no matter how tight the tocks are.

    Um…how did you get that picture. I thought I had destroyed them all.

    Glad to know that hard to come by research money is being spent wisely. Reminds me of the Times Magazine shocker, “boys and girls think differently”. Really?! or how about the million dollar study on why milk and cereal go together so well. Really? We spend money on that.

    I am glad that I finished eating my chips already. Eww!

    On another topic, congrats on your ride.

    And another topic, thanks for the root beer float idea to get YaYa enthusiastic about riding his bike while I ran. It worked and I have pictures to prove it (post coming soon).

    thanks!

    That was some pretty astute analysis there on the chances of those guys getting anything close to a prodigy.
    Bruise pics need a little better focus so we can see capillary damage at its fullest.

    Training rocks when it’s rolling.
