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.
