Yesterday ended up being pretty busy which between that, pulled shoulder, sore legs, and rain; well… bummed but I did get a bit done. I remodeled the website with this new kick butt look, I managed to finally get our Official domain name “MattyAndAnnika.Life” as the web address. New site icon added which I had been needing to do since I made the new emoticons, a lot of stuff that was on the back burner got taken care of yesterday so it turned out quite nice.
It was a bad software and computer day, to say the least, every software including Discord kept crashing or going offline; so it was a day of nothing working right or something not working at all when ya needed it. After a rather long morning of getting the sites new look up and running, I then started preparing the alternative means for the 24-hour stream on Twitch December 15th, 2018.
We’ve decided that if Twitch can’t stay online then I will just continue to ride and everyone can see the stats the next morning, also those with Zwift can go into Zwift and see me riding also; so one way or another people interested or supporting can keep up with it.
Over this week I will be slowing the workout a bit on my legs so that I’m ready for Saturday, however, Annika gets her new bike Monday so I’m certain we will be doing some riding just not as hardcore. She is so excited and can’t wait to ride her new Salsa Journeyman Sora 650 and I can’t stop daydreaming about ordering my up and coming new bike the Surly Pugsley. I’ve even debated selling my road bike to grab the Pugsley soon cause I know once I get it I’ll ride a few centuries on it just to get used to it.
I understand that the Surly Pugsley weighs between 35-40 pounds not counting any gear on it, talk about a leg workout with every turn of the pedal; I’m excited. The thought of climbing super hills on this monster of a FatBike just makes me ready to ride. I’m a climber and a heavy bike just makes it more fun, it’ll be like pedaling a tank; and the noise it will produce when flying downhill will sound like a swarm of bees. Epic!
Today I’m going out to ride with John since the rain is no longer in our area and we aim to do Fountain Hills since we couldn’t yesterday. After the bike ride, I will be working on some other tech stuff and clearing some clutter in our house to be able to work towards the bike room extension. We’re moving our Gym into our Living and Office space and moving our Office into the Gym, this was we have double the room for more bikes. I also need to do some stretches to get my shoulder to stop hurting, so much to do lately but it’s all working out. With the holidays around the corner, it’ll be more family time and more chill time till January 1st, 2019 when I start my 25,000-mile bike ride goal for the year 2019. So yes on January 1st it’ll be my first 120 mile minimum on my bike, woohoo 2019 is gonna be a super filled bike ride year.
Alright, it’s time to get the day rolling; oh before I forget…
