    Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

      Thanks Holly.

       

      I'm in again with my continued use of Slo's No Plan training plan. Seems to work so far.

          I always wondered exactly what 40/40 meant. Maybe I'll have to start a 60/20 thread. Hey, it adds up to the same number! Big grin

            Had one of those weeks where I needed less on my schedule, and more time with family, so I skipped most of the week's miles.  Decided to cruise on into 2013 nice and easy.
