Big Decision…

Posted in Random Stuff with tags , , , , on April 28, 2010 by brianestover

Woke up at 5:16 to go ride. My eyes were gooped up, my nose was boogered over, my breathing was ragged and wheezy. I think I got hit by allergies. I’ve been taking Claritin 10mg QD and/or BID depending upon the day to prevent allergies, but Claritin is such a weak antihistamine combined with a horrible season. I think it just overpowered the antihistamine. A puff on my Xopenex inhaler, a few good blows of the nose and I’m feeling somewhat better. Stuffy still but at least my breathing isn’t wheezy. Time to go the the pharmacy and grab some Zyrtec.

But the big decision arose when I opened the fridge. My milk supply is low. Very low. What to do? After fretting for about :06 seconds, I chose to use the milk for my morning cups of tea and I’ll go to Paco’s for a #2 breakfast burrito and a medium Pepsi. I love the yummy goodness that the bacon, egg, cheese and potato breakfast burrito is. Drip some red sauce on it before every bite = Super Delicious. It deserves a capital letter because it’s that freaking good.

Then I started to feel bad for you 10 readers that live elsewhere besides along the Mexican border. You just can’t find tasty goodness like the #2 breakfast burrito in say ND, or Ontario or Walla Walla. I feel bad for you guys, missing out on the wholesome goodness of Paco’s. I’ve had burritos from several places in CA, other places in Tucson, Phoenix and even Yuma. None of them can hold a candle to Paco’s. So why you suckers are eating cereal, or your English muffin with peanut butter on it, or trying to choke down some high fiber wheat cereal, I’ll be sipping a Pepsi and munching on the tastiest breakfast burrito this side of the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy…if you can.

New TT Rig

Posted in Random Stuff with tags , , , , , , , on March 25, 2009 by brianestover

With a race this Sunday and following Saturday, it seems time to figure out what to do about my TT bike situation.  Thankfully this was in stock, in my size yesterday at  So now all I have to do is swap over the SRM, swap seats, lengthen the handlebars, probably need to stick a longer stem on it as well, add a water bottle cage, figure out where a second one goes for a long course race, put on the pedals and then dial in the fit.  It’s Wednesday evening, not going to do anything to it today, so it’s getting sketchy and rather close to Sunday.  I’ll copy my Lucero position on it and away I’ll go (hopefully).

Making matters worse, I got food poisoning.  Ended up losing about 3.5kg and I’ve been feeling woozy and lightheaded since Sunday.  At least today the lightheaded part went away, but solid foods = not appealing.  Those who know me, already know I’m not a big fan of food, I think it’s mainly over-rated. 

So other then having a bike that is not dialed in, feeling rather unfit, haven’t worked out since Saturday afternoon, having multiple bouts of unplanned ab work, and a stomach that still doesn’t feel right, things seem to be spot on for a good race on Sunday.
