Saturday was a nice September day, temperatures around 80° F, low humidity, mild breezes, so I went for a ride on the W&OD.
Started at Herndon Station (20 mile marker), planning to go 40 miles. At the 40 mile marker I thought "It's only another 5 miles to Purcellville. Why not?" Finished both water bottles by Purcellville, so I refilled them and headed back. By Ashburn I was really feeling it, and was almost out of water. Got back to the car and then spent half an hour driving home. So I rode 50 miles, then promptly sat down for half an hour. It hurt to breathe, much less walk, so the first thing I did after unloading the car was 800mg of motrin washed down with lots of water. Followed by more water. I had been planning to cook myself some dinner but, well, was way to beat for that. So I went to the Indian place around the corner, sister to the one in Bethesda where we went for the HusiMeet there.
Had the lamb vindaloo which was very spicy, the way I like it, and not toned down like in Bethesda, with a side of yogurt sauce (raita, I think). Figured that should help rebalance the electrolytes. The vindaloo also encouraged drinking more water. Followed by ice cream.
Weight now dropping below 205 jeebus loving pounds, but not quite down to 200 yet. Will still need to buy all new wetsuits for surfing next summer. If I surf.
Everybody's favorite subject, at least here in DC:
This, in a nutshell, is the White House’s problem: The American public believes the intelligence. They just don’t care. They don’t believe Syria poses a threat to the United States. They don’t believe the U.S.’s national interests are served by getting involved in Syria.
No, not the NSA, the Nigerian Email Scammers:
Their strategies include collaboration with security agents and bank officials, local and international networking, and the use of voodoo
