The lemming is tapering this week. A normal taper should include a reduction in blogging volume, while maintaining a small level of blogging intensity. Since I’m not a sandbagger but really just lazy, you’re getting this single blog of short duration and medium intensity.
Next week is RAGBRAI, the great bike ride across Iowa. As far as I can tell, I don't have any readers who are headed off to this unassuming little state, but if I did that would be stellar. Myself, I'm thinking about heading there and winning a few stages. Of course winning a stage at RAGBRAI is not like winning a stage in the MS150, winning a stage at RAGBRAI entails drinking lots of good beer in non-suspecting small town bars along the route. Of course, the task would be much more difficult had Team Good Beer not completed the arduous task of compiling the list and sampling bars.
So wherever you are headed this next week, be safe out there. I may find some energy during my taper if I carbo-load well enough to put up a Friday fun post tomorrow, if not I'll see you July 27th when normal blog training continues.
