All Work and No Play Makes Jack a Slow Boy

To bastardize a famous movie line, "All work and no play makes Jack a slow boy." Right now, I am very slow. Long week after long week at work has left little time for riding or sleep and now I am paying for it.

Today was cold, windy and threatening rain, so we headed to El Sereno to do our usual foul weather ride. This translates into a long hill climb made a bit more difficult of soft trails in several segments. The long hours at work have drained all the stamina I used to have and replaced it with a coffee habit. I struggled up the hill even after telling the others to ride on ahead. I kept going, but at an embarassingly slow pace. I suppose there is no way to recover other than doing this, but doing it once a week serves to highlight the problem rather than help cure it.

Don broke his Gravity Dropper today. He was "just riding around" (really!) when he snapped the seatpost on a small berm. He has done this before without a problem and it really wasn't a big deal. It was on the uphill part of the berm, so it definitely wasn't due to a landing impact. He had to ride the rest of the way down the hill standing. This is the second time he has snapped a Gravity Dropper post. They were good about fixing it last time, but this is concerning in terms of safety both when it occurs and on the ride back.
