a good workout tonight. did my 10 mile mtb route, and cut four minutes off the time. the nordictrack is working wonders for total body stamina. recovery times are amazing. in the past, i've usually emphasized strength over aerobic fitness ... but now that's been
thrown awry. i've got much more *usable* energy and strength doing it this way.

taoism over zen. this morning, i got up, showered, ate breakfast, walked into my office. turned on the ceiling fan. turned on the computers. then, saw a spider on the ceiling. i hate spiders. can't stand 'em. so, concentrating totally on the spider, i stand up on a chair, and *wham* ... get knocked silly by the ceiling fan. taoism urges you to remain in the world, while zen asks you to concentrate on a single point. i was zen this morning, and got a whack on the head for my troubles. [stupid, stupid, stupid.] when you least expect it, you're on the front lines for the next 'darwin award' ...
jeesh, i'm tired. got two more proposals to do today.
