Shut Up, Legs! The Wisdom of Jens Voigt

First, just let me say: 4 months until Christmas.

A few diabetes links:
  • Affect of Exercise on Diabetes, Limited Effectiveness of Snapshot Testing: new study
  • Insulin Pumps Affected by changes of Airplane Cabin Pressure. report
  • Insulin pumps vulnerable to hacking demo

This is a tremendous August for bicyling.

Rode 36 miles today, McDonald out to the horse farm, with a stop at trailside Farmhouse Coffee, which is always a pleasant respite.

Today's ride was harder than it should have been. My quads were complaining and protesting even thought it wasn't a challenging ride or pace. I needed the wisdom of Jens Voigt, who famously tells his legs: "shut up, legs!". This is why Jens Voigt can watch "60 Minutes" in twenty minutes.

BTW, so far this year: 2981 miles.
