An armless Jimmy Fallon goes biking, or something. (Project 190, Day Thirty-Two)

Today's workout didn't really feel like working out.

I didn't do it first thing in the morning; I had to get up early to get on the road early to get to a trial that started early --

we won, so I am something like 20 for 21 in the last month or so

-- and I knew I'd be back from that by about twelve, so I decided that I'd then go do a workout after that before doing some work from home, and as a result, I got to the health club about 12:30 and did some biking on the reclining bike for 30 minutes, while I read (among other things) the short story Armless Maidens of the American West, which is a very good short story, the kind of story that creeps up on you and only after you're done reading it do you start to realize how creepy it is, really.

And what's notable about that, too, is that I remembered hearing about the story but hadn't saved the link so I decided to try to find it while I biked, and I googled what I remembered about it which was:

A. That it was about armless
B.  Women and
C.  Was in a magazine.

So I googled Armless Woman Magazine because that was the best lead I had, and it turns out that there are lots of links related to armless women, some of them inspirational, some of them weird, none of them really the story I was looking for.

But I found the story and I finished biking, but I think I'm going to have to up the levels again because as I began with, the exercise didn't feel all that much like exercise today.

Now I am going to take Mr Bunches and Mr F to the big pool.

Today's workout: Biking, level 2, 30:00.
Latest Weight: 253.
Today's song that I listened to while typing this because I can't remember what I listened to while biking, really, the 30 minutes just whizzed right by and I can hardly remember them even though it was only, like, 4 hours ago:

Streamline, Newton

Is that some weird fetish thing?

I probably would have thrown in 'short story' into that mix of terms for your search engine. But hey, it looks like you found it without my help.
