The Solo Training ride

The Solo Training Ride

The task spreads out before me like molasses poured onto a tabletop, indulging in its viscous immensity. Its growing breadth makes it a kind of enigma, the sort distinguished by an elusive end and therefor an intangible beginning. It occurs to me, at this moment, that the difference between those who achieve and those who stagnate is not measured by their greatness, but by their courage to begin. There is a boldness in embarking on that to which the end is unknown, to trust in your ability to navigate a path along which the way can be felt more than it can be seen.

In life, our path is fractured by the paths of those in our social and professional proximity. In training, we are simply a product of our discipline and will. In a world full of change and flux, training stands out as a beautifully simple thing. Time in the saddle goes in one end, and progress comes out the other. The magnitude of the change we see as a result is directly proportional to our commitment to a goal; there is nowhere to to seek answers to our failures but inside ourselves.

Just cant be put any better for a cyclist by a cyclist. Simply the essence of training.The entire post is nice read.

Carrier Unlocking the iPhone

It’s been almost a fortnight since I unlocked my phone, boy am I not happy with my phone? I am completely delighted and loving the iPhone even more now that it is unlocked. I am a nerd and I did enjoy the jail breaking and it’s benefits. But it was always a pain in the butt to wait for a new feature on the OS update that Apple offered and I just couldn’t update to it since I had to wait for the jail break for it, and even if one is available you just got to find if its untethered etc. I just didn’t enjoy the wait at all. Its a pain for a nerd like me who wants to keep trying new things all the time, trying to live on the edge.

Earlier when the permanent unlock was offered during the iPhone 4 days I wasn’t sure if it would work and besides the price was really high. Now that there’s a ton of competition out there in the market for permanent unlocking, the prices are a bit reasonable. I liked how my phone was unlocked at official iPhone unlock, I decided to spread the happiness 🙂

The website is run by a bunch of professionals and I could vouch on it by the process they follow.

First you just select the phone model and your phone’s carrier(the one the iPhone is locked to) , then you type your iPhone’s IMEI number and add it to Cart and just give all the mandatory details like email name etc at checkout.

You instantly receive an email notification of buying the unlock, then another email asking you to verify your card. Once the verification is done, the status of your unlock is updated online. You can keep a track of it online. As soon as the unlock goes through, you do get a confirmation email.

Once you get the confirmation mail you just connect your iPhone to iTunes and your phone is unlocked. If you don’t get success instantly just update your iOS or re-install iOS and it definitely will get unlocked.

The entire process is so simple and easy and done professionally, I definitely would recommend them for your iPhone if you need to unlock it. My iPhone 4 got unlocked in about 8 hours since it was locked to AT&T. Different carriers might take different time to unlock your phone, so please be patient and don’t fire me here.

Have Fun Unlocking it!

Being legend!

Being legend

Jens voigt, 40 years of age may be he hasnt won the tours , but has won millions of hearts for his attitude on the bike . Look at him go here about his ride where he finished 3rd  amongst a lot of 20 year olds.  “When he caught me, oh wow, I had lactic acid coming out of my ears! Voeckler was clearly fresher and stronger and there was nothing I could do about it. Even my fingertips were hurting. It had been a long time since I hurt like that”.If it was not for his love for the sport and attitude on the bike, why else would he be a legend . Bravo!
