Ok enough of the nervous writing/venting. Yesterday Mother Nature once again pulled my chain. After some strong storms and dark clouds rolled through most of the day I cancelled the ride that I was planning on doing. Even as I drove home it was still raining in spots and looking dark. About a ½ hour later I look out the window and what do I see the sun. frickidy frick Yes it was poking through some clouds. I’m like great this would have been perfect for a ride. As to not waste the improving weather I slipped on the Asics and headed out for a run. After racing over the weekend and running the day before I wasn’t sure how the legs were going to respond. 7 miles later I was still going strong as I finally made my way home. I was pretty impressed that the legs held up so well and continued to turn out a good stride the entire time.
This morning I was up early to get in something of a ride before work. The streets were empty as I made my way through the cool air. I haven’t ridden in the morning for quite some time and I forgot how nippy it can be. Luckily after a few miles I had warmed up and hammered on the pedals as best I could. After the run the night before my legs were a little heavy, but they didn’t complain too much. With the time crunch I was out for just under and hour, but it felt good to get the legs moving again. They’ll have a day or two off before their next tour so they should be ready to grind out some long miles this weekend.
For those who were interested below is the Tritini recipe that Bridget, Jaime, and Jackie came up with. I didn’t get to sample it myself, but I heard good things. If nothing else the name kicks a$$. Have a good one folks…
