Inspired by the TdF riders, or perhaps my desire to actually lose weight I have been on my bike the last three days, riding 26 miles, 31 miles, and 25 miles respectively. While it has felt really good to be out riding again the humidity has posed some challenges. Right now I am sitting in front of a desk fan blowing directly on me in order to dry out, and this is after I’ve taken a shower. Ugh. Of course as soon as the weather turns chilly I’ll whine about that too. 😉
Tomorrow will be a mandatory rest day because it’s German Class day and I have to get an early start at work so I can leave work early.
Atlanta, Where The Wild Things Are
On Saturday’s ride I saw a snake, this morning I saw a doe. Both times I was inside the perimeter in the Mount Paran / Harris Trail area.
On Saturday I was in my Ireland jersey; the snake seemed unfazed by this, perhaps it knew my name wasn’t Patrick?
Thinking About The Coming Cold
This is usually the time of year when I would sign up for late-Fall, early-Winter events forgetting that by the time the event arrives the weather will be drastically different.
I’m also trying to figure out how I can cycle train this Winter. I’ve never gotten my trainer back from Little Willie (I think he’s had it for three years now) and I’m trying to decide if I should purchase another trainer or perhaps a Spinning-style stationary bike. I know my aversion to cold, I shall not want to be outside riding even with the appropriate winter gear.
I Almost Went Hashing Yesterday
Had I planned my day better I could have gone to the Black Sheep Hash. I really wanted to go because it was the annual Lions Run, and because I haven’t been hashing since last September, and I need to start getting some hashing/running in before going to Portland for InterAmericas Hash on Labor Day weekend. Perhaps in two weeks time…
Okay, gotta run, cycle, um, go. Hope your weekend was great.
