After one of the better rides I had in a while I had much difficulty going to sleep last night. My legs never got comfortable in bed, and this morning I woke up with a stiff lower back. My back shouldn’t be an issue today, I just need to be cognizant that I am not the limber man I normally am. I need to take heed of my body so that I can do my two long rides on Saturday and Sunday in Hartwell. I will be riding the sixty-mile course on Saturday, and if all goes well the 59-mile course on Sunday. I can recover Monday at the Peachtree Bikes Recovery Ride.
As has become the norm when I arrive home, past 9:00pm, after a post-work bike ride, I cooked up some frozen meatballs and sauce for a late dinner. With dinner last night I drank water. What? Yes, water. I also treated myself with a mini Lärabar and a large glass of milk for dessert. Milk? Yes, milk.
Losing Track Of The Giro d’Italia
My DVR at work has stopped recording the nightly recap show, so I’ve lost touch with the action in Italy. I have today’s stage playing on my TV in the office, so I’m trying to catch up.
Haircut And Preparation Tonight
After work tonight I will be getting a haircut. I was also hoping to wedge my way into the ITP-Reader Stacy’s plan of going to Dad’s Garage, but the timing didn’t work out for me.
Instead I am going to treat myself to a dinner out after my haircut, and then head straight home to gather all of the things I need to bring with me for this weekend’s two days of cycling.
Have to run to a meeting… Have a great day friends!
