First, here’s how it went down…
Plan A – 60 mile bike ride
Plan B – 90 minute trainer ride/core/strength circuit at home (due to forecast)
Plan C – HOLY crap, it’s sunny out and no rain, no rain, no rain, where are my shoes, where’s my helmet, huurrrrry, go, go, go, get out the door.
I opted for Plan C. Plan A wasn’t going to happen, not enough time today AND the wind. If I went with Plan A, it may have taken me four hours, I swear. So, I made the best of Plan C, got in a very difficult (read: windy uphill both ways) kind of ride. The kind of ride where you’re working really hard, you’re on a false flat, you look down and you see a 14. WTF?!?! 14, seriously, I can’t catch my breath and I’m going 14mph. THEN you hit a downhill and you max out at 18mph. Yeah, the wind can SUCK IT. HOWEVER, it was, hands down, better than riding inside, any day.
Random Bike Thoughts
I freak out whenever I see a Chester the Molester van drive by – the utility van with no windows. I am certain they are trolling for me.
I swear, they could bury me over there and no one would know.
When the turkey vulchers are swarming around for something good, ripe and dead, are they just waiting for me to keel over?
I really DID just need new bike shorts. These feel really nice on my bum and cooter bone. Thank gawd!
How the hell am I going to make it through Triple T? I’m scared.
I hate it when people/cyclists throw their banana peels in the shoulder. I still gotta ride through your crap – can you not give it a little distance?
How does someone lose a shoe on a main road where people are not walking? I mean, not a pair, just one shoe.
Why do I like to eat ice cream and Girl Scout Cookies OR drink beer during the Biggest Loser? I DO love to watch big people shrink. I can’t help it, it’s amazing.
What would I do if I won the lotto? I would have a man servant, that’s what I would do. Someone to have my shit done and ready at all times. Grocery shopping done, food cooked, bike cleaned and aired up….all of it.
And now it’s time to hit the track for a fun morning of…whatever coach has in store…before the hail hits!
