After dragging myself out of bed this morning, my day started off just right after making some chocolate chip pancakes, eggs, and coffee this AM. Then I ate Frosted Flakes, bacon, orange juice, an apple struedel, a baby squirrel courtesy of the ones outside my window, an ostrich beak… ok. Not really. Just the first part.
Carnizzle, one of my favorite riding pals. Yeah, I am pretty lucky to have ridden with hotties all week long.
After the snow yesterday, it was awesome to be greeted with temps in the 60s. I even took off my knee warmers!
My legs felt way better than yesterday. I spent the first 2.5 hours (Heil, Picture Rock,and the Hall climb/lollipop) pegging it at or above LT.
It went well, but I had to chill out in Z2/Z3 for awhile on the way back to Picture Rock – just in time to pin it in mid zone 5 (196 bpm) for the climb. We rode Ponderosa Trail back to Wapiti Trail, and then to the car. I am happy to say that my body is coming around and I can’t wait for the Ouachita!
The Rotwild kicks ass on the rocks.
Jeff and I went to see Watchmen this evening. It was definitely entertaining. Any time I see an action flick, I want to learn kung fu or something.
That’s all for now… I’ll be pushing it pretty hard the next couple of days before Jeff and I leave for the Seattle Bike Show on Friday.
