That is a sound of frustration that I really made when I had to turn around on my ride today. My legs still feel like (as my friend Adam would say) “regurgitated dog shit.” Sometimes you have to know when to call it quits, and that is what I should have done at Gila. Now I’m trying to get out of this massive hole I have dug myself. At least I took pretty pictures and the light was awesome on the ride. It turned into a 1 hour spin, and the leaves just looked so green. Since I manage to overtrain myself every spring, and I’m sick of being frustrated and confused, I am getting a coach. I met one that I truly feel I can trust and that is a huge deal for me. I’m a skeptical engineer. More on that later.
I ran into Adam on my ride today. I have known him for 5 years now and the man has always had the dirtiest bike I have seen. Today was no exception.
In case you don’t know, the frame is supposed to be black…..
At least he was riding a Cannondale Scalpel. That makes him the coolest person ever in my book. 😉 It’s always a pleasant surprise to run into friends. Boulder is small, so don’t make too many enemies…especially ones that ride bikes. Some days I run into 5 or 6 people. After feeling so sorry for Adam’s bike, I got home from my short ride and gave it a nice cleaning. It’s sparkly and happy now…if only my legs felt the same! I am headed to Dallas tomorrow, so 3 days off. I am keeping my fingers crossed, hoping that I feel like a rock star on my ride on Monday, or I’m in a heap of trouble for Angel Fire MSC next weekend…
Till next time!
