Monday and Tuesday are usually my days to work full days at the office and recover from the past weeks efforts.
Sunday, my friend Leslie and I made dinner with lots of assorted fruits and veggies. It was so delish. A little fun with photography. I just have my cheap Olympus 7 megapixel camera that is tough. It’s been dropped while riding, rained on, gotten sweaty in my pocket, you name it. It is old reliable. Someday though, I hope to have one of these cameras. Man, they are so badass. However, they could not go on rides with me.
I left out the “fun” photos… 😉
Monday, I went to Core Power Yoga . It’s the only yoga where I don’t get bored and feel like I am getting a workout. I went a lot last winter and stopped for various reasons, but am ready to get back into it. One thing I didn’t like was that we spent like 5 minutes singing Hindu chants. That’s the only time it’s happened. Ok, I am paying good money to get my ass kicked, not to try not to laugh while chanting “om, hari krishna.” I think Hinduism is cool and stuff, but I pay good money to get my butt kicked, not to join the choir. That said, I can appreciate the “spiritual” factor of yoga and I do like it, but I just don’t want to sing while I should be trying to balance in some crazy pose where I am trying to wrap my limbs where they won’t go.
Today was a 1.5 hour ride. Man, it’s been unseasonably warm here setting record highs. It has been 70. Yes, 70. I am sorry for all of you stuck in the cold. That will be me in no time, I am sure. For now, I will enjoy it. However, there is an opportunity cost associated with warm weather. It’s the wind… 20-30 mph constant wind is almost guaranteed with temps over 50 in the winter/spring. I did an easy recovery spin on the road bike which was good b/c my hamstrings are really sore from yoga.
and bare legs. Spring is coming and daylight savings is this weekend. I can’t wait to see the leaves and flowers starting to peak and bud on the trees, feel the crisp air turn warm, and watch the light change. The mountains and aspens that have been resting all winter will suddenly come to life. I have been hearing the birds chirping in the morning too. I laid in bed for 10 minutes this weekend listening to them.
Tomorrow will be another 4 hour mountain bike ride. I will do the same ride as I did last week at Heil Ranch/Picture Rock. I can’t wait!
