Road trip numero 2 for the season is about to commence! Mr. Kerkove started the loooong drive today. I originally planned on going with him, but I got slammed at work and needed the extra two days. I’m flying out tomorrow night.
Yesterday was an amazing massage from Reed McCalvin. Massages play a huge roll in recovery for me. I have been getting about one a month, and they make me feel much better and also prevent injury. I wish I could get one every day! haha Reed is also very knowledgeable about many physiology related issues such as good supplements to take, stretching, and other factors that play a role in recovery.
I did an easy spin today to keep the legs open. Tomorrow is work and travel, and Thursday I get to the venue at Sea Otter! I can’t wait! Stay tuned, I’ll be updating a lot at the race. I am excited to meet lots of new and old friends!!
Some pretty sights from my ride:
New cycling shoes!!! Yeah! Northwave is our shoe sponsor. These are carbon soled and suh-weet! I think we are getting some with team colors too! I’ll be doing some short write-ups on all my awesome new team schwag! I got my sunglasses and helmet too, but I sent those with Jeff so you have to wait for pics. They rock. I still haven’t gotten my kit…. I know I’ll have them by the time I get back from my trip.
