Doing The Happy Dance (Whatever that is)
Got to ride outside today. (insert Berry White voice) Ohhhhhh Yeahhhhhhhh Baby...
B-Man was spending some of the afternoon with Papa-'O, so with temps in the 50's and a chance of rain I decided to chamois up and try out some of the local roads I found last week that are out of reach of the crack dealing thugs that call the White Oak/McKeesport area home.
Mucho hills and the quads were still burning from Monday's weights. Founds some other roads combined to make a lap and a half pretzel type route that put me at 33 miles in just slightly over 2 hours. I got rained on a bit and some of the flats in the valleys near the creeks where pretty chilly but 2 hours of chilly monkey but action beats 2 hours at the gym any day. Although there was no opportunity to spy hot chicks on the thigh machine (oh yeah, like you don't look!).
A road ride in December in the Pittsburgh area is like a gift from bike gods. I will be sacraficing a live chain covered in the "blood" of a virgin bottle of Tri-Flow later tonight in thanks.
Spooked a chick on a horse near Round Hill Park. On trails I always give warnign etc., but I figured if the horse is used to 18 wheelers coming past SURELY it would be used to a knob on a bike. I was wrong. Felt bad.
Not sure what tomorrow holds. Might take the day off. Might go to the gym in the eveing. Not sure.
Time to eat.
