Going Longish With My Back
Back felt about 80% today. Too nice not to ride though. Wifey stepped up her massage technique and used some Freeze It on it too. So I figured I'd roll 2 hours on the road and if the back started to loosen up I'd do 4. It did loosen up and I rolled 65 miles in a little over 4 hours. I didn't have the mobility that I would have liked early on that would have made my bod race worthy, but I definitely had enough mojo to get my ride in today.
The day was just pristine. Had some less than desired head wind at times but for the most part it was the titz. I loved seeing the sky pictured below as I climbed today. All I could think about was The Orb song "Little Fluffy Clouds"
I was paid back royally for taking the pic of the little dead "6 snake" below, later in the ride when I saw a VERY alive 5' black snake in the middle of the road. When it saw me it started doing some crazy ass sideways slither. I nearly shit myself. I was so spooked I think all last remaining bits of adrenaline left my body.
I love riding with the cows. I'm starting to get to know many of them. We usually just exchange "hellos" and go about our business. They don't seem to really understand what I'm doing. In the same way I don't understand cud.
Sorry for sort of a lack luster post. Gotz to do some stuff with the fam.
