Easing Into The Weekend
Opted not to ride tonight. Did mucho running around to take care of some bizness- house/car stuff like buying a dishwasher, grocery shopping and getting a CD player for the Soob. Several hours spent in places I didn't want to be, dropping coin on things I REALLY did NOT want to spend coin on.
I wanted the food of course. I needed salad fixin's! I've been hooked on salad like a freaking crack head! I love the fact that if I shove enough lettuce and raw vegetables in my face I stop craving a pound of pasta. Tonight was a huge salad, grilled chicken breasts, grilled zukes and brown rice. "I'm not losing weight, I'm leaning out". That's what I tell Wifey. Her usual response is her showing me her middle finger. To which I answer- "your not a bitch, you're FEISTY!" Again- more middle finger, but this time it's two of them.
I've easing up a bit on my saddle time through the week in hopes of putting in several hours of dirt on Saturday. Normally or I should say originally I planned to be heading to the Wilderness 101 this weekend, but the Summer Of Stank which has been my race season of course prompted me to lay off of racing for a while and get my mojo back. Well the mojo's back but racing would not be wise right now. So I plan to go half way this weekend. A hard race effort, but not so many hours that my body can't recovery properly. Just want to keep working on fueling and pacing for my Solo 24 on August 30th. Good luck to all the folks racing the 101 this year. Its' a good time and I'll miss it.
Sadly, everything old seems to be new again...
Man, just like the "Lance years" Trek just can't let go of designs akin to the old "Y" frame thing. I don't care if they DID make a sub 21 pound full suspension I just can't dig that vibe. That carbon No Cut Seatmast should fare just dandy in a crash in the rocks. Not my cup of tea, but if you have$6500, dig full carbon mountain bikes, tiny carbon (WTF???) wheels, and the oft under-appreciated retro frame style of the mid 90's, the '09 Top Fuel should be right up your alley. Where did I put my neon Oakleys?? Thermo Nuclear Protection® man! I'm sort of kidding of course. Just not my bag.
Road tomorrow. Joy.
