Second Base (and the getting there of)
Did up a post work quickie tonight. The trails were aces and since my only goal was to get a fast (for me) houri-ish ride in and keep the legs spanky, I mixed up some of my loop and hit some trails in reverse. I also rode a few trails that I often opt out of since they cause me to have to have to double back and eph my loop. It was refreshing to "rediscover" some of my fave trails by doing them in reverse.
In the end I only rode for 10 miles, and a hair over an hour. It sort of felt like only getting to "second base" on date night. I mean I was happy to spend some time on the trails, but when your used to scoring, "second base" feels just sort of "there". But I'll take it! It felt great!
Tom called with info about the Dos Niner. Looks like my XT bottom bracket cups are shot. I heard some clicking coming from it on Saturday, and it was confirmed "shitty" today. Frig! Looks like I need to go bust ass looking for some tomorrow around the 'Burgh. I hope I don't have to hear "we don't have 'em, but we could order 'em" a million times. Oh well, if this is the worst of my race week worries, I'll be happy.
Time for bed.
