Rainy & Spanky
Woke up to sunshine this morning even though they were calling for rain. This was a welcome sight, since I had self scheduled myself to get back on the bike today. After getting B-Man off to pre-school and getting some minor house things taken care of, I was off to ride. By now the sun was gone, but it looked like I could still squeeze my ride in without coming home with a pruned up ass.
The first thing I noticed when I started was that my legs felt fine. Not great, but nowhere near how they normally feel post race. I stayed in the saddle a lot, and did a lot of spinning rather than pushing anything too big. That seemed to work great to get the legs feeling normal and dare I say "spanky".
30 minutes into the ride I felt the first sprinkles of rain, by the 50 minute mark I was pretty much riding in some steady weed whacker to face type drizzle. I figured that since this was pretty much a "recovery" ride nothing could be gained from pushing on in the cool rain. So I shortened my loop by about 15 minutes and headed back.
Glad I went though, it was nice to see that I made a quick recovery from Saturday's 100+ miles and that if I do some of these easy rides this week, by the weekend I should be ready for some big mileage again.
Time to get back to XXC site hell. I can find NO inspiration for Web design. Functionality wins out over creativity too often, and simplicity of design is all too rare. XXC might just be heading to Blog only, but I am sick to the back teeth of Blogger. Oh well.
