Glad I Got That In
Wow, been busy. TRYING to get mag stuff sorted (an going mad trying to track down some race pics from various sources), trying to get some riding in, and still trying to do all my dad/hubby stuff too.
I took a day off the bike yesterday. It was sort of an unplanned day off. First I got sucked into the Tour and even though Versus replays the the stage 12 times a day, I STILL refused to leave the house until it was over. Then I got sucked into working on some stuff. Then I was hungry, then it was lat afternoon... And lost that urge to get out. Sad too, 'cause it was beautiful yesterday and I'm not sure I left the house until after 3 or so.
I was able to get out this morning for a sweet 16 mile loop at Boyce and just beat the rains. Glad I got it in too, because as expected it seems that our week and half of sunny weather is gone, and the weather nerds are predicting rain in some form or another for the next 9 of 10 days. So we can resume the W.S.E. already in progress. Sorry for that brief sunny interruption.
As I said yesterday's Tour stage sucked me in. I could not look away. I was not shocked or all that disappointed to see Contador get the win, and Yellow. It does sort of suck that it seems like it's pretty much all over and the rest of the Tour will be spent watching who gets 2nd and 3rd. I hope I'm wrong. I'd like to see some surprises and make it more interesting.
I love this video. It shows that not every racer is fighting it out for a podium spot, some are just trying to finish within the time limit (Like many of us!). Check it out.
He was a bit more upset at the end off yesterday's stage though.
