Holy Roller Sunday
After yesterday's mileage feast on the gravel and dirt of my local mountain roads, I spent most of the night eating Mexican food and drinking beer whilst hangout out with my crimson haired bosomy gal pal Wifey. I then stayed up until almost 1 a.m. watching The Pacific on OnDemand. In other words I took a pretty 'tard recovery approach to a 4:30 ride. I spent the morning watching Dutch TV's live web video of Perry-Roo-Bay in conjunction with Euro Sport's audio (GOD BLESS THE WEB! It ain't just porn and bike blogs after all!) It was great!
However I wasn't going to spend my whole day WATCHING guys ride bikes, when I had some riding to do of my own. I I was Glad to see F.C. win. I really thought that he and Sniff would burn out in a wattage pissing contest and someone else would sneak in for the win. I was wrong of course. So I left the office/man cave/den of stench (I eat a lot of beans) and headed with B-Man to hang with my Dad and get some road mileage in. I hoped for the best, expected the worst and got a little bit of both.
Today's ride was not easy on tired legs, but it was still great. A few quick steep ups, and a lot of rollers. That was fine by me after yesterday's long dirt and gravel climbs.
This week will have a few short rides and Saturday's Leesburg Bakers Dozen. One of my fave races of the year. Earlier this year, I hoped to compete for a top 10 at this race. I still hope to do well, but I think it may be best to hope for top 20, considering there are like EIGHTY in my class!
Tomorrow is a day off of the bike and day ON the computer and some XXC work.
