Veterans Day.....holiday for the kids! And that means puppy care for me- yeah. After an invigorating early AM with the dogs I left a sleeping puppy and headed to pick up Liz and out to Great Western Loop we headed.
Wow... I have been riding some since Kona but not climbing much. I know it's the off season, we were riding and chatting not doing any intervals nor had power goals..but I did glance at the Garmin as we passed the Bee Keeper and gulp....really 1:44? Um usually we are around 1:30 when we are working pretty hard, 1:35 when a bit more chatty....1:44- the problem is not so much the time, but the PE.... did not feel like 1:44. Well the conversation was good...thank you Liz! And a bit of a relief in that my Garmin was not programmed to auto stop- so we had the porta pottie stop and all the traffic lights (
It was a beautiful day....cool but not cold, started cloudy and cleared to sweeping views of the valley. With the rain last weekend the hills are greening up....truly my favorite time of year to ride!!! And if I am lucky I will get to do it again on Sunday!
