My posts have been sparse lately. Guess it’s because I don’t have a lot to say. What?!? Me? Speechless? Hmmm, it appears so. Well really, I just haven’t been carrying the camera around with me, and I really prefer making posts when I have photos. Oh well, just some ramblings now.
Spring is in the air, so I’ve been getting back into the bike scene. I’ve been getting out on the SS to get ready for the Growler. I’m learning how important leg strength really is now. I always thought the weight training in the winter was overrated and really not necessary for a person like me who doesn’t seriously race. Well, that was definitely a stupid thought. I’ve got sore knees (hurts walking up stairs) and can’t make climbs I know for a fact I was doing last year quite easily. Yes, I’m outta shape, but I think leg strength has a lot to do with it too. So, I’m back at it. Punishing the knees on the SS in hopes of getting them tuned up for the 32 miles at Gunny!
Got in a nice ride with Tanya today on the road, then a great walk downtown with Matt for some Happy Hour Sushi. Yum!
