Today was an absolutely gorgeous Colorado spring day. Light wind, mid 60s and sunny. Since it's a rest week I slept in until almost 10am and then did a lot of random chores. As such, this blog will have a lot of random topics in it. Now that you're prepared, lets begin.
Step one after getting up and eating breakfast was finishing assembly of the time trial bike to get it rideable. I will be swapping my daily wheels on it and taking it for a spin tomorrow but here she is in yellow glory.
Turbo says, "I'm aero!"
It was so nice outside, I decided to stop taking pictures in the house and moved to the front yard.
After I was done messing around taking pictures of the bike, we decided to wash the car. We want to sell the Civic in order to get an Element so after it was cleaned up we took a bunch of pictures.It's a 2003 Honda Civic Sedan LX 5 speed manual transmission, 32k miles, fresh Mobil 1 oil changes and almost brand new all season tires. If you know anyone who would be interested please send them our way. It will be going on craigslist tomorrow.
Once we finished washing the Civic it was nice and hot out. Marni and I got our cycling duds on and went out for a ride. I took the Monocog and she took her hand me down, too big Cannondale. We went out to the Big Dry Creek trail via Standley Lake. It was really nice out and we were all smiles.
The trail winds over dirt, gravel and concrete through the city and past a few remaining farm areas. We waved "Hi" to the llamas.
We rode for about 2 hours and it was great. My legs feel awesome and I'm totally ready for hard training to begin again next week. Tomorrow I think I'll take a nice easy spin around the lake on the time trial bike and then Monday after work I've got hill repeats schedule on the Wall!
Tonight we're going to have some dinner and watch a movie, Madagascar. If you have ever been to Noodles and Company and want to go again for free, join their Noodlegram promotion and let them spam your (junk) email address for free noodles. Marni and I signed up and are going tonight, plus Marni got another free coupon as well since her birthday is March 28th.
Seriously if you want to laugh, read this MTBR post. I promise it is worth the click through. Why I could not ride my 29er today
Finally we'll end today's randomness with more of the same. Pictured below is the delicious cookies Marni bought that I've been stuffing myself with all day. Also I got some Chamois BUTT'r when I picked up the remaining parts for the time trial bike. Amazingly I've never used any of this stuff so I think it's high time I start.
