No not from riding silly! It's time to retire the Old Pueblo post from the top of the blog. It hasn't totally pushed it's way out of my mind but thoughts have moved onto positives and areas of improvement. Lots else has been happening although I don't have pictures because I'm a dumbass and I dropped my camera and broke it. These one's today are pre-dropage. It's currently on it's way to being repaired by the people at Cannon. I have been riding, a lot acutally. I'll decline to post actual figures only to say that there is a century in there and I've been trying to keep up with Mr.Nice for March. I'm not far behind as of today. If I had to bet I'd say he'll end up kicking my butt but it's fun trying to keep up. The weather has been nice here and with DST fast approaching the itch to ride outdoors is strong. Marni and I have done several rides together lately including up Lookout Mountain with Bill plus a neighborhood cruise and some actual dirt action today. Marni's Fuel and my SS are a bit dirty but happy to keep the road miles down whenever possible. She's feeling the fatigue of new steady training but it's going to pay off if she continues to push through. I keep getting faster too so I suppose that affirms things are still moving in the right direction. My lunch loop today on Cogsworth was just shy of 18mph which is definitely a new record and my legs recovered from a 150/9 weekend beating with just one day of active recovery.
Now it's time for dreams of TransIowa, KTR and mostly the Grand Loop to dance in my head thanks to Dave Harris and StephanG. Dreams of red dirt and the Rim Ride are almost reality since I'm running off to the desert this weekend with DaveC, Adam, Mr.Nice, Fred and maybe others(?) for some course scouting. Camping and technical riding oh baby! The new GoLite pack will get it's first *real* shakedown, hopefully affirming it's use in the aforementioned Grand Loop.
