We got another dose of foul weather yesterday and last night which will make riding outside impossible for a couple of days. This week I don't mind as much. I am on a rest week, and I can get the few hours I need on the trainer.
I did mange to get in some quality road miles over the weekend. Saturday we rode from Matt run Forrest's new shop and made our way into Lancaster. Charlie laid out a nice loop and for much of the ride I felt pretty good. I felt real good on the first big climb but paid the price shortly after when I popped on the next little rise. Thanks to Tom aka Papa Smurf who hooked me up with a Gu. I recovered and felt Ok the rest of the ride. Of course that could have been due to finally having a tail wind.
Yesterday I grabbed the Ipod and headed out for a solo effort. My legs were pretty worked from the day before so I took things easy, and still managed a few hours.
Rachael and I have found a new activity. Something we tried for the first time together. Marc and Diane invited us to climbing at a local indoor gym. Rachael and I had been wanting to try it for a while so I was excited.
Rachael seems to be a natural.
Me, not so natural...
We both had a blast except for the rental shoes. We now have our own shoes. If I could I would climb more often, right now it is a couple of times a week. It tales a few days for the muscles to stop hurting. But we are enjoying it.
