3hrs easy this AM.

So Wed I was a hurtin puppy at the Haymarket ride. I was about why I felt so blah. Then I looked at my calendar and noticed I was *supposed* to be on a rest week. NO WONDER! The body knows, even if the brain don't.

Well, its true I don't 'need' it yet. It ain't cracked yet. ...but as easily as the TT dented, I'm betting its a matter of time.

I'm leaning towards the Scott Foil clone and putting a custom steeker on the downtube that sez S'NOTT.

I am a long distance rider, part II

600k/378.8 mile brevet is done. My riding buddy and I finished at 7:15 pm today for a total time of 38 hrs 15 min. We did get two hrs of sleep lists night so I'm exhausted.

With a 600 completion, we now eligible for the CO Last Chance...1200 km/ 750 miles in 90 hrs. Needless to say, I have a lot to do between now and Sept.

Good to see that everybody is getting some nice rides in. I'm getting absolutely shelled at work and am lucky to get in one ride week.

I managed to beat the heat and get out for a night trail ride Saturday. I was about 9 miles in and thinking about my next move when, ambling across the trail in front of me, was a big-ass black bear. I figured that discretion was the better part of valor and headed for the truck.

I thought I was riding a bit. I got nuthing.

I went on a loop of Fountainhead this AM. Was supposed to meet a buddy... showed up. No one. Pulled the 15min rule and left.

Fountainhead is one of those places that EVERYbody goes. There's only one loop, so if something happens, it won't be too long before someone comes along. I don't feel too sketched out about riding solo there.

Had a decent little loop: 1:20ish of getting to know where the rust ends and skills start again.

In the process of getting up/ready/eating/etc I didn't turn on my phone.

Guess who'd left a txt that he was bailing?

Oh well. I had a good little ride anyway.

The dog was giving me the stink-eye for leaving him here today. I'll take him running tomorrow.
