Today I was to "run a steady 6ish miles." Well my ankle decided it was not ready for that so I biked instead. Tonight's pre ride snack was an orange and some dehydrated coconut water powder mixed with filtered water in my water bottle.
Branching out helped make the ride go by even faster than I wanted it to.
(Champs Sports Pub was the exterior used for "Thirsty's" on the George Lopez show.)
I really enjoy the night rides because there are so few cars out. I'm feeling connected to the bike and finding myself naturally easing into the performance position. If I had aerobars, I would already be using them. Even though my gut is still in the way.
Also, there are very few things as cool as riding fast down a very long, dark tree lined grove listening to Golden Earring's Twilight Zone. Now before someone cries "foul!" because your not ever supposed to listen to headphones while riding, I was using the new Yurbuds™that allow in ambient noise so you can hear what's going on around you. (I'll be doing a full review very soon!) I'm beginning to get the urge to try some climbing, meaning routes with more elevation. But finding a route that is Zone 2 friendly might be a unique task. Having run through Griffith Park recently, I'm thinking about riding there. Plus, I have a new friend that says she's down to ride with me. (You hear that Penny Josie?)
And in other news, I needed a haircut when I started Ironman training. It is at the point now that it is embarrassing.
(Post pool hair from yesterday!)Gonna try to get a hair cut tomorrow so I can get back to my regular look.
I try to take unique photos and video each day I train. Part of the reason is, it's an accountability. An unspoken agreement I made at the beginning of this adventure with those that read this blog. Until tomorrow my friends.
