Dare You to Move

After yesterday's post, I am pumped to get out of this recovery stage and back into training mode. I have fallen off the wagon temporarily, eating too much junk, and drinking too much coffee and soda (yeah, I supposedly gave that crap up in September). I have a possible 10K in less than 3 weeks!

I did joined the cycle group again tonight and here's what it looked like in numbers:

0 - number of water bottles I brought ... dumbass.
1 - number of females ... yours truly
2 - number of sharkies I had ... I love these things.
3 - number of males ... odds are good... right? booyah!
15.1 - number of miles on the bike
15-25 - mph wind gusts from the East
73 - degrees and sunny



It was a glorious ride! I loved it ... and I will be going again next thursday... hopefully we will be going for a longer ride. I will close this post with our newest American Idol ... the lovely DC...




OCN: 15.1 miles, 1:11:38, average 12.6 mph

Thank good Cook won, I dispise that little sappy pipsqueek Archuleta. I would be willing to wager he has a very boring and small career.
Nice ride keep up the good work. :)

I ordered some Sharkies..I am going to try them on my long runs. They are a little expensive...actually they were pretty cheap on Amazon with free shipping...but they won't ship them to HI! Arghh! I will let you know what I think...

Hmmmm. . . sounds like a good cycle group. Don't tell any other ladies about it and you'll have them all to yourself. :)

I'm with you, too. It's time to get into full-on marathon training mode for my fall race.

Good job on your continued workouts!

Way to represent the ladies! We all need time to "fall off the wagon" once in a while, just as long as you get back on...

Good luck training for your 10K in a few weeks!
