Back to Back rides

It's been a while since I've pulled off back to back rides.  Even though I was sucking wind and had no legs, it still felt good.  She was a bit sandy out there today, which was not too good for me this morning.  I've got the itch again, need a day off, but can't wait to clip in and go again.

Well, I had it coming to me.  This ride was pitiful.  I've neglected my bike so bad, I rode with a half flat tire the whole ride.  It made it kind of weird in the turns.  Now that I have insurance, thanks Rachael, I'm going to get an appointment with a doc to get my foot checked out.  I have to quit being a lazy ass and get back into shape.  I HAVE to do better at Custer next year than this year.  Oh yes folks you heard it here, provided I can get the entry fees covered I will be back for another round at the Fort Custer Triathlon.  Anyway, if you are interested in looking at a pitiful ride, take a look at this crap.

Since the triathlon

Well, since the triathlon I've pretty much been a slob.  I've only ridden twice and haven't ran at all.  I've been swimming, but not like I was pre-triathlon.  Yesterday I went out and did some open water swimming with some new training toys I bought.  Hand paddles and swim fins, they kicked my ass.  Any way, here are the two rides I have done.  I'm waiting for Tony and Matt Longest to get here to do a ride tonight.  As much as I want to say they won't crush me tonight, I have a feeling there will be some serious wind sucking out of this kid.  That's what I get I guess.

This was a ride at the Cannonsburg State Game Area.  I was doing well that day, minus a couple of spectacular crashes.
