I am finally confident enough to get back into the group riding format. Jesse, Andy, and I jumped into the Tuesday morning group ride. We headed out on Ajo and snuck up behind Gates Pass for a slugfest to the top. Jesse got pinned on the front and nobody would replace him. They now realize that he has some power. Finally, some Eclispe rider jumped and I took the late jump after him. After about a minute I realized that it must be February because that was about all I had for power, a minute. We finally headed to Gates when a Seasilver rider took off. I tried to close him down on Gates but I ran out of climb. Still I was happy.
I had another massage yesterday by a girl named Genie (?) at the Providence Institute. I asked for Deep tissue work in the lower legs and that is what I got. She was good because a lot of people kill you with deep tissue. She was popping all sorts of crap out of my legs. It became a running joke between us everytime she found something. There was a lot of old injury build-up to squash out.
Well, after the slugfest in the ride today I set out for four and half more hours. I hit the wall at about hour three of six so I had to make the Little Debbie stop to get my energy back. It is nice to ride long and then eat crap because the guilt trip doesn't hurt so bad. I had those chocolate chip cookie things with the white creamy crap in the middle. I had no idea I had bought the creamy filled ones because I hate them. Still, there was two chocolate chip cookies involved so that made it worth it.
Batteries died in the camera so no picture. I wanted a picture of this big ass C5A flying overhead lastnight. The thing looks like a cruise ship in the sky it is so big.
Valley of the Sun is soon and I am in o.k shape. It will still hurt but that will be good.
