Today was Fantastic Sunday. I went to the gym and did 25 minutes on the ellyptical machine while texting the guys to see what time they wanted to ride. I swear it takes forever for them to make decisions.
I was chomping at the bit to see how the new gearing would help me perform. It was a hot day (!) and we rode 34 miles. Oh Man Oh Man, I felt like I was on a brand new bike! Between the new crankset and longer crank, new handlebars, longer stem and new Garmin I was flying on cloud nine.
I rode about 4 mph faster on flat roads and got up the hills faster with less effort. Even knew by my nerdy new gadget that we climbed 1,100 ft elevation. Wasn’t nearly as tired at the end of the ride. I’m in heaven.
Then I met up with my brother and his friends at the beach where he snapped this photo. He loves the photo, and of course I am critical of it. We never love photos of ourself as much as others do.
An awesome Sunday for sure. Excuse me while I go watch another episode of Shameless.
