Memorial Day has been grand! First there was the race on Friday night. It was a challenge and a lot of fun. After the race we went out for a celebratory drink with a couple of people from the running club. Not too much fun but a couple of drinks and a lot of talk.
On Saturday I got up early and hit the trace for a quick group ride. There were three of us and we got off the trace a couple of times and tackled the hills – 40+ miles total. After the ride Jodie and I went to the coast and did a little bit of Memorial Weekend shopping.
Sunday was another early morning ride. Some of the same guys – some different. Another good ride off of the trace with more hills – 30+ miles total. After the ride it was yard work time. Got everything trimmed and mowed.
Monday was another morning ride. Some of the same guys – some different. I was the only one that was at all three rides. This ride was completely off of the trace and quite spirited with hill – 49 miles total. After ride there was more yard work – I planted a tree and 4 bushes. Jodie planted about 20 daises around the yard. We still have about 80 more Gerber’s to put into the ground. We need to create another flower bed.
It was hot and humid and rained sporadically all weekend. All of my bike rides missed the rain. Great weekend. The Heat Wave triathlon is next weekend so I will only get a run or two this week and then the taper starts again.
