So I took Gigantor, My bicycle out to enjoy the good weather. Saturday, we went 40 miles, around town and the Gateway Trail. I met my friend, B, for part of the Gateway. It was really slow- but, its all good. Anything to encourage people to do things they like, and I really enjoyed talking to him. I like riding at a faster pace too, but I like the companionship. I am excited to hit the trail with him again- but we need to get his bike adjusted better for him. Maybe by the end of the summer we will do a 40 mile ride together.
Sunday, after church and breakfast, Gigantor and I went for a 30 mile jaunt. First, to the Library to return a couple of books- then an impromptu visit to ironmarie. I feel guilty when I stop by peoples' homes uninvited, but it hasn't stopped me from doing it! from there, I went up the diagonal trail to the U of MN, up to East River Road to Summit, and then Lexington to Mom and Dad's for Sunday Dinner.
This all leads to a sore saddle. I need to get in better shape, and form a butt callous. Biking goals this year: The Century. Biking to Stillwater for the day (I've done this before), hill workouts in Mendota, The Munger trail. I would also really like to get to know the Grand Rounds this year.
This weekend, I am going biking with Diane. (I hope she doesn't kick my ass)
I think I am going to make my triumphant return to running today. Ugh.
ALSO- I saw "Clash of the Titans" this weekend. Very Corny, and some of the special effects are lack-luster, but it was really entertaining, and I would not hesitate to see it again
