Vit Tornado & I had a lovely 2 hour ride yesterday...it was a balmy 40ish degrees outside. I was dressed appropriately, or so I thought. My face, ears & hands were pretty cold...so, thank God for holiday hours at Sport Chalet, where we made a pitstop...get it..pit stop..o.k. that was bad. Anyway, I was able to get a head/ear cover & some silk glove liners!!! Way better. Do you know where a girl can get a warm tuna & sausage ciabatta with curly fries?
Well I digress...back to the ride: we did lots of hill riding w/some hill repeats thrown in for fun. I am hoping to one day be good at climbing hills...as my friend, let's call him Pendong, says: you gotta climb hills to get strong! Well crap, I couldn't even walk up stairs later that day. Don't know how strong I'm getting, but I am persistent!
All in all it was a good ride. Vit thought it was a punishment day, but no, it was just a climbing day. I know, it's easy to be confused between the two.
So, today Vit & I swam today....about 1,700 yards for me. It was windy & "balmy" again this morning. And, later I did a 6 mile walk that took 90 mins.
Let me explain...I have pretty bad knees & a bad back, so my docs. think it is best not to "run"...so, I try to walk more & reserve my runs for the triathlons.
NOTE: I can probably walk faster than I run!!
Well, speaking of getting fat, I am now baking homemade chocolate chip cookies...too good to resist. I called Vit & his wife-let's call her Lola-to come over for milk & cookies, but Vit is in his jammies doing laundry..so, my husband called him a W.A.T.B.
OK-time to go...peace & love, TracerX
