Ok. Not so much. Just a bunch of training. At least I somehow conned some suckers to join me for most of my weekend festivities. Saturday I did a killa brick workout with two awesome guys:
...and today I did a 50ish mile ride/open water swim with some lovely ladies:
It's pretty funny going from spending 4 hours with guys to 3 hours with the ladies while training. Some similarities - with the guys and the ladies we pushed each other pretty darn hard. But when it comes to gossip..whoops..I mean chatting..the girls chat so that the whole group is involved. The guys? Not so much. I kind of felt like the third wheel. But to be honest, that was A-ok with me. Why do I want to hear the male gossip? Boring :)
And today - I fell. Awesome:
I hate wearing gloves while on my bike - but I have been lately for this reason. What do you put out when you are doing the 'why did I unclip my right foot and falling to the left' slow motion dance? Your hand. No biggie. But it's always fun to be out in the middle of red neck land with a bloody knee.
Random product - boot dryer. Jason has this guy for when he goes tuna fishing. But what else is it ideal for? To stick your oh so smelly bike shoes on:
You just plug this guy in - and the warm air for the base comes up and dries your sticky, sweaty, shoes. Not only are they great for cycling shoes, but running shoes as well :) (I kind of feel like a Real Simple article!)
How do you keep your bikes shoes from smelling?
Hope everyone had a great weekend - and congrats to anyone who raced!
