AM Weight: 198.5

Bike: Eggplant Ibis

Ride Time: 140 minutes

Ride Distance: 32-ish miles

Ride: From work (yes work on a Saturday) out to the Sand Hill loop via Charleston-Foothil-Page Mill and return Foothill-Shoreline.

Ride Thoughts: Rode with an Ace Bandage ankle support and it worked well – for about 15 minutes. Oh well. Simply a great ride other than that. Nice sunny warm day bordering on hot. Haven’t done this ride in probably four years but still remember every little climb and descent and detail. I guess I did used to ride it at least once or twice a week so that should be no surprise.

AM Weight: ???

Bike: Eggplant Ibis

Ride Time: 30 minutes

Ride Distance: 0 – ROLLERS!

Ride: Rode the rollers on the deck.

Ride Thoughts: Rode the rollers on the deck since I’m solo with Jasper but also because I want to keep the legs spinning but reduce the wear and tear on my Achilles tendon. It still feels sore but less stressful. Had a fun time showing off for Jasper. I think he was having a hard time trying to figure out how the heck I stayed on there without falling off.

Bike: Eggplant Ibis (Road bike, Dura Ace, Ritchey, Diacompe, Chris King… Very high zoot and light! Also a racing bike and not well suited to my currently fat ass)

Ride Time: 115 minutes

Ride Distance: 29 ish miles

Ride: From work to top of Steven’s Creek damn with side trip to Rancho San Antonio

Ride Thoughts: Rode with Yohei and was nice to have the company. Tendon still ripped up and making me slow to accelerate and climb. Boo! Other than that, great weather and nice ride. Really enjoying riding for the first time since my racing days!

AM Weight: Didn’t…

Bike: Johnny Tomes! (Tomac Mt. Bike)

Ride Time: 55 minutes

Ride Distance: 14 miles???

Ride: From work, mess around in the marsh paths.

Ride Thoughts: Achilles Tendon WAS feeling fine walking and everything but within minutes of riding started hurting again. Dammit. Otherwise, an easy spin around the scenic, yet smelly marsh.
