I started the day at Gray's Lake. Allyson and I walk there a lot in the summer. It was the first day warm enough to do a few laps. We were just finishing our first loop when we ran into Justin H. At that point Allyson decided she wanted to go for a run too (this is in no way related to Justin showing up, she had mentioned that she might run when we got there). It was fine with me, I just convinced Justin to take a recovery lap to talk with me. After two laps I decided it was time to get some coffee in me, so I headed home to check out CBS Sunday Morning on the DVR.
After downing a few cups of coffee and discovering the wacky stuff that Bill Geist was up to last week, it was time to head out again. I have really been enjoying my new bike. On Friday I was out for 25 miles, so today I decided to up it. I rode to Cumming and back, which is about 35 miles if you go through downtown (which we did). I got up to 26 MPH on the downhill and 22 on a flat (OK, OK, a very slight slope down). It was great. Well, it was great except for heading up Sherman Hill. Luckily I had Stimmel coaching me through the ride and feeding me Shot Bloks when I started to bonk.
After a 4 mile walk and 35 mile ride I'm ready for some knitting before heading to bed early. I haven't been at work since last Monday. I hope I still remember my passwords.
