After innumerable viewings of Better of Dead this winter (nothing else to do, it was too snowy/rainy/cold) to generally ride my bike more than 1 day a week), I got back on the commute horse today. Well back on the Volpe and rolled into work.
Holy Sheet. I'm #@@$@ outa shape. Or my legs aren't used to that! My layering was also not optimal or being outa shape is making me VERY sweaty. I was in tights, bib shorts, long sleeve wooly and a jacket at 44'ish and I was sweaty as a pig when I got to work, next time I go wooly and sleeveless vest and 3/4 light pants. The bigger question is boots versus shoes with toe covers. I'm leaning towards the toe covers.
In other news I'm tracking my b33r/drink intake for April to try and reduce a bit. Or set a reduction goal. For now I'm at 2. I really didn't mean to have the 2nd one last night! Honest! The Perennial Sump Coffee stout is great with nice coffee/chocolate balance. Founders Nitro Oatmeal Stout is just smooth as hell.
For the first time in 8.5 years almost I'm going to have a regular Sat-Sun weekend starting this weekend. Road bike ride on Saturday morning and MTB on Sunday with Punga at Gambrill. Hell yah!
Now if only the rains would slow down.
