Saturday we had an awesomely warm day, though overcast till 3pm. I did the airport loop that I hadn't done in a while and it took me probably an additional 30-40 minutes due to how often I had to slowdown/stop/yield/etc for people.
Hordes of people. Like walking dead hordes. Just not dead. Well not all of them. Even with all the slowassedness I still cut a few achievements including 3rd best time up the Custis.
Sunday was funday. We rode from the shop down to the C-anal and rode out to Great Fallzor. It was an epic battle of mud and people. We nearly got taken out by a group of crazy Chinese tourists that we wandering all over taking photos. So dirty. I was definitely feeling the tired. Then we did 41st street. And I made it! 20% grade at point, but more typically 8%. By the time you hit the top of the neighborhood your at near 300ft of climbing in 1.5 miles.
February has been a bit slack for me. My big week off was a mix of sitting, sleeping and eating. But very relaxing. I was definitely over trained in January. Hoping to get up to 20 hours this month. Today will get me to 16 or so but unless I rain ride.... Sigh. Though tomorrow is an off day riding in was so fucking tiring. Slooooow.
March....Cloudy with a chance of rain. It's looking like a very wet spring. Which is better I guess than a very snowy winter. MTB is going to be rare I think till April at this rate. In the next 15 days I think it's calling for rain on 7. Ugh.
But near 600 miles for the year? Can't complain as at the end of March 2015 I was at 500 miles and 46 hours.
Tonight's project? Tear down and clean MTB. Might even do cables if I go nuts.
