weights | core | south Lake WA loop + Mercer Island

I could complain how it's incredibly frustrating to be told I have to hold back and that I should not ride more than two hours at a time and that I shouldn't get out of the saddle or go hard but instead I'll say that is was awesome to get outside when it's not raining and how fun this loop - that I have ridden about a million times and normally think is boring as all get out - can be when you have so few options and have not been outside since last weekend.

I actually had a good time! I did have to concentrate a LOT to keep the pace down and to stay in the saddle. Of course as my fitness fades it's getting easier and easier. :(

I saw a lot of cyclists out and about today, that was really cool. Even a few small groups in matching kits. And I saw Uli Steidl (running south on Lake WA Blvd), Alastair Lockett (on his way home as I headed south) and then coming around Mercer Island I think I saw Kenny Williams. It's always nice to see folks.

ASIDE - some people 'run' but Uli was running! He was out with this guy I recognized from the Loop The Lake Marathon and they were freaking hauling ass. Into the wind! Amazing to see.

Oh yeah, and I went to the gym this morning for some more one-legged stuff. See that guy with the one normal leg and one atrophied leg? That's me.
