south end of Lake WA + Mercer Island on a single speed

I'm a bit unsure what to do here. I have my biggest run coming up in two weeks, I just put in a hard day Friday and I know my body does not tolerate too much abuse. I did take yesterday off so erred on the side of caution today and went for a ride instead of running.

I think it was the right thing to do.

I kept feeling better and better the more I rode and the swelling in my feet when down a little as well.

Ironically while I was recovering from my run I met Win Van Pelt who has a case of 'runner's knee' (whatever that means) and was also out riding his bike. We rode together a bit and chatted.

On Mercer Island I saw two guys, one who was in a House Wine kit. I love that wine and thought it was really cool that they have thrown their hat in the sponsorship ring for local athletes. They were doing intervals or something and I managed to keep up with them, then I dropped them when they took a break and then they caught up to me again when they did their next interval. Good times.

At the end of my island loop I saw the 20/20 Fuel Cycling team heading out for their usual Sunday lap of Mercer Island.

The weather was fabulous!
