Excellent day at the 'office' today. On the way to said office I saw this marvel of modern machinery.
What you can't tell so well from this angle is that it also had steel cranks... and you get the picture now I suspect. I wonder why some manufacturer opted for twist shifters 1) on a road bike and 2) they must have thought it made this thing look high-tech?
Today I opted for two shorter trainer rides instead of one longer one. Variety is the spice and all that.
My streak of beating my previous PRs stayed aloe but just barely... The first effort was not so bad, I must have ridden this when I was rehabbing my knee. The second effort was HARD. I was neck-and-neck with my ghost until the very last riser when I went all in and got a small gap which I Held to the finish and 'won' by about five seconds. Whew. I better make a mental note to leave this course alone for a bit unless I'm feeling very motivated. :)
After work I headed up to Breathe Hot Yoga for another Hot Pilates class. I am finally getting the hang pacing myself for this stuff. No longer do I try to do everything the hardest way and then collapse half way through each set. :) Some people learn slower than others.
I did not sleep long at all but when I woke up it was at just the right time in my sleep cycle. Sometimes you've got to be thankful for the small favors.
