Unfortch, taper makes me quite boring. Apparently, ALL I do is run. Okay, there is some yoga, lifting and now riding, but mostly I'm just a runner.
Last night I went out for my last run before El Scorcho. Just four measly miles. I tried to take it slow and replicate "race" pace. I managed just under a 10 minute mile. Like I'll average anywhere near that on Saturday! (Sunday?) Oh wells.
Rode up the bike shop and bought some beautiful blue bottle cages for Helen. (thanks Eric for loaning your allen wrenches) They are the exact shade of blue! I've had so many people ask why I didn't get a pink bike. Y'all, Y'ALL, I would have certainly bought a pink bike if that was even an option! Bikes, apparently, in my price range anyway, are like running shoes, you get the one that fits. Color is secondary. Because I'm small (short) I bought a women's fit bike...so the colors were a little girlier than the other bikes.
