Another week gone by

The week went well, managed to commute to work 3 times this week. Almost 13 hours on the bike and I still have Saturday to go. Didn't get any close calls this week. All week long it was supposed to thunder and showers almost everyday. I decided to ride anyway and packed my rain gear in my backpack Monday and Wednesday. Not a single drop fell on me. I wish all weeks were like this week. All 3 days my legs felt great in the morning and afternoon. Wednesday ride I forgot I had a spinning class at 6:30 and rode to work and as soon as I got there I realized it. I left an hour earlier and made it with plenty of time to get the music ready. That added another 45 minutes for the day. Tuesday did some more yard work and Thursday it was just a very light weights day. Tomorrow I have two spinning classes some more yard work and in the afternoon we are going to a graduation party were I know I'll stuff my face with food. I think most people gain weight in the summer instead of the cold months. Between the picnics, weddings, graduation parties and summer bbq's, that's a lot of food, but it's gooooooood. Last year I was watching my weight all the time and I don't know if it had someting to do with the anemia and the walking pneumonia I got; this time around am still watching I don't gain unnecessary weight but I'm not holding back. I eat what I want but in moderation. The more weight you gain the more weight you have to carry up the hills. Anyway I do feel stronger with a couple more pounds specially on my mountain bike. And no, is not extra padding.
Sunday the Tour of the Four Horsemen starts with the Sunday in June ride. Pictures to come.
We are doing the century ride and I already warned everybody that we cannot go inside the building after the first 65 miles, the smell of food will keep you in there.

Tools of the trade

Things I see during my rides. An American Eagle carving on a tree stump.
I'll take a better picture next time I ride by it.

Was on my last mile when right in front of me mother duck and ducklings in tow cross in front of me. Kind of dark, I couldn't get my camera out in time. I should have waited until they got back under the sun. I'm sure I'll see them again.

Foggy commute on Wednesday morning

Much better in the afternoon
