quality not quantity



Quality not quantity. I love beer. I always choose to have a couple really good quality beers, over many crappy beers. The same is true for for my training plan for this season. In the past I had no training plan and no self control. I'd go a week off the bike, then feel guilty and go out in all kinds of weather to pile on the miles. The end result was often illness, sore knees and lack of fitness. This year is different.

I tried to ride my cross bike in big river yesterday with Wild Bill, but I lost a chain ring bolt and folded my chain ring. So instead I rolled around town on my track bike at a very easy pace, no hrm and no team kit. I just went for a bike ride. Today is a rest day! Tomorrow it's 3 hrs with Wild Bill in zone 2. Thinking about Wells ave. on Sunday?

Lynn got out on the road last night, she put a few miles on with Mike Iafrate. She came home in a great mood, obviously the fresh air was a welcomed change from the doldrums of trainer miles.

Lyons and Judge had a great day with two trips to the Richmond dog park and a quick foray into my aunt's pristine fenced in yard.

I agree w/ Murat - that is good beer. I had Redhook IPA last PM @ AS220 - it was good stuff.

I just downed a Harpoon Hibernian - hey, if you either of you guys want to ride in Lincoln Woods tomorrow night I'll be there ~ 5:45 - left off the twin river rd. entrance...
