yeah, i haven't posted for a while, but frankly there hasn't been much going on... work, trainer, sleep, repeat has been the order of business for the last week... a couple of easy rides last weekend to ease myself back onto the bike after being, then a rest week this week, so i've been taking it easy.
took my dad up to greenbrier for a ride last sunday... he started riding a bit last summer, but hasn't ridden since the weather got cold and hadn't ventured beyond schaeffer... he's always been a runner, so he's in pretty good shape, but a bit timid on a bike. in the end he surprised me with how well he handled the rocks, and stuck to it even after a few falls.
this weekend i hit greenbrier again, this time with peter, jason, wayne, and a host of others for a MORE ride.... it was a casual ride which lets everyone settles into their own pace with a few stops to let everyone regroup... i wasn't looking to ride hard, but i got in a good ride and felt strong, up near the front on most climbs, and i got to catch up with a couple people that i haven't seen for a while...
rest time is over, time to get back to training next week... still waiting to get my training plan
