Boy did I have a pretty good day today.
I started out with getting out of school for the weekend and jumping on my bike for a hard ninety minute ride, due to the fact that I had to get in a 15 minute zone four interval.
That was pretty hard for today because I needed to do it on an uphill portion to replicate some of the tests that I will be doing at camp and so I had the hill but with it came a very hard head wind that was coming straight at me and I hate having headwinds with intervals, even though it makes you strong like bull. It just makes you feel really slow because you’re pouring your guts out and you feel like you should be going much faster, so its hard to tell what you were really capable of.
After the ride I came back home and found out that Chris Horner was the new leader of the Vuelta today; what a stud!
I am not really surprised because I had a feeling that he was going to pull this one off. If you really think about it though Horner should’ve been in the leaders jersey yesterday if it weren’t for the six second time gap that the judges ruled in that one finish that originally took him out of the red.
Anyways, when I got cleaned up I headed over to my Uncles house to celebrate his 33rd birthday!
I had such an absolutely wonderful time being able to see all of my cousins and getting to hang out with my Grandparents. It was just so great, we basically just laughed and told jokes and stories the entire night and ate a delicious Italian meal that my Grandparents brought, it was just so much fun.
I can’t wait to do it again next year!
