So I woke up early, had breakfast and headed out for my three and a half hour ride at about ten o’clock. It was early enough that it was actually a bit nippy with the wind so for the first time in months I was able to wear my wind vest.
The riding was pretty good, I ended up taking a weird course and went through Winterset Parks little off road (concrete) trail, which was pretty fun. After that I ran into another rider and road with him for a bit before I broke off into a neighborhood, which I bumped into a friend of mine in.
In the end it was a fun ride, but the wind was definitely kicking today.
When I finished up I had developed a little saddle sore because of my chamie. The problem came from where it has the little engraving lines in it. It basically rubbed me raw and now I have a bright red chamie tattoo on my butt man it hurts to sit down.
So I watched the Bamma vs. A&M game and man is Johnny football good or what? That kid makes his team so awesome, hes just exciting to watch. You just can’t count him out.
Once the game finished up I decided that I would head over to Rick’s house to grab a book called “The Secret Race” since I needed it for my English class project.
The thing is that it was the first time I had taken it out myself and gone someplace other than around my neighborhood. So I was freaking out because I thought I had broken it. Turns out it was a fluke, we think a spring popped, the only question now is how to get it home?
So tomorrow it looks like I am going to roll out early with a group out of Gustos around 8:30 for a 3 ½ hour spin.
Oh man, I almost forgot…can you believe Chris Horner pulled off his first Grand Tour today? Im so pumped, nice Job Chris!
