weaksauce mitigation, day one

what am i saying here?

less than flattering -- but that's ok.

obviously, yesterdays ss beating lit a bit of a fire. so today i saddled up the ssPie Pony (as in, humble pie pony), and headed to buff creek.

splendid idea. god i can be so smart sometimes.

24 mi.
-2.5 hrs.
2,050'v
10.8avg.
ZINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!! happy me.

buff creek is good for gettin' comfortable in that floaty part of the turn. why? because it's all pebbles on fluffy loose pebbly stuff. it's good for the turning soul. best to make sure you're tires are at the right pressure -- -and that your brakes work how you expect them too. i suck at speed in the floaty part of the turn. must.get.better.

the ss Pie Pony feels awfully stiff compared to the TI-ny dancer pony... i was all over the place. uncomfortably so. it still had me grinning. and laughing. and singing out loud.


but it was GOOD. and by good i mean, it was gorgeous. and beautiful, and bright. and speedy. and flowy. and 20 different kinds of brilliant. and, best of all, after a solid hour of warming up up-hill... I finally hit a solid stride and felt GOOD again.


feeling good again means a lot to me. perhaps i've just been tragically lazy ... for MONTHS. hum. there's an idea ;-)

i think i'm going to have to go out for more. of course, i could hardly hang all of my clean laundry this afternoon (tired arms) ... but that is ok. i can live with that ;-)

brilliant weather on tap for this weekend here ---- go make the most of it!
