We will, we will rock ya

Done something yesterday I haven't done in some time. Had a date with some cast iron weights. Did some weight lifting. Was fun.

But today back to reality, hot out and tired from work but hopped on the "skinny girl" bicycle and headed out on the pavement. Legs did their job.

I realized now that my my company who I work for is going to use my bike mileage for United Way pledges I will have to track all my miles. I purposely only kept track of dirt centuries so I would just relax and ride pavement with no consciousness of miles and enjoy. Usually after work pavement rides are 20 to 30 miles with rolling hills and weaving in and out of traffic. Fun stuff.

Rode along the Mississippi River tonight, river traffic was busy, makes for a scenic ride.

Went down to Riverfest, "AlmostQueen" was banging out some Queen rockers. I was down in the mosh pit with my honey, rocking to the tunes. 57 years old and just loving the music. Should I stop that? I don't think so.

OK, my hope is this weekend to ride a lot of hot dusty gravel roads, push myself to my limits, drink 30 lbs of fluids and ride 150 miles. Does it get any better than that?
