Finally I was able to get out and do a ride with Birdman on the weekend. Took a few emails and texts, but it finally happened. The first thing I noticed when we met up was that he had the same exact glasses as I just got for my birthday. They just got instantly less cool. We had a good time, and he might have had less of a good time as the last 1hr his butt was on fire and he had to unload. I hope he made it.
Last night was one of our family Christmas parties and it was a good time, well the last hour of it was a bit nerve racking as I was watching the Lions do one of their fall behind and catch up by the end routines. Not cool guys. Most had left before the end and told me maybe next time. I had made some fun phone calls/texts after that. It's going to be a fun week of family get togethers as that is the best part of the holidays. Plus with Madelyn now being older she loves open gifts. It was fun watching her put a stocking on her foot like a sock, is she so smart or not smart enough? Also her birthday is just two days after Christmas. It's going to be a busy week.
So count another 6 day riding week in the books and everything still feels pretty good. This week I'm going to start with some light intervals and see how it goes. I can't believe how much that surgery helped. Now I just have to continue my build processes slowly.
Ok I probably should start shopping.
