Post-season race recovery is generally a boring time for blogging. My rides have generally been short to non-existent. Though, yesterday, I did endeavor to participate in the Trinity (weekend world championships) Ride. I quickly realized, though, that my legs felt surprisingly good. Good to the point that they’d give me just enough to stay with the group and destroy myself all over again. So, I decided to preserve the recovery week and pulled off before the pace went from “fast” to “eye-ball bleeding.”
The most interesting thing about recovery week? Probably eating. Ryan and I went to Sea Bistro for lunch. It’s a new sushi place that moved in across the street from Outdoors, and it fvcking ROCKS. I’m currently addicted to the crispy fried tofu.
Today, we’re going to go for a long-ish, relaxed-paced MTB ride, lay around a little, then grill some stuff. I’ll probably be ready to fall out by 9:30. Recovery week also involves lots of that. Sleep is awesome. Recovery sleep is like being buried in concrete for 8 hours a night.
Aaaaand, that’s basically it. Work is busy. All of the 2011 bikes are on sale. Lots of people are wanting to ride again now that it’s not 100+ outside (I miss summer already).
Next stop? Cyclocross.
