Today is an unscheduled rest day.
I wasn't quite sure if I was getting sick or not. I was headachy, my neck was achy, I was out of sorts.... but then I remembered that riding in my aerobars does that too. (26.5 miles yesterday felt brutal - wow, did I get out of cycling shape FAST!) I took a nap and some Vitamin I and now I feel somewhat better.
Kind of a shame, because it was a really nice day! 65*F right now!
Winter cycling clothing notes: My new clothes all worked great yesterday. I like the Hind shirt so well I'm thinking of getting a second one - it's just the right weight for a versatile warm layer for winter running and cycling, super comfortable, fitted with flat seams, wicks well. The Descente booties worked like a charm, didn't bother me at all while cycling, and my tootsies were very toasty. I still need closed-finger gloves (ouch! I didn't quite realize that your fingers are the first thing the wind hits in aerobars) as well my balaclava (heh, I call it a baklava) or even some kind of full face mask when it gets much colder than 40-45*F. That wind hurts!
I'll leave off today with a Bonus Link:
Lance and Ironman. Fun stuff!
