Looks like Duluth finally came through with ideal marathon weather. From what I saw there were some pretty fast times. Congrats to one and all!!
Yesterday morning I went for a long bike ride after riding 46 the night before.
My bad ... I didn't have breakfast first. Just a nectarine and half a cookie (I think). I had some granola bars with me. Ate one, but decided they just weren't going to do the trick. So I stopped at Kwik Trip in Stewartville for some calories. Nice morning for a ride, but there are a lot of bugs out there.
I saw this rather interesting contraption in High Forest. Push mower attached to a bike pulling something or other!
At about 45 miles, my legs were cramping really bad. Adductors. The ones that make me want to cry or scream. So very painful. I had to get off the bike several times to massage the cramps away. In the end, 70.44 miles. Kind of a tough ride. I was totally wiped out, and very hungry, for the rest of the day.
I'm losing an ash tree in the back yard so today I moved the hostas into the shade of some trees next to the garage. I think they'll be happy there.
Also mowed, put stuff on the ant hills, sprayed the weeds which are now getting rained on :-( and moved a rock border from around the tree getting cut down. It felt good to get all that stuff done.
Remember those fun fergalicious black shoes I tried on the other day? Now they're mine. $20 bucks at Famous Footwear. FUN.
Until next time.
