Yep, I have a secret to share. I'm falling in love with mountain biking, again. I used to ride off road a lot about 12 years ago, then got away from it for years. This past month, I haven't touched my road bike and I've gotten out on the single track every weekend. It really is refreshing. Instead of cranking out the miles like a diesel engine, you get to maneuver over, under and around obstacles like a Jeep. Totally different feeling and really enjoyable. Here are some pics from this past weekend.
Day 2 - Slept much better. Got up at 5:30 and ran 3 miles and felt good. Dark and starry and 50 degrees. Felt good all day.
Day 3 - Arrived in Cleveland the night before and had a late business dinner. Lousy night sleep, but got up at 6:30 and ran 3 and a half miles on a crappy route.
Day 4 - Managed to get a 35 minute run in before the meetings started back up. Felt good.
Day 5 and 6 were the weekend.
On to week 2.......
