Happy Thanksgiving!

Quick 11 mile ride, 800 ft of climbing. Feel really energized after sprinting!

Went down through presidio park and then went up and down the ocean beach bike path to hotel circle and then back down to ocean beach, then back up through the park. The smell of thanksgiving was truly intoxicating in Mission Hills! I was like the bisto kid!

I'm thankful for
  1. Great weather
  2. Wonderful bike paths
  3. Lovely husband
  4. Fluffy cat
  5. Team in Training for helping me get on my bike a bit more
  6. Wonderful friends

Right then, I'm off to get some dinner going! Have a wonderful day!

Back again!

I thought I'd keep myself honest by blogging about my training. My bike riding has become sporadic and I've not kept it up, so I decided to sign up for another program with Team in Training to keep me riding properly. I've not ridden with other people for months, so its definitely time to get back out there riding.

I already managed to bale on the first week of training around Fiesta Island, but I did manage a ride this weekend.

Stats for week 1 : 20 miles and 700ft climbing. A really beautiful ride around mission bay and then harbor island and back home again. I'm resolving to make sure I do at least 1 ride over thanksgiving weekend of 30 miles or more.
I'm so lucky to live in a place where its warm and sunny even in late november!!
Here's my fundraising page for anyone interested. I'm trying something new this season, I'm making cakes for my fundraiser, and as you can see, its going pretty well!!
