Today was an awesome day. I finished up a short training block, which means the next few days I get to rest up and visit Jaco Van Delden Physical Rehabilitation (or just Jaco for short) and get my muscles stretched out and ready to rock again.
This morning I swam my longest solo pool swim this year, and maybe ever. 5600m, which isn’t that far, but I hate swimming by myself, and I’m pretty sure every time I’ve attempted that kind of workout in an empty pool it has ended up finding a way to shorten itself. After that I headed off to Tantalus (yup, it’s still my favorite ride – Marin County may have more miles of climbing, but this place is special.) Above is a screenshot from my Garmin Connect. The info is off of a Garmin Edge 705 and a Quarq Cinqo crank mounted power meter.
After I finished training for the day (including a stretch and some calories) Uncle Bob (a.k.a Bear) gave me a guitar lesson (I’m learning to play Jimmy Buffet – Another Hotel Room), then took me out whale watching. We saw a few whales coming up for air, but nothing like the full on jumping breaches I saw a few days ago when I didn’t have my camera.
There’s the I <3 BC “don’t frown” design, the pink unicorn bencollins.org design (which I’m calling Unicorn Planet, though if you google Unicorn Planet, you’ll get something a little different) and the ever so Valentine’s appropriate < CB+BC 3 (that’s an attempt at a text heart around the initials – I accidentally wrote “CD” there last night, and this morning I ad an angry email…) plus butt kisses. Can you guess which design I made? Oh, and all three have unicorns front and center. I’ve said it before, unicorns totally kick a**.
I can’t decide which one to wear tomorrow!!! Rachel Ross is going to be there, so I have to look good. Otherwise I’ll hear about it from Courtenay, who will have heard about it via stalkerbook from RR.
