It was colder than I expected this morning for the ride. I though I dressed warm enough but I was not prepared. The Boy Scouts would be upset with me.
I did try and ride away with nothing but long cycling pants, arm warmers and 2 shirts but that was not enough. I went back to the car and put on my windbreaker. Now, that was better.
At least for the first 15 minutes. Then I found that I could not feel my fingers. I was still wearing my cycling gloves with no fingers. Duh!!!!! So I pulled into Walmart and bought a cheap set of garden gloves. That made it all better ---- at least for the next 10 miles. Then I could not feel my toes anymore. GEEZ it wasn't that cold out.
Anyway - I made it back - my time was terrible but hey the ice hanging from my feet made it hard to pedal. Yeah Right!!!! Hey it's my excuse not yours !!!!!
Tomorrow I am heading to the pool in the morning and then to Pueblo. I am having a test done on my heart. No nothing is wrong. But with my family history I though getting a CT Cardiac Scan would be a good baseline for me. It will also work into my plans for future VO2 max and Lactate Threshold testing later this year. The test tomorrow is Brand New and generates a 3D view of the heart to look at cardiac function and cardiac vessels. I am pretty stoked about getting this done. I'll post some pictures if possible sometime next week.
Ringraziare il dio per cioccolato!!
