Back at it...

Well...sort of...
Seeing as I cannot back down from a challenge, Junior Management told me that I couldn't punt a soccer ball the length of their field. It's about 60m.
I grabbed a ball & pulled the laces tight on my futbol boots. Did I mention I did NOT warm up...at all?
Yeah...
Not wanting to take more than one try, I backed up, took 5 steps, and let it rip. The ball flew high, and straight, clearing the goal at the other end of the field.
I also hyper-extended my right knee in the process. Not badly, but enough to limp around, and put very little power to the pedal...not that there was much to begin with...

I rode Tuesday...gingerly. Small gears. A LOT of spinning. As the knee feels a little better today, I went ONE cog bigger on the back this morning. Didn't "hurt" per se, but there's definitely some stiffness.
It's freaking beautiful outside...

 55 and sunny. Just some Mad Alchemy on the legs....
No Garmin. No care. Just ride...

Knocked down almost two hours both days. Riding in the sunshine beats strapping the lights on the bike...EVERY time.
I'll show at a few night rides, but they'll be few, and far between...

And as usual, I made it almost all the way home before having a run in with a driver. Some dumbass Shandon mommy, likely on her way home from a stretching "workout" @ barre3 & yapping on her phone, decided that she had the right of way in her Volvo SUV, and turned right in front of me. And yes, I had the right of way...
This is for you dear. Bless your heart.

Shut up and take my money!

And with that, I'm out...
