54 Miler Around Bear Lake: Fail
I was really disappointed by this. I had looked forward to finally getting outside for so long. My legs are feeling pretty weak so I thought this would be the perfect introductory ride into the season. I tried to focus on the snow and the cold and how miserable I would have been out there so I wasn't as sad, but I must admit that I was still pretty bummed out.
I was so ready to ride last week that I'm even more stoked to go this week. My husband and I have already planned a nice and challenging ride for this weekend. Hopefully we hit around 30+ miles. I need to get out and kill it on that bike because I'm hoping to ride with some friends at work in a few weeks. They are planning a ride from Bluffdale to Ogden. It's a fairly flat ride but it's about 65 miles. After four months of not riding, I don't know if I'll be up for it.
On a completely unrelated note... I am a pretty faithful reader of Fat Cyclist. Today, he had a live chat on his website with the guys of T6 (Twin Six). I was excited because I got to participate! I was pretty nervous to ask Fatty a question because I figured he'd get so many chats and ignore mine, but he responded to all my questions! This isn't the half of it. Tomorrow, the one and only, Johan Bruyneel will be chatting with Fatty and anyone that has a question for him right on Fatty's website!! I am so excited. I have been a huge fan of Johan's for years now and I can't wait for the opportunity to ask him some questions and see what he has to say... live!! If any of you want to join, just go to Fat Cyclist's website at 5:30 PM (ET) / 2:30 PM (PT).
