Saturday Rides and Randomness...

I hit all my training this week which felt really good!  Motivation is in full effect!  I was a little worried how my new crossfit love might incorporate into it but it seemed to fill in just fine.  For the most part, I did my normal triathlon related workouts in the AM and then did crossfit 4 times this week in the afternoon.  Right now, I am in the "this is new and fun and I want to go all the time" stage but I know that isn't smart so am limiting myself to 4 times a week.  May drop it to 3 if my other workouts seem like they are going to suffer.  Just trying to be smart about it while remembering that the real goal is doing well at my upcoming races.  


Speaking of upcoming races...  It is looking like it is going to be a Rev3 kind of year.  That race in Williamsburg has been calling me since it was announced.  I have always wanted to go to Williamsburg and, well, now that there is a race there it just seems like a good excuse to go!  I officially added that one to the race roster this week.  

Saturday, I met up with my group for a ride at Silk Sheets.  (crazy name isn't it?)  It is on the opposite side of town from me and for that reason have never hauled myself out there to ride the course despite how much I had heard about it.  Once we hit the roads on our bikes, I realized that it pretty much was the same kind of course that I love so much and ride in Dacula.  Nice country roads, farms, low traffic and rolling hills.  There was only one dog - a rather large German Shepherd in the road but thankfully he was not interested in the chase.  The perfect place to ride.  If you live in Atlanta on the south side, I highly recommend it!  If you are up in Gwinnett or on the north side, give me a shout and I can send you the map for the Dacula ride to save you some gas :)    


... and in honor of the number of eggs it seems like I have been eating lately, I thought this was funny.  Hope you guys had an awesome weekend :)

It's always nice to find new courses to ride! Glad you finally got over there and that it turned out to be just as good as the hype.

I can't blame you on being pulled in by Williamsburg. I'm always intrigued by new races that pop up.

New courses are always fun to find! I've heard of that one but never understood the name.

I've been eating tons of eggs too.

The ride sounds great! I love finding (or being introduced to) new routes.

I'm glad you found a great ride, but we still need to do that Dacula route you sent me. I've ridden out there several times, and it is some pretty good riding. We'll have to plan a time when the weather is good.

I've never heard of Silky Sheets but it made me smile. :) Glad you had a good ride. We'd love the route in Dacula. Well... Tom would love it.

Yay for still loving Cross Fit. Can't wait to talk to you about it!

Silk Sheets if one of my favorite rides. The 50 miles option rocks! Eggs, yep, a dozen a week or more :)
