I know I said I was going to be all about the cycling this weekend.
Unfortunately, with the unpredictable (and crappy) weather, and the work that has popped up that I have to do before I leave for the Bay area Tuesday I won't be able to organize anything this weekend.
I'm still going to try to make it out, but I have no idea what time or place it will be. The weather looks SO sketchy this weekend. Since this is a big time recovery week I'm not interested in toughing it through another 70 miles in the cold and rain. There will be plenty of time for that in the next 9 months I'm sure!
On a positive note, I met with Coach Angela this week and I am SOOOOO excited to start my training. I'm officially starting on Oct 1. I need to give my knees some more time to heal. I did a trial 2 miles on the treadmill and it wasn't good. (another reason I'm not excited about the cycling. It can aggravate the patella too). So for this week I am going to focus on the elliptical trainer and weight training. I think that my hotel should be able to accomodate that.
Before I leave I have one task for the bloggers of the word:
NAME MY BIKE:
The Cervelo (Dual, 06 silver with black and white decals) needs a name. I have decided a couple things about personality:
She is one high maintenance bitch
So my ideas so far:
Prima (as for Prima donna)
Help me out people!
