Morning ride at Pope. 4x loops.

Started off kind of easy, riding with Mike and his son. Then, rode with Ben for a little while, REALLY pushing one loop hard...maybe too hard. Finally, rode with Tim for 1.5 loops, struggling to keep up. Good day of riding.

-Update-
Was going to run during lunch, but decided that it'd probably be better to veg. Legs are tired from this morning's ride.

Early morning Pope Air Base ride.

It was raining when I got there and I almost bagged the ride. In fact, I took my bike out of the car, set it up, then put back in when it looked like it'd start to rain harder. I sat there for a moment, then said, "Screw it!". So, I took the bike back out and rode in a light rain for most of this ride. Moderate effort, but pushed the hills.

I can't race Oak Hollow. Bummer.

Decent week of training...finally.

Felt as though this run wasn't going to be good, but loosened up and felt great towards the end.

Reserves, Fort Gordon.

Got out to the ride start and realized I didn't have a pump. Grrr. Tires were noticeably low, maybe around 80psi, but decided to ride anyways. While the ride was smoother than normal, effort was a little bit tougher. I was wary on descents b/c I did not want to push the limits of an under-inflated tired.

Friday - August 15

---
Travel day to Ft. Gordon.

Nice day to rest.
