Last night I debated going to the pool for the optional recovery swim or skipping it.  Obviously I decided to go.  The main factors were (1) new goggles to adjust.  I didn't want to mess with them during masters. (2) Rain in the forecast so the morning walk was questionable at best.

Regarding the goggles, I've been using Aqua Sphere Kaiman Ladies (does "lady" equal size small?) but I wanted to try the Aqua Sphere K-180s so I got one of each.  Today I tried the K-180s.  My cheek bones feel a little bit puffy from pollen overload but I think that they might be good?  We'll see.

Beaver Creek-Carpenter Firestation

Another windy spring day! I took Old 1 to Beaver Creek then continue past Martha's Chapel to the Lystra gas station and decided that I really need to get out of the headwind (I had been considering going up to Mt. Carmel Church), went back to Martha's Chapel and continue to Green Level but went the long way on Carpenter Firestation. Overall, I enjoyed the ride. Other riders were saying blah blah blah The Wind blah blah at Wilsonville so it wasn't just me!

Nice ride! Summer-like weather today meant that we had a big group so instead of just me and Mike B., it was a bigger crew. It was good to see Dayn and Big Tom. I finished with Frederike and Kevin J., Mike B. and two others.
