Nice group ride. The Hammer Heads took off and then there was everyone else. Normally there is a Hammer Head group and then a B group. Anyway, I road with "everyone else." There were six of us. Three turned back early and three others continued on until the turnaround time and we headed back. There were too many lights/traffic on the way out so we ended up getting done well before sunset. Could have gotten a few more miles in.


√ Ride tonight!

Huh.  My run from last night disappeared.  I must not have saved it.  Putting it in now...

It's about time to replace my running shoes.  I went to Fleet Feet and asked when the Ghost 7s are expected to be out.  June.  Well, I can't wait that long so I got another pair of Ghost 6s.  I loved the 4s, liked the 5s and just not in love with the 6s.  I'll start breaking them in with the orthotics next week.

    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!
