just once because I had to leave early. Windy and cold today. Decided to lay off of running / walking for a few days and see if I can get the knee back to normal. It didn't hurt this morning. I guess the ride yesterday was good for it.


drove to Fort Davis to meet with the Prude Ranch group coordinator to see what we can do to make Cyclefest a better event.  Also to see what we can do about the hamburger dinner idea.  I asked her to walk with me around the area.  I could see why they want to use the Pavillion for the BBQ.  It's clearly the best venue.  She could see why I thought it's way, way too far from the road and the center of the cycling activities.  I hope she can work out something with her boss.  I'm not sure I can afford to spend another day away from work just to drive down there to meet again for an hour. 

I also found out how under utilized the ranch lodging is during our event.  I'll see what I can do about that.  They've got at least 30 unused hotel rooms.  We should surely fill those.  Try to get more people to utilize the breakfast on Saturday and Sunday.

1st big group ride. This ride is mostly downhill with just a couple of little climbs. Managed to get behind Doug and hang on. Tons of tail wind, still lots of time in the top of the big ring and just fun. I've got strength, just not much endurance. I took a few pulls, and near the end I took several when I knew that I wouldn't become a drag on the group. Way fun. Mostly it was three of us hammering and all wearing same kit makes it feel like a team. We finally caught Fred and he joined us. The other guy was a bit of a squirrel, so I just left some extra room. The one time I dropped off the back they waited up for me. Nice!

And that speed, I did mention that it is down hill. In the very beginning it was downhill and with the wind - My favorite. We hit 40 mph on one little stretch. :)

Already distance is easier, and speed really hasn't suffered. Only my ego. :)


I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples. - Mother Teresa

I've been thinking about this lately.  Have I cast all the stones that I have?  What new stones can I pick up?  What good can I do in this world?  Why am I here, besides to enjoy myself?  What can I do to make life better for those around me?  I don't know, but I'm thinking about it.

Remembered to ice my knee last night but it was late and it hadn't hurt most of the afternoon and I was already in bed so I skipped it.  It's sensitive today.  Hurts when I walk, but it's still better than a week ago. Pain is slight with straight leg stretch, and that hurt a bunch on Monday.

The usual stretching with a bunch of piriformus stretching and lotus sitting.

Seminar all day starting at 7:30 in the morning.  Rest day.  Will swim and 'run' tomorrow.

Not so windy as last week. Kept my head on and dropped out of the lead before pulling all the way out of town. Somehow I kept ending up in the front pack. Followed them out of town, but when they picked it up my legs were done. I think I've now got almost 70 miles for the year. It's just going to take some time and some mileage. When I reach 1000 miles then I can start training. I would like to try riding like every morning for a week and see what that does for me.

Rode it in by myself, I didn't want to go farther with the second group. Too early in the season for me yet. I've got a 15 mile club ride this weekend that I'm really looking forward to.

Walking in the neighborhood. Still babying knee. Icing and ibuprofen are helping
