Just a quick note to say that my ex has invited me to go mushroom hunting with him! Apparently candy-cane, boletes, and other mushrooms are sprouting in abundance after last week’s heavy rains, and his property is full of more mushrooms than he can eat. So I am going up there on Saturday, after my training ride, to hunt mushrooms.
Also, I am psyched to say that I may have talked one of my friends into doing the AIDS Ride with me! He’s still waffling, but I think he’s getting really excited about the idea of doing it…that would be way cool! (Not least because it would mean I wouldn’t have to find a tentmate.) I’m taking him to the AIDS Lifecycle kickoff party on Sunday.
Tomorrow I go down to see my coach, who will wire me up and do all sorts of exciting (and sweaty, exhausting) tests to see what my fitness level is, and whether my bike needs to be fitted again. He’s also going to show me some cycling-specific exercises to keep the knee from getting out of sorts again.
