Rest week

I was gone on a retreat from Monday through Thursday, but I did take my bike along and I got in two rides, both of which took me to a state park on the Long Island Sound with beautiful water views.  The first ride I was out exploring on my own, but on the second ride I ran into another rider early on who volunteered to show me the back roads way to the park, so we rode together for an hour, chatting about riding and racing.  It was kind of fun to have a conversation with a random stranger like this — it happens relatively often, actually, and usually I meet nice people.

I rode for 1:15 yesterday too and today I’m resting for tomorrow’s race up in Hartford.  It’s a women’s open, which means it will be a challenge, but last year I finished the race without too much trouble and I’m hoping to do the same again.
