to

5/24/10-5/30/10:

Monday: Slightly extended Glendale loop with Heather. 26.

Tuesday: Chantry Flats (to the helipad!) with Julian. A pretty good ride. We saw another cyclist who spoke of riding to the helipad from the gate three times. He used to race, apparently. It was quite impressive. I'll say 22. But I'm not actually sure. And there was climbing!

Wednesday: Decided cycling was a terrible idea given that I was having severe difficulties staying awake. Also it was rush hour. Ran Huntington. Painfully slow. But I guess we've all got to start somewhere. 5.

Thursday: Tried to bike, but it started drizzling as soon as I got my bike. I was upset, and ran instead. Excruciatingly sluggish. 5.

Friday: Art Center Loop, back through South Pas. Easy. 18.

Saturday: Off.

Sunday: Off.

5/17/10-5/23/10:

Monday: Off

Tuesday: Lacy the Long Way at 10 in the pm with Justine. 4.

Wednesday: A little lifting (I'm just trying to pretend I still get exercise here...).

Thursday: Art Center Loop. 15. I tipped over again. It was really upsetting. I didn't realize there was a cyclist behind me, tried to U-turn, was alerted to the cyclist, panicked, stop abruptly without clipping out and promptly fell over. :/ It was kind of embarrassing.

Friday: Testing the waters. Madre. Really slow. Sore on Saturday. Sad face. 5.

Saturday: Glendale Loop extended a bit with Julian. I'll say 26.

Sunday: Off. Work.

5/10/10-5/16/10:

Monday: Art Center Loop. Mainly wanted to have done "something." 17.5.

Tuesday: Glendale Loop. I was falling asleep on my ride. 24.

Wednesday: I ran! Courtesy of JXC. And it was not terrible, except for being out of shape. Like, I don't remember the last time Huntington was such an ordeal, fitness-wise. I think I will be a running one once or twice a week. Perhaps. We'll see. 5.

Thursday: I was going to run, but then my shin persuaded me not to. So I biked instead. Glendale with a detour due to road closures. 26.

Friday: Started using clipless pedals! I don't understand all the fuss about falling over. I mean, I fell over (after specifically resolving not to). But I feel like a much greater difficulty was clipping back in after clipping out. I could never get started again. :/ Art Center Loop. 20.

Saturday: Off

Sunday: Off

This place is so empty.

5/3/10-5/9/10:

Monday: Up Chantry a-ways with Heather. Good to get out. Approximately 20.

Tuesday: Fail-explored the area above the Rose Bowl-ish with Stephanie. About 27.

Wednesday: Art Center Loop. Let's call this 17.

Thursday: Because I didn't do anything else, I'll log a little bit of lifting and abs.

Friday: Sleepy. No idea why. Glendale. 24.

Saturday: Ride towards the beach with Justine and Julian! Relatively flat though. A pleasant day. About 47. Went to Kevin/Robin's barbeque afterwards. So not especially productive. Hmm...

Sunday: Really I just wanted have done "something"... No climbing. 15.
