Been riding and walking. The HEAT is on now, so we'll see how to work in and around that. Yesterday I got antsy after the Germany/Italy game, so I jumped on the Troll and headed west in the 102F heat, probably my hottest bike ride every, or at least I can remember. I'm usually hit-n-miss on water consumption, but I sucked down 3 bottles in 30 miles and my eyes dried out. Strange. On the return I picked up Dave at Quill's and we did a loop through the park into St. Matthews and back to complete the total.
Wednesday, again antsy in the p.m. I jumped on the Troll and headed down to the river to take a look at the MTB Short Track Series, basically races on the 'cross course but on required mtbikes. As I stated to Dave yesterday, I can completely appreciate have *already* achieved the necessary fitness to be able to race. Whether I want to put in the effort to get to that point, I'm not sure. It was fun, though, and I got some good pics of Lithodale, BenK and MichaelS. I also ran into Derek from OYLC and a neighbor whose grandkids were involved somehow.
I'm within 50m of topping 600 for the month and I have 2 days to do it. It's awfully hot outside.
