The party continued this morning when I took some brownies to our departmental staff, and to the staff of another department. These folks are just great, the sorts of staff folks who make the whole community a better place.
And then I went for a bike ride to explore a bit with some friends. We found an overlook for a local dam (but I was walking my bike at that point, because my skinny tires just aren't made for off-roading). It was a fun ride. As long as I was just spinning on a near flat, it was great, but every time I hit even a slight upslope, my legs were complaining. We had a bit of a sprint near the end, and I hit 25.2. I think I'm going to play a bit more with the sprinting, because at this point I think my improvement is mostly just getting in the right gear to really stand up and power things up a bit, and that's just a bit of practice. (I think Mark Cavendish can rest easy, though.)
And then we had lunch. Yum!
And now I'm being lazy. I really need to go mow the back lawn, but just thinking about it makes my legs complain.
I dropped off the check for my birthday present beginning yoga classes!
And, I chatted with my sister in law, who is the best. All is good. I'm so lucky my sibling married someone wonderful.
