Well, I took last Thursday and Friday off riding, and took the bus into work. I also skipped my weekend training ride, to spend the weekend with the ladies. It was nice, and my legs needed the rest. I tried to ride yesterday, but couldn't shift. I made the mistake of putting the bike away wet last Wednesday when I came home, and the deraileurs and brakes are a little tight - they need to be cleaned, lubed and adjusted. I cleaned the bike off last night as best I could, and rode in this morning. My brakes really need to be adjusted. So I'm going over to Tomas' this evening so he can work on my bike and show me how to do it myself.

The plan for this week is to ride to and from work all week, then do 105 miles on Sunday, riding out to the decommissioned Trojan Nuclear Power Plant and back. I went from 54 miles to 74 miles without any issues, so it's time to see what a full century does to my body. I'll feel very justified getting a big chocolate ice cream on the way home.
