Due to my hectic daily schedule of running between class and my lab, I have started riding my bike around Charlottesville for the first time. I’ve had this bike with me at school for the past 3 years, but never really rode it because a) I’m terrified of getting hit by a car and b) I never really felt the need to. But now, biking has become a necessity and I’ve found that I actually really enjoy it. It’s fun and feels like I’m getting a work out whenever I go anywhere (ooh, my booty muscles be burnin’!).
Here’s a pic of me and lil’ Miss Sunshine:
Siq. And I haven’t gotten hit by a car yet (though I’ve had a couple close calls :o).
On another note, Hound Ears is this weekend!!!! I’m super psyched!!!!
I went home this past weekend to renew my driver’s license and got to climb at Sportrock for a couple days. My sessions were not very structured, but I felt like I got a lot out of them because the problems are so much burlier there than at Peak. I worked through a lot of powerful moves and tried to get out of route/hesitation mode and more into GOGOGO mode. I am going to Peak tomorrow where I will try and do some power endurance in the boulder area and then probably head up to the systems board to work on big moves. Wednesday will entail cardio and core, then Thursday I will probably just do an easy run. Friday I leave for Boone! AHHHH!!!!!
