|Good GTDRI training!|
This time Craig Irving made the trip up again to grind gravel north, east, and south again. I appreciated the company and the chance to get to know him better.
I gotta say though- he has more event ideas popping outta his head than anyone I know. Every one of them sounded cool too. Cool to the point that I might actually consider doing any one of them. Anyway, all the ideas and chatting made the two hour ride seem easy, although my legs were burning the entire time. The running around for the Salsa Cycles Demo Tour and riding back and forth to work had already added up to several miles over my usual daily requirement of cycling. Adding 3GR miles the next day was over the top.

I then had to ride the seven or so miles back home for a total of 40.13 miles just for this 3GR. I peeled myself outta my cycling kit, showered, ate, and then spent the rest of the day in a semi-comatose state.
I normally do not like to be inactive, or to not accomplish things during the day, but this time I had to go lay down and take a nap. Falling asleep while basically struggling to just sit around was pretty much the tell-tale sign that I needed the rare daytime nap. So....whatta ya gonna do?
I figure it is good training for the Guitar Ted Death Ride Invitational coming up in a couple of weeks.
