Thursday, Jan 28th, 2010

I don't know where Wednesday, the 27th went, but I remember it was a good ride. Two loops of Rancho Vistoso, 260w and 259w average. I thought it was uphill only, going North, but I was surprised to find out that both North- and Southbound were kind of undulating. But it feels much harder doing the wattage, going downhill, that's for sure. Uphill and a power meter is a sweet combination. 110 km in 3.30.

Right before I went to sleep it was time for a Birthday greeting to Katrine, since she'll be waking up in the next hour or so, probably making muffins. She's got' em on her mind (lucky me!) and makes blueberry muffins worth killing for, or making just going back for. She had so many greetings on Facebook that it's gotta be real, in an unreal way though... It feels kind of weird to constantly be eight hours behind, when you start to think about it, which I better not. I went to bed to the sound of heavy rain and to my big surprise it was still pouring down when I woke up at 7 a.m.. Canceling the planned ride up Mt. Lemmon wasn't too hard as I'm on a "want to" program over here, compared to a "have to" program. The inclement weather was supposed to wane about noon, but it kept on drizzling and I was having none of it. Instead I kept snacking and peaking out of the window to see some clearance. It never happened, so instead I ran for 30 minutes, feeling bloated. Peter and Dan are about to board their first flight of three, to Amsterdam, then Denver and finally Tucson, which should see some nice warm +20 degrees weather for the next ten days.
