Morning Swim

By |2021-03-22T10:18:12-07:00August 31st, 2020|

I didn’t wake up in time to ride with the Old Kranks, even though I had gone to bed early the night before. I stayed in bed till 9:00 and then I got up and I was trying to decide what to do. The temperature was cool, so I could ride my bike. I thought about where I would like to ride and then I just decided to go for a swim again! So I headed down to the pool and I got in quite a number of laps. It was a good day for a swim. I wonder what [...]

And Another Swim

By |2021-03-22T10:17:05-07:00August 30th, 2020|

Even though I swam yesterday, I felt like swimming again. The pool was clean and the temperature was perfect. Each day I swim longer and faster. It was a good day to be in the pool.

Another Swim

By |2021-03-22T10:16:05-07:00August 29th, 2020|

I wasn’t going to swim, but when I went down to help Natalie put money on her laundry card, and I saw the pool, I couldn’t resist. I came upstairs, put on my bathing suit and went down for a swim. The temperature of the pool was perfect. I could just slip right in. I did quite a few laps. I always feel good after I swim. I came upstairs and relaxed for the rest of the day.

Time for a Swim

By |2021-03-22T10:15:00-07:00August 27th, 2020|

My call time for PDP was 12:15, so I decided to go for a swim in the morning. I hadn’t ridden my bike all week, so I was glad that I had time to go for a swim. I was a little bit slow, but it was good for my muscles to be in the pool.

Pedaling Zuma

By |2021-03-22T10:13:24-07:00August 21st, 2020|

I didn’t wake up in time for a ride with the Old Kranks, but instead I headed to Zuma. I parked at the private beach and then I rode up and down the beach, clipping in and out of my pedals. I had a really good time too. I ended up logging in 103 miles for the week! The best week ever!

New Pedals

By |2021-03-22T10:05:51-07:00August 20th, 2020|

Today, I went to Wheel World. I got my new pedals put on. John gave me really good advice on how to clip in and clip out, toe slides in, heel down and when I try to clip out I turn my foot outward. That was really good advice. He also put the mirror on my sunglasses. I bought a pouch to keep my phone in and John attached that to my bike too. Then I went over to Marylee and practiced with my new pedals. I rode about 5 miles. I forgot to turn on Strava, so it only [...]

My Favorite Ride

By |2021-03-22T10:01:28-07:00August 19th, 2020|

I rode the WAR ride with the Old Kranks. It was my favorite ride. We rode up the coast. I ended up getting lost! But then I found the group.

Advice from Barbara

By |2021-03-22T09:59:51-07:00August 17th, 2020|

I rode with the Old Kranks. I rode with the fast group. I am really keeping a good pace with this group. At one point I lost the group, but I was behind Barbara. I ended up riding with her for the rest of the ride. We took some new streets and then we stopped back at Gelson’s for a bathroom break. We had clocked about 12 miles, but that was not enough. We headed back to the lake. Barbara and I had a chance to talk and I am glad we did. She gave me quite a few good [...]

I did it again. I woke up early and decided to go for another swim. Every time I go out to the pool I get in more and more laps. We were having a heatwave, so the pool was the best place to be.

It was going to be hot, so I went for a swim again! I got out there really early before the kids got there and I had a really good swim. I love my cycling, but swimming is really, really refreshing and I felt great for the whole day.
