Enjoying the Nice Weather

Of course while I am training for Austin we get a cold spell that forces me indoors or to ride and run with countless layers on now that it is time relax and recover we get close to record temps and have not seem rain in a long time. This last weekend I was able to ride in shorts and jersey and was still sweating where this time last year we were digging out from the first snowfall of the year.

With my knee feeling a lot better I decided to head out for a mountain bike ride with Tyler Lord, Andrew Woegerer and Brian. We went to the Pines close to Belfountain and had a great ride, the trails were dry an were in great shape. It was the most fun I have had on a ride in a long time and it was great to get back out on the mountain bike. I did end up getting a flat about 200m from the end of the ride which was actually the first flat of the year, I kept on meaning to say that but I did not want to jinx myself but now that the streak is over I thought I would mention it. I would have to attribute it to the tuffy's I keep in my tires year round and changing tires when they become damaged. thanks to the guys at Gears Bike Shop for keeping me going.
This is not from this weekend the pic is from a few years ago but was the only one of me mountain biking I have!!! (notice the front wheel!!!)

Going to run tomorrow at York and test out the knee again, I think it will be fine but I will still take it easy. I am really looking forward to getting back into the grove.
