sometimes you have to stop and smell the chamois butter

The Sunday forecast taunted me with temperatures near fifty. I decided to forgo the "Church of the Sweet Ride" feeling I needed more penance on the legs and less on the back. I chose to flog myself by heading out toward Canyonlands and coming back via Gemini Bridges.
It was pretty quiet out there. Once I turned on to Gemini rd, I only saw one vehicle. It was a great day to put in some hours, despite the clouds holding back the warmth of the sun. I ended up back at the house with nearly four solid hours of pedaling. Although I was psyched to end up with the saddle time, I was starving and luckily caught Lisa via phone at the pizza joint. I beat her home and pretty much ate what I could find until she arrived. Then I devoured giant slices of pizza until I couldn't get off the couch. Now that's training!
