My mom is here visiting and she watched me assembling my bike and couldn't figure out why I had three.
Are you going to sell one? No.
But you have THREE. Yes. But that one is a road bike. And this is the one I race on. And that is the one I train on.
I'm not sure she got it but it made perfect sense to me! :)
I'm still trying to recover from my two weeks in AZ and seem to be getting better each day. I am finally not looking like a marshmallow. What is that anyway that causes you to swell up like a balloon when you train a lot? Something about ADH I think but I'll admit I don't understand exactly what that's all about. All I know is that we should never weigh ourselves immediately after a big training weekend. Anyway, in good news I have ankles now and even a few veins.
Finally downloaded all my data from my garmin tonight too. It took like an hour! Fun to geek out on all the graphs. There was a good amount of climbing done in both Tucson and Scottsdale... total climbing (riding) ~26,000ft which is a lot for me given that I ride flat most of the time! I think one of the things that has been sort of missing in my training is variety (hello I live on an island) so the different terrain was awesome.

Looking at these graphs leaves me feeling even more nostalgic for that awesome riding in AZ!
