    I'm going to cry.

    Indoor training all week, only to get blue balls for the weekend.

    Friday

    57F | 42F

    Saturday

    48F | 42F

    Sunday

    53F | 43F

    Any new movie recommendations? Since I'll be sitting on the trainer for 2 hours on Saturday morning, it's a good time to catch a flick.

    Who's with me?

    I had to spend the majority of Jan riding my rollers....I found action movies to be the best relief, they don't really require you to pay attention but are fun enough to keep you distracted. I re-watched all the Borne movies..last two Batman flix...Indiana Jones 1 and 3 were all good fun.

    I just got a new rain jacket, so I'm going to get a nice chance to test it out.

    30mph sustained winds here today. 45mph gusts. I'll take the rain before wind, not a fan of getting blown into cars.

    I seem to have a knack for scheduling rest weeks

    Racing Saturday, but I'll be dry and warm and indoors on Sunday. Celebrating our five-year anniversary (and yes I scheduled our celebration around my training schedule because I'm a horrible girlfriend).
    You're not punk, and I'm telling everyone.

    I wouldn't have a problem with that.

    Not sure if I'll race or just ride in the rain this weekend.

    +1

    Wake up at 5:30am, get in 4 or 5 hours of training, get home and go over wedding plans.

    I'm in the Puget Sound area. Basically, ride in the rain or don't ride at all.
