In more ways than one, I suppose.
Had a great 2 week break from work over the holidays. Maybe too great
Sure, I got some miles in and made some goals but I would hardly say I was following my normal regimen
Didn't ride as far, didn't ride as hard but I did ride. I'll take what I can get!
Still, I went out today to tackle my favorite climb (Sharp Park Road. Why? More on that in a bit) and the legs were just... not... there. It was like my first time. Oh well, next week it's back to work, back to my normal schedule and try to drop a couple of pounds and get back into shape again.
Mrs S took good care of me this year and gave me an iPod shuffle, a RoadID (she really cares!) and an Oregon Scientific Action Cam. Yahoo! I tried to time the rain yesterday and get some "action" but I missed it and ended up getting wet.
Then I got home and accidently deleted my movies. Nuts.
So I had to go out again to today and shoot some of my favorite spots.
Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day.

I've talked a lot about Sharp Park Road, I know, but the 10 or 15 minutes of pain on the way up are worth it... because then you get the ride down.
And here it is... 15 minutes up, 3 minutes down. I hit a top speed of about 43 mph at one point.
Enjoy. I have more
