Oops! Did I forget to train for that?
So, the other day I am looking at my event calendar and I see that on November 15th I have a 100 mile ride scheduled in Solvang with LA Run buddy. No biggie. It's been there for months. Let's see that is ....
2 weeks away!
Hmm ... NOW we have a problem.
You may have noticed I haven't blogged about much cycling lately. Well, that is only because I have not been doing very much cycling lately. Oops.
In light of this, I have toned down my plans to the 100K ride (62.5 miles) which will still be the longest ride I have ever done and a stretch or me, but less likely to, umm.., KILL me.
I am running the 25K at the Stinson Beach Trail Run. There is a 100% chance of rain and a slight chance of thunderstorms (really, pretty rare in California). I don't think I have ever seen the weather forecast say 100% chance. That isn't really a 'chance' then, is it?
Whatever. I have a hat.
