They can't all be good rides

First, Saturday, I took on another Brick of Doom. That's right: 2.5 mi run, 30 mi bike, 2.5 mi run, 30 mi bike, 2 mi run. Phew. 4.5 hours later, it was done. Special thanks to Jeff from BPC for taking this on after 6 weeks off the bike.

Then on Sunday, Paul and I joined a few other triathletes for our first ride together since the Prouty. Not our most successful ride:

  1. We couldn't find the key to one of the bike racks to lock the bike on.
  2. We couldn't find the key to unlock Paul's bike from the bike rack.
  3. The local bike shop wasn't open to try to get a spare key from.
  4. Paul took his first (and second) tumble while being clipped in (had to happen some time).
  5. Paul's back wheel was not true and was rubbing on his brake.
  6. Paul's waterbottle cage was loose and rattling.
  7. Our 28 mile loop was actually 34. And I missed a turn and took us an additional half mile.
  8. Paul was out of water and ready to be done at 25 miles.
But we made it. The next ride can only get better from here, right?
