Feeling better. Still a bit under the weather, but I think the rest has been good for me.
While I haven't been running, I have been analyzing my running. Decided to look at the elevation profile for my usual route. Aha!! It's downhill from my house to the ditch bank and uphill on the way home.
There you have it. My new excuse for I head out too fast and end up sucking air on the way back in. Gravity.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I also got tired of looking at my poor pitiful bike with the flat tire. Moved it out in the garage so I wouldn't have to look at it. Ha!
Quickly decided that wasn't such a good plan and brought it back in the house. D'oh!
This morning I flipped it upside down and realized that the rear tire tread is really worn. Seems that replacing both the tube and the tire is in order. Haven't done it yet, but everything (pump, tube, tire) is in the house waiting for me to take action.
Haven't been doing much more than sleeping, so that's all I've got for now. Enjoy your day, folks!
