This can't be good

The pain I've been feeling from 1) Running 4 miles and 2) Lifting upper body weights for 30 minutes has been UNREAL!!! Am I really that out of anything-but-cycling shape?? It's kind of scary how sore I have been :) On a positive note, though, Eddie and I got to play on the Snake (Snake Creek Gap) yesterday. 2.5 hours of rocks, rocks, and more rocks. The trail conditions were very dry and sandy..made for some tough steep climbing and sketchy descending. It was probably a bad day to choose that trail after lifting weights as my entire upper body was really fatigued..making for a tough ride with all the rocks on the trail. I guess I will have to mix in some yoga and core/upper body strength this fall and winter.

I think we're heading to TN this weekend to ride some new trails!! Fun. Eddie will be on the orange Jabberwocky!!! I think he's finally warming up to the idea of big boy wheels :)

I go through the same thing whenever I pick up the weights after a long absence. Have fun this weekend. Can't wait to hear about the new trails.
