Long Run - Not

Cycling - 12.25 / 56:00

My hamstring was still bugging me off and on yesterday. I figured I'd ride my "long" day instead. I wanted to do a 2 hour, 25 mile ride - city trails. However, our 2 year old was up until midnight and off and on from there, so at midnight, I re-set my alarm from 4:45 to 5:45.

Pouring rain the whole time. My first ride in actual rain versus just sprinkles. Not bad - refreshing, really. I had zipper-top baggied all my un-wettables, so no worries.

Took my bike in for the 30 day tune up. I haven't ridden it all that much but did have close to 100 miles on it. I promptly set out for another ride this evening and got caught in a torrential downpour. Due to decreased visibility, I ran over some glass and shredded my front tire. I was trying to get to the bike path and had to follow a mile of city streets to get there.

God bless my hubby for the emergency pick up!
