#30daysofbiking Day 13: triathlon Tuesday
This has become the only kind of triathlon I will partake in. Swim, bike, read. 😉
My usual Tueday routine of riding to the pool for a swim, and the rather loathed routine of weights and strength training. I would much rather be in the pool or outside riding, but kind of like brushing my teeth, I visit the weight room for the sake of bone density preservation (and it probably doesn’t hurt cycling/skiing/swimming-wise, either). Gee, I love getting old.
I also had one of my typical moments of sheer genius today – left the house with camera(s) in hand … only to discover that I had left both batteries in the wall-chargers. Apparently I need some strength training in my brain muscles. So – no batteries, no pictures – except for these rather messy things I took with my iPhone. FTW! 😛
On the way home I decided to stop at the bookstore, in search of a good book on photographic composition. As is typically the case, I left the store with not one, but four books in hand. Not all photography books, but still – ridiculous lack of self control when it comes to books.
One of my twitter cycling friends, Kerstin (@Kittydew) – who is a brilliant illustrator and computer/graphics design instructor, as well as an awesome cyclist – has been working far too hard lately. (Quite unlike myself, as you can tell). So I told her I would take a scenic detour on her behalf during today’s ride. And I did. Took the long(er) way home, along Candies Creek Ridge Road. And I will apologize to her in advance for the absence of some nice pictures of “her ride”. Stupid, stupid battery-less me. iPhone is all you get, my friend.
Now to sit down with the new books….
