I feel out of the loop…my own loop weirdly.
I have moved on from obsessing about the crack in my Orbea frame. I will say that the entire frame is on its way to Orbea to be inspected and then replaced. I am sure they want to confirm that the bike was not involved in some kind of wreck which would void the lifetime frame warranty. I will also note that “another” bike shop has stepped up and put me on a screaming carbon machine. This is called awesome “customer service” and I am more than grateful for the loaner.
Last weekend some of our team volunteered to be course marshal’s at a 5k event. Here is the sweet picture the event photographer took. (I am on the far left) LOL!
A few weeks ago Scott surprised me with a Garmin 310XT. Do I even need to say how SWEET this device is?!! Last night I set it up for my scheduled interval run. Seemed easy until I realized that the interval part never started. User error…lol. So I ended up with 3 miles.
Mile 1 – 10:01 (warm up and chatting with my son)
Mile 2 – 9:10 (ok..start the intervals. Looked at the watch a thousand times)
Mile 3 – 8:23 (son ditched the failed start of intervals so I took off to just get the last mile over with)
Total: 27:34 (9:11 avg)
Scott rode his first Metric Ride (65 miles) this past weekend. He is burning up the roads these days. I love it!! He has even begun joining me in on 60 minutes of Stretch X twice a week. My flexibility has always been my biggest issue. This weekend we are doing a metric event together here locally. Should be a great course with some good climbing.
