What a weekend!
Syracuse basketball, ugh, what a game.
We went to the Landmark Theater to watch it on the huge screen. The game had me in mixed feelings the whole time, but the referees ultimately ruined the game in the last ten seconds. Couldn’t even let the kids play the game. The refs totally threw it and we left frustrated. Here’s to hoping we pulverize Maryland tonight.
We took Griswold to the dog park too. It was busy and he had soooo much fun chasing all the other dogs around.
But the weather, oh the weather. In the 40F’s and beautiful. Sunny, warm, lovely. I had planned to go to spinning Sunday night, but it was way too nice to coop myself up in the spin studio. Especially because we’re back to highs in the teens and sub-zero lows for the unforeseeable future again. So I laced up my running shoes and took advantage of the weather instead.
Just an easy 5k in the sun. It was wonderful. Not going for speed or anything, just enjoying the sun before it disappears again this week.
I taped up my arches too to try and deter my hotspots from acting up. I didn’t account for the fact that feet swell when running, so by the first mile my feets were hurting. I’m planning to try running in my new Brooks socks without taping and see if that works. If not I’ll just make sure I’m taping loosely.
I also took Finley in for a check up back on Thursday. I haven’t had her looked over since my crash in December. I took her out for a few miles Wednesday night just to feel her out and she was making a bit of noise, so I loaded her into my car and took her over to Geneva Bike Center on my lunch break yesterday.
They gave her good once over and said other than a few loose screws she looked great, gears were shifting smoothly, and overall nothing was wrong. Then they brought her upstairs and popped onto the trainer in their Retule fitting station and had me hop on. They took a few measurements, tweaked my seat position a bit for me, and she was good to go. I’m happy I got this done. Good piece of mind so I can take her out on long rides now.
