TGIF Randoms

Roller Girl Improves!

Well, I've been steadily improving my skills on the rollers. First, I learned to shift around without getting squirrelly. Then, I was able to do intervals on them without wandering off when I was gassed out in zone 4+. Earlier this week, I perfected the art of drinking from the water bottle while rolling. Today, I rode my TT bike on the rollers and was able to stay aero for 50 minutes straight! It was a little iffy transitioning between the cowhorns and aero extensions, but I didn't fall off, so it's all good!

You're invited


Our 'satellite church' project is kicking off this Sunday. It's basically a casual community with live music and a video sermon pumped live from the mother ship (Menlo Park Presbyterian Church). On the invitation it says "no dress code - come as you are". We'll see how they feel when we roll up on bikes in full spandex kit ;) (seriously) Anyhoo, services at 9 and 10:30 on Sundays in Fellowship Hall of First Pres Mt. View (Cuesta & Miramonte) if you're in the area and into that sort of thing.

Chris - the amazing part of her current work on the rollers is just 6 weeks ago she was still terrified of them. Now she is going strong and getting better, and more confident.

Before you know it you'll be winning drinking contests on the things! Or wait, maybe that's only a college-team thing...

panda,

The last drinking game I ever played was the X-Files drinking game. It's been a few years...probably shouldn't try that on the rollers just yet!
