I was lucky enough to have a recovery week on the schedule, although I am sure Coach was kicking himself as it would have provided some great opportunities to work on my mental toughness. And my luck continued into the weekend as the weather cleared and we were left with clear skies and sunshine for all of Saturday and Sunday.
It was Sean's B-day party on Saturday afternoon, so the training got started early with a quick ride and long run brick. A good day on both accounts. Made even better by closing it out with some good company, good food & drinks, and this view to top it off:
I know I am bad about the picture taking, but its usually because I am riding with a group and don't want to slow everyone up. Well Sunday, I had 6hrs of riding by myself, and I vowed to be better with the camera. Here's what I saw:
Sunday started with a view of Marina Del Rey & Snow Capped Mtns.
Leo Carillo State Beach
Leo Carillo from Mullholland Highway
And the ride ended with a Sunset on Redondo Beach & Palos Verdes.
A pretty awesome day in the saddle.
