After that last little spill off the bike I took a few days off. The legs were (still are) fairly bruised and beaten up…but that’s how it goes. Yesterday I had the bright idea to take off on an eight mile run. It was fine, I finished in under an hour ten ( <9 minute mile ) and felt pretty good though I think my knees and ankle swole up afterwards.

This morning I spent a solid two hours cleaning the bike, tightening and adjusting bolts, and tweaking my seat position. The thing looked beautiful when I was done with and I just had to take it out for a quick hour spin on the near-by trail system.

At some point during the ride I had unknowingly ejected my water bottle, so I went back through a partial loop to find it.  Great little ride, all in all. The bike is running as good as it ever has (except for a little quirky-ness in the front der). I’m feeling about as good as I ever have. Life is alright.

On with my regularly scheduled day off.
