73.5 Miles of “Davis Hills”


Yolo County Airport, off Road 95

This morning the wind wasn’t quite as bad as it was yesterday, and I really am out of time for excuses. I simply HAD to ride. The 2013 Napa Valley Tour de Cure is just two weeks from TODAY!

I headed out around 9:00 am and rode about 42 miles from Davis to Winters and back, and then another 30+ in a loop out towards Woodland and around Davis on back roads. The wind was pretty strong today, but I actually rode pretty well (for me) in spite of it. I didn’t take a lot of pictures, but stopped to capture this on near the airport.

Since I might as well accept the winds here (apparently constant complaining about it has not made it stop), I am going to now approach them as training for hills.

The wind is an excellent training tool.

Berry & Peach Buttermilk Smoothie with Whey Protein

A Berry-Peach-Buttermilk Smoothie is motivation to get home!

Tonight’s dinner will be grilled chicken breasts marinated in lemon, honey, coarse grain mustard, extra virgin olive oil, and fresh thyme and rosemary. A salad of mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, roasted artichoke hearts and walnuts, drizzled with a little balsamic glaze and extra virgin olive oil, with a grind or two of salt and pepper. We’ve also got this avocado that just won’t get ripe, so on the grill it goes.
