Happy Monday friends! This weekend was a very busy one!
Things kicked off on Friday with an hour long ride through Bearspaw. It was a beautiful evening for a ride!
By the time I was done the ride I was famished…but I had to go grocery shopping at Costco. That sounds like a recipe for disaster! I grabbed a chocolate milk and ate some string cheese and I managed to make it through Costco without straying from my grocery list.
On Saturday I was up bright and early. I had a double workout day that I needed to get through. First up was an easy one hour run. My legs felt a bit tired to begin with but they soon came around. I had tried to get an early start but it was already really warm out!
After my run I ate a good breakfast, mixed up some fuel, loaded up my bike and drove out to Cochrane. I had a 60K bike ride to do and I decided to revisit an old route and ride Horse Creek Road.
I figured this was also a great excuse to try out my new Betty Designs tri kit. I wanted to see how comfortable it might be for racing this year. So far I love it! Everything stayed put (my old tri top would always roll up at the waist on me) and I was comfortable the entire time.
I forgot how nice it is riding Horse Creek Road. It was so pretty out!
Alpacas (I think)!
Once the ride was done I knew I needed to hurry up and refuel. Luckily I had brought along a little jug of chocolate milk with me!
No bike in Cochrane is complete without a trip to MacKay’s for some ice cream.
Strawberry rhubarb pie and a scoop of Saskatoon Berry. Yum!
When I got home it was time to put my feet up, relax and rehydrate. I had a race on Sunday I needed to prepare for!
How was your weekend? What is your favourite flavour of ice cream?
