A weekend of mountain biking!

Although I've been feeling a little tired in my legs, I still ended up riding my mountain bike this weekend.  On Saturday, it was a ride with about 30 people as a send off for one of our friends who is moving to California.  We met up at Rally Point Grill in Cary and from there took off and did some sweet singletrack at Sludge, then through Umstead and then more singletrack for a total of 17 miles.  It was great, I got to ride some new trails that I have never been on and learned to get comfortable riding with a bunch of people. It was hard to start at first because I was feeling self-conscious about my skills and have not been riding that much either due to work and other lame excuses. After the ride was over, we went back to Rally Point for lunch where I promptly ruined my ride by eating a mushroom swiss burger and chips.  Later that night at a friend's birthday party, I went Paleo with a hot dog and a burger (no bun/no roll!) but then I was non-Paleo when I had a couple of bites of birthday cake.

On Sunday we were supposed to go for a run then a bike ride but the run never happened because I slept through my alarm and didn't get up until 9 am!  I suppose I caught up on my sleep and rest/recovery.  We met up for a ride at Lake Crabtree because I wanted to try the new, big logstack.  I watched two friends clean it and then I went for it and I rolled over that logstack like it was nothing! It was great, now I'd like to see if I can do it in the other direction.  Best part of recording the accomplishment was Jim telling me to go faster and Mike being the best cheerleader ever! It was a fast-paced ride and we ended up doing 9 miles total.  That was the extent of my exercise this weekend.  I hope to have time to do my weight training tomorrow and some more biking.

Great logstack. You almost sailed over it.
