Hangin' with the Kid
This is a light week, a Niko week (every other week). He's a little shy of 100 percent with the slightest touch of a cold, so we're taking it pretty easy. While he fiddled around with HTML on the Mac today, I rode for an hour on the trainer, using the Continental Hometrainer Tire for the first time. Only took me about six weeks to put that on. It made a difference. The tension against the tire was cranked down a bit yet I was still getting better traction than before. Quieter, too. Good stuff.
We also walked a mile or two on the riverfront in Lake Oswego, where we had gone to sign me up for tomorrow's race. Sign-up accomplished, as well as check-in, so it should be a comfortable morning getting there for the 10 a.m. start. Rain in the forecast. Five miles, hard, in the rain. The little guy waiting for me under a big umbrella when I'm done. Breakfast at the New Deal afterward. That's the plan.
