Fleas and Bikes and Read-Throughs, Oh My!


Oh, man. I hope you all had a good weekend, because mine passed in a bit of a blur. Saturday was designated "flea-killing day"-we vacuumed everywhere, did a ton of laundry, and gave the dogs their second flea baths of the week. So far everything looks good, and I haven't seen a single flea since Saturday afternoon, but I'll still be on guard for a while.

Saturday evening I went for my first >20 mile training ride, and it was just what I needed. I got one of these for my handlebars, and it's made such a difference. I need to remember to keep my shoulders back and my neck long, but my hands and wrists feel so much better, and it definitely made the ride more enjoyable. I feel like I'm in a pretty good place now, and Saturday's ride went so well that I'm looking forward to these last days of training. I'd been really anxious about crossing the 20-mile mark; an old cycling teammate of mine loved to say that if you could ride 20 miles, then you could ride 50 miles, so this is a huge psychological burden off my mind.

I promise, I did get some knitting done this weekend, but it was mostly done during our read-through on Sunday evening and I haven't managed a photograph yet. It was a long rehearsal yesterday, and I'm not quite used to the schedule yet, but I'm so happy to be back in theater mode for the summer.
