My sickness has subsided for the most part, so I was able to get back out there this weekend and enjoy these January 65/70 degree temps. Sweet!
Friday: Before work, I got in a 1 hour base ride on the trainer. After work, I did a 50 minute Zone 2 run along the cliffs in Del Mar at sunset. The fog rolled in thick just after sunset, which made for a slightly eerily yet pretty cool feel to the run.
Saturday: Learning about, and being active in helping the environment is on the 2008 to do list, so I volunteered with San Diego Coast Keeper by collecting some water samples at Otay Lakes Reservoir. After that, I rolled down to Coronado beach with some friends for a bonfire and hanging out. I learned that Trader Jose's Frozen Burritos can indeed be cooked over a bonfire, and came out pretty damn good at that.
Sunday: 2 hour Del Dios ride. I wanted to do this ride to check on the effects of the wildfires from a few months back. In general, there is some regrowth on its way that was def helped by the rains last weekend. Here are some pics:
Unfortunately, the del dios hill didn't get any easier though
Also, item worth buying: Trader Joe's 3 layer hummus: Regular/Cilantro & Jalapeno/Spicy.
