I had a pretty steady week. My bike ride was set for Sunday, but the forecast was not looking good. Saturday was nearly 65+ degrees so I went out on my long ride on Saturday. I swam early in the morning, came home and ate a good breakfast. I waited awhile so my food could digest. I made it out just before noon.

I got two flat tires along the way. Yuck. One more and I would have been sunk. I only care 2 tubes with me. I made it from Chery Creek Reservoir to Chatfield Reservoir. Its about 35 miles each way. I thought I was going to need a nap afterwards, but I was doing pretty good.

My long run on Sunday was fantastic. I ran to Cherry Creek Reservoir and did some trail running. I ran in the marsh/swam areas. I really enjoyed myself. The temperature outside was almost perfect. I would have prefered it to be a little warmer.

I usually only carry two tubes and 2 CO2 cartridges with me too. One time I got 2 flats within 5 minutes of each other and was sweating bullets hoping I didn't get another one!
