Today was a day of rest, sort of. I didn’t get on my treadmill nor did I get on my bike.  I used this time to work on my bike.  I’m somewhat disappointed in the tires that I bought a little over a year ago. Granted when I bought these I had already ordered some Grand Prix that came highly recommended for the condition of the roads around my house. The Grand Prix were not going to get here in time for my next big ride so I went ahead and got the cheaper tires so I could go riding.  The Bontrager tires that were purchased lasted year only had about 500 miles on them before they went bald and started showing the lining.  I’m glad I only paid around $30 each for them.

So I took a day of rest so that means that I’ll have to really work on the treadmill tomorrow night and the rest of the week.  It’s supposed to storm tomorrow evening and rain the rest of the week until Friday so unfortunately I’ll be seeing more of my treadmill than I want too.  Alabama weather goes nuts this time of year.  You never know what the weather is going to do until that day.

I’ll be in Atlanta Georgia on Saturday at the Sweetwater Creek State Park so if you’re in the area give me a shout and we’ll hook up.  I’m going to spend the first part of the day taking pictures of the wildlife and landscape.  The afternoon is going to be taking pictures of a beautiful young lady.  Can’t wait to share some new work.
