Tri Dream

Last night, I had a dream I was racing in a Half Ironman. It was quite interesting. This is a reverse tri. We started off with the run in downtown Toronto. Unfortunately I forgot to pack a map so I didn't know the race route. I ended up crawling on top of a roof (don't ask me why).

This must be a sign my body misses triathlon :).

Yesterday I went for a quickie 20 min jog. Nothing biggie.
I can't wait to finish work today. It is very foggy here and I love to run in the fog.
Last Sat, me, Darren and Aaron went on a bike ride. It was great. Granted, they were faster than me and I was trying to catch up. It was still fun. By the end, my calves were aching a bit. This is when I know I had a good bike ride.

I went to MEC afterwards and was looking for a pair of tights for winter cycling. Unfortunately, they don't have my size. I was contemplating of getting a soft shell jacket for the cold:

It looks and feels so great. Then I thought I had another winter jacket already. What I can do is to wear multiple inner layers if it gets really cold. That saved me 120 dollars.

That's about it from my end. I want to do a bit more riding this weekend as well. The weather is still warm life is good! :)

My old biking partner just biked from So Cal to I feel really left behind now in my training!

Keep your eye on the web site, Cliff, in case that jacket goes on sale!

That's *exactly* the jacket I'm getting! Watch out for the MEC gear swaps - you might find one gently used for yourself.

I love MEC!

How about just getting leg warmers? I rode in 50-degree drizzly weather for a bit yesterday and they kept me plenty warm. They're pretty thick material and would probably be fine even down into the 40's (I have short legs so they go down to my ankles).

Nice jacket too, though!

I would still love a 1-ply gore-tex (type) shell jacket with hood.

Yeah Cliff, gearing up for winter! :)

Sometimes it's a bummer when you hear the voice of reason. Wise to listen to it.
