Yesterday was my follow up Physical therapy appointment. I reviewed my lack of recovery progress. Ell the PT performed the classic rotator cuff health tests which i passed except for pain when moving my arm outboard. She said to continue w/ the exercises.
I decided to hang @ BnB instead of riding.
Indiana the mens college div 1 basketball team ranked number 1 lost to MN yesterday, an unranked team. Gonzaga is Number 2. The Zags could possibly be ranked #1 next week.
Today I rolled into the Bean mid morning. Matt stopped in, we created a ride idea. He called me to say the ride was a go and we were going to ride from Chavez ranch rd. He was bringing his 2 dogs, litter mates, along then stopping on the way back to VOC to buy dog food. He has trained his dogs well. Spectacular: we were climbing on Old Post, an old road when we approached 2 hikers. He told them to heel and they heeled on his bottom bracket on each side of him. Old Post down into Carrol Canyon on old system trails. I ran into Richard the frame builder again. I added new ride data to my map.
My new supply of Pen Agains arrived today along w/ a new Fizik Gobi saddle and new chain rings. New stuff to put on. The saddle is over 2 1/2 years old and the drive train is 89 rides and 1311 miles. Maybe I can get some more miles b4 replacing the whole thing. I spaced on the mileage on the chain to change it @ maybe 300 miles which would have prevented the erosion of the gear teeth.
Temps during the day are upper 50s but in upper 20s at night. There is still snow cover on the north face of the mountains. Hiline will have snow and frozen ground mixed in w/ sun warmed dirt.
Tomorrow GU plays BYU @ home. Go Zags.
Winds are picking up but no rain.
