Tour De Patrick Pre-Ride

9:50pm

Jeebus! I AM SO TIRED and SO SORE! Woke up at 8:50am, got dropped off at Pat’s around 9:15am, got ready, etc, then headed out by 10am. We took the wrong road looking for Angus Road in Vancouver after 64th Ave. We ended up adding about 4 extra kilometers to our route. After we found Burrard Street, we went across the bridge, circled a bit and rode on Beach Ave until we reached Milestones. We ate some lunch, and continued onto Stanley Park. We rode the diameter of SP counter-clockwise, rested here and there, and took the rather difficult route back home – cuz again, we lost the road we were travelling on.

Finally crossed Arthur Liang, and took a nice long rest along Russ Baker, watching planes land, played on the springy playground airplanes, took some pics, and headed toward Gilbert road bridge to Richmond, then back to Pat’s place. I slept for a bit, ate some dinner, and he dropped me off at my place around 8:45pm. As you can see, for those who are wondering, yes, I skipped my meeting with the team cuz I was just way too tired. However, it didn’t stop them from calling me a few times. I bet Benny and Jason are still at Ray’s house.

    Yeah, I gained 5 pounds over the last two months from working out, cycling and eating more than what I’m burning off. Still can’t get my forearms to get meatier though. I think Ed and I are doomed for that sort of thing. I’m going to look deranged – big shoulders, back, biceps, thighs, and pecs, and thin forearms and shins/calves. [sigh]
