Recovery was breakfast with mom. I was rather disappointed in the bacon waffle :(. The waffle was $7.95 and it was a small basic waffle. I opted for a side of bacon which was $3.95. WTF? For an $8 waffle it should have been belgian with bacon and pecans and REAL maple syrup. Do not go to Tom's Pancake House expecting a good waffle, hence the name "pancake house" I suppose.
Food quality was blahza but my company was spectacular! My mom has lost 20lbs over the last few months and she looks and sounds amazing! I am sooooo proud of her. Words can not even describe. I love you mom. Keep up all the great work. You're the best!!!!

In the afternoon I met up with Sue for an easy aerobic bike ride around Sauvie's Island. Initially my power meter worked, for all of 5 mins. So now at least I know it's not batteries or the wiring harness. I'll have to start troubleshooting with Saris on Monday morning. Alas, back to the ride. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day to ride. High 50s/low 60s, not a cloud in the sky and that big fiery thing they call a sun shinning high. Thankfully Sue and I are in pretty close power ranges that we ride together and she can share the ride power data with me :)
Starting at the Athlete's Lounge we headed out the dirty 30, hit Sauvies for two loops. We decided to hit the island at each direction to make it a little less monotonous. I need to ride with Sue more often as she guys hit on her right and left! Cat calling her P3 :D hehe, then they drafted off of us! In our Z2 none the less! Ahahahaha! Good times. After two loops, lots of sun and a little girl talk we headed back to the start.
Ride data
2hrs 13 mins/ 42.3 miles
Avg Power 148 / Norm avg 155 - Z2

I couldn't have asked for a better day. A morning swim, bacon waffles - even if it was lackluster, it's still bacon! Breakfast with my badass mama! Short 30 min Kat-nap. Afternoon ride in the sun w/a great friend. Another short 30 min Kat nap. Now, time for some pizza, a little (I do mean little) wine and maybe some bull ridin'.....or somethin' like that :)
