Hi hi! Hope your weekend was fabulousssss !
A couple days back, my friend Madeline (triathlon dominatrix extraordinaire) asked me if I wanted to go on a bike ride with a couple of her friends this weekend.
Being a complete newbie to biking, I said "heck yes!" eager to learn skillz.
Unfortunately, my quads are still completely shot from the marathon last Monday. I don't know how all you other blogsters appear completely recovered...jealous!!
I figured a bike ride couldn't cause problems because I figured "hey it's cross training...different muscles, right?".

On Saturday I got up at 5:30 AM to drive to Brentwood (LA) to meet these girls. After a few snafus (I don't have a bike rack and couldn't get the front tire off my bike to get it in the car) which made me late to leave, I made the drive up to LA.
As soon as I got on the bike in Brentwood, I knew I was in for trouble...my soreness was incredible.... Since I'd taken so long getting up to LA, I missed the start and I literally took off on my bike, hoping to randomly run into the girls on the bike path. Miracles of miracles, I did!
The miracles ended there though. I definitely couldn't hang with the girls and so Madeline was sweet enough to spend her morning teaching me how to ride a bike...big girl style. She taught me all sorts of bike handling tips that probably come naturally to most, but definitely not to me. :)
Afterwards I went to Ralphs to get some food....
And purchase a 10 week supply of strawberries at $.88 a pack! I totally can't resist a deal!
If you have a Ralphs near you RUN don't walk and buy some bargain deliciousness!
I don't know about you, but I know what I'm eating tomorrow morning. :)
Which brings me to my question...
Do you buy ridiculous quantities of stuff when it's on sale just because you're excited about the freaking awesome deal?
