Another night in the basement making up a workout on the bike. I've been thinking about writing a training plan. I know the days I'll be going swimming so thats a start. Beyond that I know I will ride almost everyday and when I can run (if I ever run again) I'll mix in some of that too. Little bit of core work here and there and I have the basics. Today I rode steady for 30 minutes, did single leg drills for 8 minutes and then rode hard for 30 minutes before a steady cool down until I hit 90 minutes. I planned on another 75 mins but Coxy called so it allowed me time to speak to him and add on another 15 minutes. Lovely session and I felt fantastic.
I listened to "Memory Tapes" on my ride today. Some songs are okay and some are fantastic, like the one I have below. Memory Tapes is a collaboration between "Memory Cassettes" and "Weird Tapes". I am not super familiar with either band although I do have some Weird Tapes tracks I just read about their union on the blogosphere. This song has been out for a while. The track, and their other music, is really joyful and emotional with true nostalgia of Nu Wave and summer days drinking cans and living large. Really simple and beautiful.
