Gold Canyon popped into my mind on Wednesday so it was the ride of choice. I love the drive out there and the fact the trails are glorious and always completely empty! It really is amazing to have such a good network that gets so little use. So with thats said I coudln't help but think about how snowbird filled San Tan or South Mountain or Usery was so I gladly enjoyed 90 miinutes without seeing another soul while riding in the Supersition Mountains, what a treat!
With my wife home to be on duty for the kiddo if a problem shall arise I went for McDowells for something more less ridden by me. I must say when I did put the rubber down my back was bothering me, legs were lifeless and the appeal of a ride was just not there. I just kept pedaling on easy beautiful trail convincing myself to get some miles, by the time the first loop was over I was feeling a little better and it got better from there. Nice day and ride out there for sure, love me some fall!

I took som excedrin Thursday night as I started to feel my worst, I started to feel noticable better and by the next day I flt much better. So with time on my hands I went for the big loop, so peaceful and pretty out there, until I got to Usery Mountain, lots of hikers was mildy annoying but no big deal. Mission complete, onwards through November!
Plans to do a big loop round Hawes fell short as I decided shorlty in that this was going to be a bit of a grind to just get the stadard done, I wish I could say I was out there getting a workout for Halloween candy but I am over candy the last few years and glad.
Oh man Tuesday is here and still my legs feel like crap, I also noticed some congestion and head funk, due to my swollen dry eyes I know allergies are back around and thats whats knocking my spirit down but why the legs. Pedaled this one out easily, cased a rock so hard on my front wheel I could not believe it made it through that unscathed. Testament to lots of PSI and a older stans flow ex :)
