Palos or road Saturday 3/17!

So who wants to ride tomorrow afternoon? I want to get my morning swim session in so thinking around 11am. Palos is my first choice but cambr is reporting it being pretty wet. If it doesn't dry up I'm hitting the roads!! Who's in?

Yes. I was actually going to say that if you could do it early I'd be in.

I'm up for a road ride.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I'd rather MTB, but Palos is still Yellow. Honestly, I don't have much fun when it's muddy. Where's your long run at Chills? Would you want to do a brick? I might be riding Sunday too and need to shuffle some workouts around, and since the pool is closed I may switch my run to saturday and swim on sunday.

My running sucks right now. That shin splint took me out for a month and I'm just getting back. I'm good for only 5 miles now.

Palos might be dry enough tomorrow, I'm not seeing any WX activity heading our way in the next 24 hours. If I do Palos we should bring Logtar so I have someone to hang out with in the back.

OK, I can run on my own. You thinking 35 on the road? or you want to do 56? I have both routes mapped and ready!

35 would be perfect. When/where do you want to meet?

I'll get a run in on Sunday, hoping in a month to be back up to 10 miles.

I need to run 15 this weekend. We can do 35, especially if I'm going to run after. Lets 8am at commissioners park on Rt 59 and 11th?

It's on the south side of 111th street about 1/4 mile west of Rt 59

I just found out I do have swim class. How late can you go? I can do 9am if I take my bike to the gym with me and go right after swim class

7-8 or 8:30. If we left at 9 it better not take us 3 hours to do 35 miles!

Oh geez, I hope it doesn't. I'll be drafting behind you so I should be able to keep a decent pace.

OK, 9am it is. I'll try to make there as early as possible so we can leave early if we can.

I'm doing an easy ride Sat, nothing but pedaling around though. I need to spend some time at base camp right now.

You guys up for a ride again this Saturday AM? It looks like rain for the next couple of days so I think Palos will be muddy again.

No idea what I am doing yet. We might hit the Dells on Sat/Sun and miss the crits on Sunday then, so I'll be doing an early ride on Sat before we leave. If not, then we'll probably do the crits on Sunday with no riding on Sat for me.

Just got a call last night from my buddy, he needs my help moving Saturday morning.

I can do Sunday. Brian, no worries if you can't do Sunday, I can ride solo.

cool...I gotta stay on track with the running for the Palos Half in may. My guess is it'll be raining tomorrow so I'll just hit the trainer. If it looks good in the morning I'll do 56 out in Naperville/Yorkville/Plattville.
