Ulu Yam With Sam

Last Wednesday morning I did Ulu Yam with Sam. We repeated the ride today and Sam kindly joined me on my brick run. I am still really sore though and on more than one occasion Sam asked if I was okay.The heart was willing, the legs were somehow turning but just not as hard or as easily as usual.
I put this mornings ride down to a lactic recovery session - whatever that is - I just made it up. One nice thing that cheered me up no end this morning is my NEW shoes. I have only owned one pair of bike shoes before and they have been getting rather stinky and rough around the edges. I think they have only lasted this long because they are black in colour and I cannot see exactly how foul they have become!!
My new shoes are awesome, I have not used the carbon sole before and have no clue if they will help me go faster but it sounds kinda swanky and cool. They also match my bike, so at least I co-ordinate with something at last. They were quite a bargain too I may add. USD109, instead of USD199. It's good to have friends in the right places!!
Thanks for the ride Sam...always great.

nice colour.
carbon makes them lighter and stiffer so the shoe will not flex and you do not lose as much energy during the power phase of pedaling.....
