2005 Pinot Noir.....It`s Friday Night!
In the glass tonight is a 2005 Sutter Home Pinot Noir. Grapes grown in California`s Napa Valley have produced this decent wine. I have had better Pinot Noirs but for the price this is a great deal. On sale at the NSLC for $10.40. Nice!
The Riverport Duathlon is on Sunday so I`m looking forward to my first Du. Somewhat timid as well as I really don`t know what to expect. My goals are far from lofty....my plan is to complete the race and set a benchmark for next season. This past week was hectic so I didn`t have the chance to train as I had hoped but, perhaps,it was an unintentional taper.I got a ride in Monday and a 4km run in last night. I pushed fairly hard trying to mimic a race pace and did set a personal best.....3.75km in 19:33. I`m far from a fast as my running remains a work in progress.I`ll plan on an easy club ride tomorrow morning.
The weather looks prime for Sunday with little wind, sun and 9c. Bring it on!
