"I'm not bipolar, im a BIWINNER"- C. Sheen

So this weekend was FULL of biwinning. Just got done with a swim session/experimental photoshoot with Rhea Quitasol photography. May I say I think the pictures look great! but my technique can use some tweaking haha Pictures are up on my facebook here.
As for the workout itself, it went well. Tried to do some core work right after but my phone was freezing on me (damn prehistoric droid 1 haha) and I dont have the workout memorized so I will continue that tonight.

Yesterday I had a long drive from Mesa to Visalia. It is such nice scenery from Phoenix to about Indio/Palm Springs. It is a barren, unforgiving landscape that only the toughest will survive yet brings a wave of serenity knowing that it has withstood the sands of time. Here are some pictures from my drive.

Saturday 3/13 I did a 3 hour bike. I went from my place to the Usery mountain pass or whatever its called. My was it a spectacle! So beautiful but so damn hot as well it was about 87 that day and the sun was beating down on my back. I wanted to jump into the Salt River so bad haha It is a pretty popular ride, I saw many other cyclists there ranging from my age to wrinkly, leather skin from the sun old. All of them were the nicest people as well. Good company.

For the ride I stocked up on gatorade, an extra water bottle, and two peanut butter sandwiches. The first hour went well, it was just a matter of getting to Usery. Mesa-Gilbert-Chandler has designated bike lanes but a lot of them are ridden with potholes and a ton of rocks which is means a ton of pressure flats. The second hour was good. I stopped a couple times to smell the roses and take pictures but I did get in a good 5 minute hell-of-a climb at the end. The third hour was like the final battle. It was a mental challenge to say the least. Here is a map of my bike ride from Bike route
Here are some pictures from the bike ride:
