New Crank, Short Run

The weekend's almost here, so I thought I'd post a quick update on some new developments this week.

Vitaly helped me install a new crankset on my P3. Actually, that's misleading; I stood around looking confused while Vitaly installed the new crankset on my P3. I wound up going with an Ultegra 165mm. It's a bit heavier than the carbon FSA cranks we took off  -- maybe I should've gone Dura-ace? Either way, I'm curious to see how it feels on the open road over the next few days.

I also went for my first full-weight run of the year on Thursday afternoon. It was only fifteen minutes long, but that's a start. My Achilles and calf are both complaining a little bit today (more sore and tight than anything else), so we might still be a few weeks away from full recovery... but we're getting there.

If you're bored, check out this article about an awesome dude who decided to set his age group's hour-record for his 100th birthday.

Happy riding!
