Back on the saddle

This is going to be a shocker, but I actually rode my bike. Can you believe it?!? In fact, my bike computer says that I went 26.2 miles today. Not too shabby, eh?

Most of the credit goes to Cindy who invited me to meet up with her on the bike path this morning. That's all it took to get me off my rear and onto my bike. I was a little apprehensive on the way to our designated meeting spot when I realized how windy it was. However, I rather enjoyed the whole experience and hope we can do this more often.

After arriving home, it became obvious that today's ride totally wore me out. I didn't feel like doing much more than sitting on the couch. I guess that's what happens when you take a long break from cycling and decide to pick it back up on a windy day with a nice little 25+ mile ride.

Oh, and I must have been too tired to think straight this afternoon, because I went ahead and registered for Elephant Man. Yikes! Guess it's time to get serious now...

  5. There you go again -- you see a problem (dropping the bike) and you fix it. Your self-analysis and them immediate problem-solving are inspiring. Go, Lisa!
