I did four solo rides this week, one club ride and two rides with Jeff (one on my new cx bike!!) for a total of 161.21 miles. I eased off a little on overall mileage from the two weeks previous, but still felt like I got a workout due to the winds that pick up here in the fall.
Another girl addicted to cycling! Blogging to help set goals for myself, record stats and have a place to share pics from my rides.
I’m working on building speed and skills. Not sure I’ll have the nerve to try racing. Jeff, my DH, tells me to “Dig Deep into my Handbag of Recklessness”, but I don’t see him racing either… Our main goal has been to keep up on fast-ish group rides.
When I’m not biking, I’m playing with my two silly dogs, a very fuzzy cat that seems to be allergic to his own coat, cooking yummy dishes (generally within the amount of calories I’ve burned on the bikes), making/drinking lattes, avoiding other forms of exercise as much as possible (though I must get better about upper body strength training), knitting, reading, viewing some TV (if it’s mysteries or certain comedies or news)…
