With the threat of rain in today's forecast, I headed out for my ride earlier than usual on X6 despite feeling pretty bleary. I wanted to make sure I got my ride for 30/30 and was further motivated by being just 31 miles from reaching 3,000 miles for the year. I didn't manage to shake off the sluggish feeling, but I pedaled the 31 miles anyway.
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)…
