If I didn’t commit to 30 days of riding I very well may have ditched today’s ride. For a plethora of reasons, I didn’t leave the house till after 4 PM. The first few miles were a struggle to say the least. I could have turned around anytime and still have fulfilled my 30 days, but…… I have an event next weekend and don’t want to go to NYC wishing I had put more miles in preparation.
Today was a training ride in that I rode moderately hard for the whole 25 miles. It’s my best average speed of the season 14 MPH which is good enough for someone my age and shape. Speaking of shape. When I saw my shadow while riding with a low sun in the western sky, I looked like a walrus on a bike. It’s disgusting with all the riding, walking and yoga I do to be in this shape. I’m beginning to think I eat too much. I may not be a walrus but I am the egg man. Coo Coo Cachoo.
