What a week April 5, 2009

Posted by goirishgorebels in General.

I just got back from my ride.  I did 35 miles!  Abby was even excited when I told her.  She didn’t say “Is that all”.  Instead, she did that knuckle thing (I don’t know what they call it).  I do know that means I did good.

I was so happy to have the new shoes and pedals.  I can really tell a difference on the hills.  I can keep a steady pace without killing myself.  I was so proud of myself.  I hadn’t fallen off the bike with my shoes stuck to the pedals.  That was until I got to mile 23.  I was at Airline Rd. and I-40.  I saw that I was going to have to stop, so I got both feet out of the pedals.  I was still pedaling slowly to bring me up to the light when my left foot clicked back into the pedal.  I was already slowing to a stop and leaning to the left.  There was nothing I could do.  I just flopped down on the road.  I know the people who were stopped for the light must have had a good laugh.  So, I am officially broken in.

I just got through logging my mileage and realized how busy I’ve been this week.  I road over 115 miles this week.  My legs feel like it too.  I am taking a break tomorrow.  It’s supposed to rain, so it’s a good time to let the body recuperate.

That’s all for now.  If you have any suggestions on different content you would be interested in reading/seeing, let me know.  Have a good week!
