3rd Ride Report - I'm a Cyclist
OK - Gang just completed my third ride.
..This time I fell twice..
.Is there a Queen of the Dumps Club? (I got that title in Prep school when I fell the most off a horse...). First fall I park in the lot for the Bike Trail- and ride over to the bathroom - boom I fall as I stop. Ok so then I am ready to roll.... I head out on the path - I do think it's a tad hot, but I was on a mission. I was going to joing the Southern Bike Leagues - Women's ride...but with traffic I was a half hour late so I missed the group. So anyway...off I go... Around Mile 10 I have to stop at an intersection of the path and road since there were cars...And I did not see the cars- so It was a sudden stop - and did not release my foot in time...boom! My legs look roughed up a bit... but I guess I will learn...soon I hope. The ride went well. It was tough... It was shady in parts and with my dark glasses it was hard to see... it was hot... but I do want to continue to train and lose weight- but I really wanted to meet people, too. Anyway it was a bit of a tough ride....20.47ish miles...1hr 32min 24 sec including the 2nd fall...I think it was hard because yesterdays ride was where I rode with someone who was quite a character and told stories the whole way. In any case I am very proud of myself... And have pledged not to wegih myself til Monday - but this gotta help! (oh and I did the elliptical for 15 minutes this morning and then one hour of Body Work Class at the gym...Oy Vey!)
Thanks guys for keeping me pumped and excited...
