Well the weather has been beautiful so today I decided to go out and see how far I could ride. I rode 10 miles out on the river levee and then headed back. I had a bit of a fall back position since my sister lives between my house and that point but I didn't need to stop and get a ride home.
It was a lot of fun! There were a good number of people out without it being overly crowded. At mile 10, I got off the bike for a couple of minutes. A young guy out walking said to me as he walked by, "Don't worry, that muscle soreness is just the weakness leaving your body." I thought that was pretty cool. He could have laughed at the fat lady on the 'Cannondale speed machine' , but instead he offered encouragement!
What a great day!
