I've finally stopped with the worst of the nagging cough (apres pneumonia) and rode more than my normal 3.5 mile round trip commute today.
I rode a whole 13 miles with the Black Friday Ride in Richardson (3 miles were traveling to/from the ride),
and while I felt good after the ride, am feeling, this evening, much as I would have after a 40 miler.
Whatever...It was still fun.
This, my friends, just will not do.
I just wish I didn't have to be so careful about pushing myself too quickly (already had one relapse...didn't care for the experience).
If the weather holds out maybe I'll be back to thirty miles or so in January 2010.
I feel like I lost so much ground this year...(whine, mewl, puke, etc.).
But, then again, 13 miles IS 13 miles and I should just be happy that I've hit double digits again.
