    I talked with God today

    So today was a hill training ride with Will. We met at his house for a 36 mile loop and he lives in a, well, not flat area! lol

    Hill after hill I tell ya. One was so steep (for me) that I had to call God and ask him for help. He started talking but then Jesus got on the phone and said "get your @ss up that hill boy" and I swear the holly ghost was laughing at me in the background. lol

    It was great riding out there. I learned that it is my pace which is slow. I focused on breathing and my rhythm which is not easy when learning the hills. I wish I would have started riding hills earlier. lol

    The downhills were amazing, once I got up to 40 mph which was so fast. I had to apply a little pressure to the brakes too. he he he

    All in all 36 mile loop at 13.2 mph moving average and about 2800 feet in elevation.

    That's quite a bit of climbing for a 36 mile ride!

    I think I've heard the Lord tell me that unless I follow Rule #5 (HTFU - Harden That Fat Up) that I'll never be an angel. Since He is the only true King of the Mountain then I reckon I'd better listen and keep attacking them hills!

    I would like to go out there more and ride that route. I wonder if our Friday rides could be something like that? Wonder how bad the traffic would be going home from your place on a friday night? It was backed up going back home yesterday.
