And it only took 20 days to do it
I still suck at climbing, but I'm adding something new that I suck at: giving up. I had the opportunity to give up a couple times today, and didn't. I'm losing some of my quit
I took a new MUP today that has a bridge on it. A tiny climb for folks who are in a shape other than round, but a climb for guys like me. I climbed it on the big chainring headed out, and again on the way back. The climb on the way back hurt, but I refused to give up on it, and I refused to punch the granny button. I just gutted it out, and panted out an "f you, bridge, I win" at the top.
A minor victory, but the road to success is built on many minor victories over time.....
