I realize that's not saying much compared with a lot of people on these forums, but I'm delighted. Having just returned to cycling a month ago (and could barely do five miles) I was thrilled to do my first twenty miler (in twenty years) today. Took advantage of the lack of traffic on the holiday to swoop downtown (San Diego), then over to Seaport Village, up the harbor past the Star of India to Harbor Island and out to Tom Ham's Lighthouse Inn, and then back again. The only tough part was coming back UP the hills from DOWNtown to UPtown.
Now I'm tired, not particularly sore, and amused with my new patches of sunburn on both hands from the gloves. I may take tomorrow off, and I may not. The ten milers I've been doing 3-4x a week are so much fun it's hard not to get out there and do them!
Just thought I'd celebrate my little mini-milestone.
