1st Ride in 7 weeks
I'm back in USA on a busines trip, been in Cebu Philippines since Jun 27th,
Got on my Steelman yesterday @ dawn, rode 20 miles. Still got It! (bad pun huh?) - Was worried on muscle loss, I walked alot during long wait for my goods to arrive by boat, gave up running due to Achilles Heel pain. This morning I feel good. AH slighly stiffer than usual, but What a Ride. 64 desgrees at start, FROZE!.
I did notice, I set a fast pace, avg 15.9 for 20 miles. But legs were shot, couldn't have kept it much longer. Endurace was definitely lost.
Headed back the 29th, hope to get in 150 miles by then.
Bikes shipped are in Manilla held by customs. They want to see my passport! Hope no problems.
Riding a bike - Ain't Life GRAND!!!!!!
