Good Weekend Rest

After riding for almost 2 weeks straight with no rest days, I decided that this weekend I would rest. So yesterday I loaded up the kayak and headed out fishin. I didn't catch anything, but my uncle caught a couple of reds, a flounder and a ton of catfish. I had a great day and enjoyed being on the water. We narrowly escaped a massive thunderstorm by beating it to our vehicles. All-in-all it was a great day yesterday, and I paddled about 10 miles total (Got a good upper body workout).

Today I had to go and pick up my truck from a buddy who was doing some work on it. When I got home I decided I needed to ride, even a little as my legs wanted to spin. I went ahead and road 8.3 miles in just under 30 minutes. Nothing extreme, but enough to keep the legs warmed up.

Great weekend and will be picking it back up this week, ending with a 50 mile ride on Saturday.

Sounds like you had a great weekend. I would love to be able to do a 50. Maybe soon.
