I just finished my first 10-mile ride! I'm pretty excited about it because that's been a goal for a couple months now. But every time I got up to 8 or 9 miles, I had surgery and was off for 3 weeks, or went to Hawaii and got sick and was off for a month, and I thought it was never gonna happen. But it was sunny today -- thank gawwwwwwwd -- and I felt pretty good, so I just went for it.
The first 8 miles were easy, because that's what I've been doing this month. The last half of the 9th mile was a little harder... and I thought that 10th mile was gonna kill me, lol. But I did it, so now I can start working toward 12.... and then 15.... and then 20.
It took me exactly an hour, which I know isn't setting any speed records. But I'm not in it for racing, I'm in it to get healthy, and I'm just trying to get used to being in the saddle longer.
I'll have to try to do it again tomorrow, because after that it's supposed to rain for the next 10 days.... .... and I won't be able to get out.
Anyway, distance goal #1 accomplished.
Now I gotta go collapse, lol.
Have a good one.
