No Goats – Back to work

by on January 4, 2011

This Ride: 21.8 miles
Month: 58.8 miles
2011: 58.8 miles
Cumulative Total: 6,178.5 miles

I have to admit, I was a little disappointed. No goats this morning.  Just 1 bunny dashed across my path.  No Red-Winged Blackbirds fell out of the sky.  The air was pretty still.

Seven riders, 25° F dropping down to 22° F during the ride.  There was a good deal of conversation, but I found myself riding pretty silently.  My legs are aching and although I kept up during the fast parts and on the hills, I just didn’t seem to have much energy this morning.  Could that be related to another round of calorie restrictions?  Probably so.  I also didn’t sleep well last night.

A huge part of getting stronger, more fit, and faster on the bike is simply showing up.  That’s what I did … I showed up.  Now, back to work this morning.
