Some days are like this

by on July 7, 2011

This Ride:29.8 miles
Month: 235.4 miles
2011: 3,605.3 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 9,725.0 miles

I knew before I rolled out of bed this morning that this would be a tough one.  I didn’t have much energy and my legs felt like logs.  I got out of the house in time to get about 7 miles in before meeting up at the Rusty Bridge.  We had another good turnout, especially with the new guys.  It wasn’t long before I let the group go off on their own, and I took my own pace.

Alone I climbed the hill in Round Bay.  Alone I rode down Old County Road.  Alone I rode to the southern end of the trail, seeing at least 4 groups of riders making their way north.  Alone I rode to the peak of the Naval Academy Bridge.  Alone I rode back north on the trail.  Alone I rode B&A Blvd, getting up to 38 mph on my favorite hill.  I waved at Dangerous Dan as he found his way home.  If it sounds like I’m feeling sorry for myself, I’m not.  This alone time was good.  I enjoy either group rides or solo rides.

I was surprised that my average speed was as high as it was.  I felt as though it were a lot slower.

I though a lot about the past couple of years riding and what I’ve learned and how far I’ve come.  I still have goals and plenty to learn, but this has been a good couple of years.
