Ice in the ‘stach

by on December 29, 2011

This Ride: 20.6 miles
Month: 619.2 miles
2011: 7,688.7 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 13808.4 miles

Six riders were out for a dark, cold ride this morning. It was 26° F.  Ice was forming at the wet spots on the trail and I noticed some ice in the mustache.

This was a hard morning for me.  I thought about returning home early a couple of times.  That’s the advantage of riding regularly with a group.  They can keep one motivated beyond what would be done solo.  I had little energy in the legs, very little wind in the lungs, and an ache in the Achilles Tendon again. To top it off, my electric toe warmer stopped working part way into the ride.  Grumble, grumble, grumble.

Tomorrow is the last planned ride of the year.  It is fitting that it will be on the fixie, and is breakfast.  I’ll also push over 7,700 miles for the year.  Will it be enough to win the SPP mileage challenge for December’s miles?  I hope so.  I haven’t won a month yet.
