An Easy Spin and a Fast Ride

by on June 17, 2014

I planned to get out for an easy spin on Sunday afternoon, but a nap seemed like a much better idea, and then the smart idea to ride succumbed to the desire to sit.  My legs paid the price for that decision.  An easy spin would have helped the legs.

The easy spin happened on Monday.  The few riders out were willing to take a very easy pace.  It was so easy that my average heart rate on the ride was 99.  We arrived at the coffee shop where I planned to meet Mike B to map out our plans for LOL hotels, and we all sat and drank coffee and chatted.

This morning’s ride was entirely different.  Scott C decided from the very beginning to have a fast day (to make up for yesterday’s leisurely ride) and we rode hard and fast.  It wasn’t a record setting pace for me today, but close.  It was odd to know that I was the oldest rider out today and still was leading some very fast stretches.  You know, that feels pretty good.

As usual, the coffee shop ended the ride, since this was Tuesday, and once again, leaving the coffee shop was hard.

A good day’s ride.

Bible Verses of the Day (catching up):

If a man lies with a woman having her sickness and uncovers her nakedness, he has laid bare her flow and she has laid bare her flow of blood; both of them shall be cut off from their people. (Leviticus 20:18 NRSV)

Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing; but obeying the commandments of God is everything. (1 Corinthians  7:19 NRSV)
