Being at the beginning of a training cycle, I thought maybe this time I would actually do some kind of cross training to see what benefits I could possibly reap. Rumor has it cycling is good for the quads… ;D … so I suggested to James last night we go for a bike ride for a little XT. I’m just thankful he decided to leave the tri bike at home and take something I could keep up with.
This was my first ride of the summer. We only went 10 miles (16 km), but my shoulders and arms are like jello and I won’t even mention how my sit bones feel. My quads hurt the least. Hey, it’s a start.
I have a goal of riding to a cool old barn up at the end of the trail, an overall 50-mile ride (80 km). Who knows… maybe I’ll actually make it this year before the rain begins again.
