bike ride no. 2

by Giro


I just arrived back from bike ride no. 2. 

My legs are wobbly and my wrists are shaky.  

We'll call today ride to work practice no. 1
I have some serious getting in shape to do.

I did not ride from my house to the studio because I'm quite certain I would not have made it back home.  It is a steady uphill climb from the studio to my house…a steady 2 1/2 mile climb.  And, since I have not been to a spin class in…oh..we'll just say it's been a long while….my legs are not ready for that just yet.  Instead I ventured around my neighborhood looking for the smaller uphill climbs (there are many) and I did them for at least 20 minutes it must have been an hour!  It will take many practice runs before I'm ready to make that journey.  Until that time, I'll be the one riding around my neighborhood in my daughters pink helmet (I must get my own) on my golden chariot, with legs burning like fire and sweating like crazy.

  1. It sounds like you got a killer workout. I'm envious as I sold my bike.

  2. I don't think I'd last 5 minutes on a bike. I'm sure you're in much better shape than you think :)
