From 0 to 20 in 4yrs
Ok so I'm just guessing it's been 4yrs or more that I have last been on my bike. But last week I made a commitment to a friend that I would bike his 12k route that he does because I knew that our biking training was coming up this weekend.
OMG I LOVED it!!! It reminded me of when I was little and spent the WHOLE summer on my bike and went everywhere.....the wind in my ears and weaving in and out of paths....very cool. We even had a deer run out of the forest across our path to join the other two over in the bush....very cool!
I have to give a shout out to my friend for deciding to do a superman off his bike instead of hitting me....he he...sorry about that. But I am here to report that after I left him at his house and continued on to do a full 20k I wiped out too!! LOL! It was awesome.....missed a curb but recovered by going onto someones lawn..only problem I picked a lawn that had a knee deep hole in it!!!...which I made it over safely by holing my breath and closing my eyes...just when I thought that I was in the clear and went to go back on the sidewalk my wheel got caught along the side of the sidewalk and I ended up on the other side of the sidewalk on the grass...I have grass burn on my leg and a sore thumb from I don't know what....I LOVE it cause that's HARDCORE BABY!!!!
So pretty good for not riding for over 4yrs to doing 20k :)
Oh and P.S....running at night cool! Biking at night...not cool...unless you like the taste of bugs! ;P
