I finally got out for a ride today after work. I thought I was going to get out Sunday morning, but there was a problem with the pinewood derby car and I had to do some drastic changes right before the race. I ended up changing the wheels after a few practice runs. I guess I did the right thing since he ran very well all day and ended up finishing in 2nd overall.
So, I knew Monday night would be my chance to get out. I have bowling on Tues. and pre-draft for baseball. Then we have draft on Thurs. so I have to get my ducks in a row on Wed. night. I also just found out spring soccer practice is starting on Friday night, so there goes the week.
Since I have the Pisgah trip in two weeks and the group has been killing me on the hills, I thought I would go out on a hilly loop. I did a portion of the loop, but it was plenty to make it really hurt. It was not has long as I would have liked, but all I wanted as the sun was going down. I ended up riding 32 miles in 1:50 min. with 1400 ft. elevation gain. Plenty of big climbs to work those climbing muscles.
