Another good ride. I am trying not to obsess over the mileage, so I've been keeping the bike computer set to display the average speed instead. Of course, that means I obsess over the average speed a bit, but maybe that's a good thing. Yesterday was a hilly route, and I averaged 14.8 mph. Today was much flatter, and I averaged 15.3 mph. That's pretty good for me!
So of course the point of all this biking is to get used to a variety of situations, and just generally get tougher. Today I came home with:
1. My shins coated with gravel.
2. Giant sweat stains on my shirt.
3. Two saddle sores the size of nickels (pre-existing).
4. A grasshopper in my hair.
How do you like me now? Am I tough enough yet?
