I haven’t kept on my blogging of the 30 days of biking, so here’s a recap.
Well, after not keeping up, and not completing the original goal of 50 miles and 10k feet of climbing, I felt I had to make up for it. And the weather was just gorgeous, and I just had to take advantage, getting a ride in at 5 pm.
Legs were still feeling some effects of those massive 20-28% climbs, especially the brutal one up Marin, so it’s not like I was burning up the road up the mountain. Still, it was good to get out in this terrific weather. 56 min … yeah, not going to shock anyone any time soon.
I commuted into work on days 4 and 5. Day 4 was a little windy on the commute back, and not as sunny. On day 5, I woke up with a little bit of a sore back, so I wasn’t riding in with any sustained pace. I took the shortest, most direct route to work. For the commute home, the wind was really kicking up, so it was just hanging on while I make it back.
It’s raining today, so hopefully, it will clear up by this afternoon/evening. Otherwise, it might be a trainer night.
