Getting in Gear

ORN 8/16/05: 50 minutes, road bike.

Holy COW is it hilly! I was hoping to get in some rolling hills but never expected to find myself having to stand up on the pedals. I also didn't expect to be wishing I had bought a road bike with triple front chain rings.

It's not a bad thing. Actually, the standing and pedaling is a pretty good way to build strength in my legs without pounding them like I would if I was running uphill. It's also a good way to get a serious cardi workout without a lot of impact.

I'm trying to be a little careful as the week goes on so that I'm ready for the 16 miler on Saturday.

Waddle on, friends.
