Today was my first bike commute of the year, and wow I forgot how tired my legs get after working all day. I tried some different routes today from last year, which were more direct, but they take me away from separated bike paths. They also seemed to be much hillier routes, so my legs got even more of a workout. My speed was pretty slow, but I managed to get it done, and probably did my body some good.
This weekend will probably be a shorter run (though still double digits), and next week it’s another trail race. Although this time it’s just a 10K race, I’m looking forward to getting back out there again.
Oh, and as a bonus, because I promised a friend, here’s a cute cat picture to make up for being late with yesterday’s post.
