Feeling Good on Monday!

Wow!  After a day yesterday in which I just about went nuts because I was forcing myself to rest, I went hard out of the gate this morning!  Twenty-eight and a half miles before work, with twenty of them at an 18.6 mph average speed over a hard and hilly course.  It’s pretty rare that I get the road bike out and hammer these days, so it felt really good.

I had two deer sightings this morning.  The first is actually standing under the tree pictured above looking at me.  It was pretty big, and may have been a buck.  It wasn’t quite light enough to tell.  The second, a big doe, exploded across the road in front of me a few minutes later.

By the time I got home from the first twenty miles, it felt really good to get on the Surly for my commute to work.  Every time I ride the road bike, then get on the Surly, I’m absolutely amazed how smooth and quiet that bike feels.  There is no doubt I made the right choice when I selected and outfitted that bike to be my daily commuter! 

How did your week start?  I hope it was as good as mine!

God bless…

    Love the windmill at dawn.

    I have never seen a deer on the way to work. I’ve seen coyotes, armadillos, skunks, llamas, buffalo, rabbits, a dead beaver, and even a peacock and a zebra, but never deer.

  2. I love hearing about people starting their day like this. Beautiful…..and so is the picture.

    Monday was a holiday here, so I definitely kicked the week off right…..got out for a great ride.
