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!
