Theme of the Day: There are only so many hills in me!
|The trail wanders past this swampy-ness at one point.|
I think it looks like a good set for a Harry Potter movie.
The hills today, however, were crazy hard. What I haven't mentioned here before is that I also work out on our old Total Gym on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Yesterday I increased my leg exercises a bit. Between those extra moves and riding about 30 miles between Tuesday and Wednesday my legs are feeling the burn. This makes hills a bit more challenging.
I did fine at first. It wasn't until I rode over Egret that it really got bad. The overpass on Egret is both a hill and a curve. Today the wind was coming at a good clip right in my face. It was brutal. I made it over without stopping, but I did not make it over all of hills the rest of the way home. I made it home though, so I guess all is good!
