Biking is fun!

Training inside on the trainer is like torture to me. I feel lethargic and I don’t really care. I find it hard to do intervals because I have no incentive. There’s no downhill, there’s no wind at my back.

Thank goodness for outdoor training!!! This weekend I hope to get in a good 60 to 80km ride. For the past couple of Tuesdays I’ve been doing some hills on Highway #5 because it feels so good. I even have a friend to do it with! I quickly jotted down my stats from last week and I did it this week too… I guess just to compare. It’s nice to know I’m getting faster… even if it is marginally.

Tonight is the mountain bike riding with the ladies, but I might skip it. The house is still a disaster from moving and vacationing. Plus it would give my legs a nice break.
