I set another personal record today - over 21 miles in one trip! This is up from the 14.6 I did yesterday.

  • Total Distance: 21.27 mi
  • Average Speed: 13.3 mph
  • Max Speed: 24.1 mph
  • Total Ride Time: 1:35
  • Calories Burned: about 1300

I was only going to do two laps around Haines Point today, since I was still sore from yesterday - two laps there and about four hours sitting on the lawn to see Lord of the Rings will do that. But, after two and a half laps, I decided to go for it.

I’m not going to lie: I’m kind of proud of myself. Well, proud and a little suspicious. On Tuesday and Thursday of this week, I managed two laps. Yesterday I did three, and today I did five. It’s both exciting and a little weird that I was able to pick it up that quickly in the span of this week, but then again, I know it’s going to be tough to drag my ass out there a few times a week and keep doing it consistently. I know I’ve still got a ways to go before I can ride to work three times a week - it’s only 10 miles, but mostly uphill - but I’m getting there.
