Back in the Saddle

Previously published: Thursday, May 3, 2012

I’m riding my bike now. Very exhilarating, freeing. Yesterday I rode 5 miles. With my big toe, still very sore I was very careful about putting my gym shoes on. I met with David, the captain of the AA cycling riding team. He adjusted the handlebars, sprayed my chain will lubrication, and showed me how to properly use the gears on my bike. He reminded me to breathe through my nose, which could eventually cause my nose to bleed I was aware of. But he said it would stop after I was breathing regularly through my nose. I met two other AA cycling women, it was inspiring to see other AA women cycling as well. I have my helmet, lights, seat, and some sports glasses now. My next goal is to purchase the black riding shorts, get a pump for my bike, a tool kit, gloves, and a good water bottle for my bike. I don’t know if I need a kickstand or not.

8:30 am Today, I’m going riding before work. I had a bowl of oatmeal with a few sprinkles of almonds and cranberries and a bottle of water. I will be back in an hour. Shower for work, and leave for work about 11:00 a.m. I don’t know what happened to my headphones but it seems like I need to buy another pair AGAIN. UGH! 10:24 am Wow! I’m back. I rode eight miles on my Trek this morning, Had I used the Roadmaster it would have taken me an hour, today 30 minutes! And I was riding slowly, huffing and puffing all the way!
