Today is my cross training day which means I went for a nice bike ride. I'm really enjoying riding again and I'm finding that having a schedule is helping me stick with it. I'm not sure what will happen after the ATM but I will change my training plan and make sure it still incorporates bike riding.
We set out to do a big loop and that's exactly what we did. It's a pretty nice ride. The only part on a street is within neighborhoods so the traffic is pretty tolerable (the rest is on trails). We tend to ride while most people are commuting home. We work earlier hours to allow us to spend more time outside in the evenings.
The ride was pretty uneventful. I kept my bike in a gear that was easier to peddle but required fairly consistent work. I felt like it was great exercise but my quads weren't killing at the end.
It was a beautiful day for a ride and nice to focus on something other than running.
