I took my first longer bike ride yesterday, about 60 miles. I had taken 30 and 40 mile rides in weeks past but that extra 20 miles does matter at this time of year! Later it will seem like nothing, for now it was a bit challenging.
I came in at an average speed of 16.4 mph which is very good for me this early in the year. I'm so bummed that I can't take my bike to India and keep riding but I'm sure I'll find some way to "guard what I've gained."
More importantly than the stats, though, is that I really enjoyed myself. I don't like to have an MP3 player or anything when I'm riding, rather I like to just be with the Lord and my thoughts and it really was a very sweet time. I'm a little sore this morning but all things considered I'm feeling pretty good!
Hope you have a great day.
