Finally riding again
Saturday, June 23, 2012
Well, first long ride in two weeks. I got into some pretty fierce poison ivy on the tenth. Three trips to the doctor and a ton of prescription steriods, and the body is responding nicely. I have had one early morning and one late evening ride during the last two weeks. I had to avoid the sun since the arms are still chewed up. Today I was able to use sunscreen on the arms and GET OUT AND RIDE! I rode 53 miles at a 16.4 mph pace and boy does it feel good. I will be able to start commuting again on Monday and I am really stoked about that. I'm thinking I will take on a self supported century early next month, depending on the weather. It's good to be back.
