My purpose? I reassess my dislike for biking.
That's my confession. Last year I was all gung ho on buying an expensive road bike. I did my research and settled on a Carbon Raleigh bike. I was excited to get it and have another form of exercise. The only problem is I was terrified to ride it. The very first time I road it, I already had the clip in pedals. I fell right away in my own drive way in front of the kids. That wasn't the only reason I was scared to ride it. I was so scared someone was going to hit me on the side of a country road and leave me there alone. I've seen far too many
So yesterday it was beautiful out. Low 70's and not much for wind. I pep talked myself all day to just go out and do it and when I did, I promised myself to take it easy and just enjoy the ride. That is exactly what I did. I took it easy. Didn't push it hard. Took in the views and the fresh air and I actually kind of enjoyed my ride. I didn't go far but far enough to realize that my bike rides like butter and I sort of felt like I was getting a hang of this thing called biking.
Do you bike to cross train or do you enjoy it more than running?
Also, when my husband reads this, he'll feel smitten with himself. He told me that buying the bike was a bad idea and that I probably wouldn't even use it. He was sort of right.
