sunday’s ride

April 23rd, 2012 at 15:47

Brandon and I were supposed to go on a family ride this weekend, when he suspiciously came down with strep throat. We needed to get his meds on Sunday morning, so I took the opportunity to ride down to the pharmacy to get them.

On the way down, I was thinking, “WEEEEEEEeeewait… wait a second… this is suspiciously all downhill…” So yeah, getting there? No problem at all. 1.9 miles of enjoyableness.

On the ride back, I started out and made it about a half mile before I had to stop. Then another half mile and I had to actually get off and walk a little bit. Talked to a neighbor, hopped on for the last half and rode home.

Number of times I texted Brandon “Holy shit gonna die”: 1.
Number of times I thought I would vomit my teeth out: 2.
Number of times I realized I’m in horrible shape: 5378954748512
Number of times I was like, “WHY THE HELL CAN’T I GET MY FOOT BACK IN THE CLIP?!?”: 2.

    Just keep riding, it will get easier. I’m very impressed you got the clip less pedals.

    Well, really, there’s nothing better than slamming your shins into the ones without clips because they gouge you with the little bits that stick out to grip your shoe. :D
