Ok, sorry, it’s been a while since I was here last. The fam and I took a week-long vacation to go to Southern California (where I was born and raised) and hit up Disneyland and see a couple old friends. After a little rain, the trip turned out to be a blast.
Well, before the trip I hit 60 miles. That was the furthest I’ve ever been on a bike. I almost made it the whole way without any complications, actually feeling better than I thought, but with about 3 miles to go we pulled up to a stop sign. At that moment the exhaustion and fatigue set it. I noticed I was about to stop right next to a pile of sand and debris and thought “Oh, I don’t want to put my foot in that!” At that point my bike was pretty much stopped, and before I knew it I was tipping in the opposite direction. No real serious damage to me or the bike. Although, a couple of teeth from the chainring found their way into the back of my leg. Again, nothing major.
And now that I’m back from CA, someway, somehow, I managed to throw my back out. So I’ve been poppin’ the Tylenol for the past few days and hoping to feel better ASAP so I can get back on the bike and logging in miles. Also, my Nike Altea shoes should be waiting in the mail when I get home. I found them on a Craigslist post in WA a few weeks ago and offered to pay shipping. I used to work for Nike and I’m a HUUUGE Nike addict, so I jumped on these shoes which are top-notch, but now discontinued.
