back on the road

Today I went for my first bike ride in several weeks and it felt great!  All body parts (back, wrist, leg) felt good this morning when I woke up so I decided to bike over to Sausalito for my lunch meeting.  I took it really easy on the hills and paid close attention to my form at all times.  I constantly reminded myself to have a light touch on the handle bars (protect my wrist), engage my core muscles (protect my back), and notice any extra pressure or tension in my legs and keep my pedal stroke smooth (protect my hamstring).  Verdict:  I’m back on the road!

the workout: 14 miles

spinning easily & paying attention to form…  this is also the first time I can remember ever being comfortable going around the towers on the bridge in wind with other cyclists and tourists!
