I went riding again! This time rode from home, then wound around the ‘burbs a bit before we reached the main trail that follows the river into the city. It was lovely! It was sunny and nice and there were quite a few people out and about (we left around lunchtime meaning there were a lot of lunchtime walkers and riders). There were a few hills, yes (including one that I had to attempt 4 times in increasingly lower gears before I finally grunted my way to the top), and also a children’s farm (goats! cows! children!), and then lunch next to the river because someone* was smart enough to suggest that food be packed before we departed. Finally, we rolled into the city (22km later) and had a beer, then later a coffee at a place we’ve been meaning to try for a little while because it’s apparently awesome (it was). I love cafes where you get a free biscuit with your coffee! Granted, it was only 1.5cm across and had I not recently discovered a love of marzipan would have been gross, but damnit, it was a free biscuit.
Running has reached something of a standstill (so to speak) while I wait for my leg to fix itself. We attempted a run the other night, and I made it 2km before I felt that familiar twinge…so I guess that’s a start! Thankfully, riding doesn’t seem to affect it (my leg, that is), so I continue to ride to work and around the place and hope (fingers crossed!) that it’s enough exercise for the week.
Sadly, that is all.
