Riding against the wind and through the hills on the southwest side was brutal. BRUTAL. My legs were still a little sore from the Mini on Saturday and I did kickboxing this morning (clearly not smart) .... so I nearly died out there tonight :(
A HUGE SHOUT OUT to Dan!! Thank you so much for showing me how to switch gears!!! Until tonight I had never successfully changed my gears. The last time I tried, I derailed the chain. Whoops. Not good. Dan was really patient tonight and showed me how to adjust the gears according to the ride. Awesome!!!
Gary, thanks for coming back to check on me :) That was the second valuable lesson: keep some people's numbers in my cell phone!!! I was calling my husband to get Gary's number from the list at home when Gary showed back up to make sure I was okay. While I was waiting for Gary's number from the hubs, a very sweet man came over and asked me if I was broken down. Only physically, I told him :)
Oh well ... I learned a lot and I'll be out there on Sunday!!!
