Monday I took my first bike ride of the new year. Much earlier than usual, but much later than I could have. In fact, this winter has been so mild I could have ridden all winter through. Today I took my second ride of the season -- and realized my hinney is still oh-so-sore.
What I've read is to ride far you need to "spend time in the saddle." The more time in the saddle, the more comfortable you can be for longer periods of time...in the saddle. Last summer I worked up to 30 miles and felt great. Monday I rode 8 and my bum was not happy. Here's looking forward to spring and more time in the saddle.
Dan is on the phone making some hotel reservations.
He gave the reservationist our kids' ages and finished with "they're a little older."
I'm in awe that we're parents of kids who are "older" instead of younger.
When did that happen?
