Well kiddies that is a big check-mark for me. With today’s little exercise session on the recumbent bike, measuring 12.5 miles (20.12KMs using the Queen’s Metric System), I eclipsed the 1,000KM total for the year 2011 (it’s actually 1,003KM, but who’s counting). To put that into perspective for you, that’s like trekking from Toronto all the way to Norfolk Virginia (passing Washington DC and waving at President Obama on the way). That is friggin far…
3pm rolls around and in a fit of energy, I grab the shorts and clip into Spritz. STOP!!! Wow, I didn’t realize my rear end took such a beating during last nights’ 45KM ride. I couldn’t even sit in the saddle (even with the extra Gel seat added). Now what? I need 18KMs to finish the 1,000 and I need to do it NOW.
It seriously felt like I was never going to get to the magic number, but I kept my head down and kept pounding away. I’m still having issues with my right ankle, but I guess that is to be expected. Tomorrow I’m headed to the last BFL game of the year and hopefully a post to follow.
