Route: 7 miles – contains the first 3 inclines of my road run & ruck walks, plus a couple more inclines and a nice gradual one at the end.
Climate: Cool 75+ with wind….seeming to oppose me in every direction I turned my bike except for Eastward.
Time: Took me approx 35min to complete. Not bad considering it’s my first ride this year!
I did my dynamic warm up & cool down stretches as usual.
One thing I learned from a cycle friend of mine a few years ago is to, “Keep pedaling, no matter what.”. Similar to my keep moving forward mantra, huh? Basically, even on a decline you always pedal and adjust your settings so you are pedaling and pushing the gears, not just coasting or coast-pedaling (i don’t know if that’s a word, I think i just made that up, but basically you are pedaling but you are going so fast that it doesn’t do anything positive). As with my runs, I always push harder on the inclines than anything.
It was a good run.
Keep moving forward.
Be strong for you.
