Boy are my legs swollen lol. 9 miles is the longest I’ve gone so far and I plan on breaking that record too. What I did was I rode to Beach Park which took about 16 or 17 minutes (not including the times I stopped at the lights and had to stop to drink water) then once I was there I sat on a picnic table and rested my legs for about 10 minutes. Then I got up and went on the bike trail and rode for about 9 minutes. I was going to do 10 minutes but my legs were just killing me. So what I did was I stopped and stood there for a few minutes and watched the 2 people on the 2 horses and waved then watched them pass me. Then I got back on it and went back to Beach park where I sat on the bench at the trail entrance before going back home.
I just can’t believe that I finally started riding my bike again. I think this is so cool. When I was a kid all I had was the bike, I didn’t have the helmet or water cage with bottle or the frame bag with the tools or the computer. It was just me on the bike. Not even any protective gear. And I also didn’t have the extra baggage that I do now with all this weight. That’s one reason why I don’t recall having any pain and swelling in my thighs.
Well, I just have to wait until I can do this all over again tomorrow and just hope that I go further.
