"3 Hour" Ride

The plan was to go for a 3 hour bike ride; it turned out to be a 3 and a half hour bike ride. And you know what? I didn't mind one bit. The day was so beautiful that I feel like I could have rode forever. The weather was perfect and the scenery was gorgeous. I'm really falling in love with biking. I have gotten more comfortable on the bike and with riding on the road. There are still some things I need to work on (like turning my head to see if cars are coming behind me) but I think that I am progressing well.

The great thing about today was that it didn't feel nearly as difficult as the last time we did a long ride. I guess my legs are getting stronger!

I plan on being very productive exercise-wise this week. I will post my plan for the week tomorrow.

If you're bicycle commuting, you may want to check-out my wife's blog, where style is just as important as the ride.

The triathlon portion though -- learning myself as you are too. This may take some effort!

The weather doesn't get much better than we had this weekend which made for some great workouts. Since you didn't mind the extra 30 minutes on the 3 hour ride does that mean I get to turn a 4 hour ride into a 5 hour ride?
