Me being so smart just grabbed the pump on my way out the door, still in its package. So when I got to where I was riding, it was super challenging to open!!!! It was majorly zip tied! It was comical trying to open it. Luckily one of my friends had a nifty knife and I was able to use my pump!
I had never pumped a road tire before that was a lesson, I think I'll have to teach y'all!!!
Okay it's a SERIOUS arm work out pumping a tire!!!!
I rode Wasatch Boulevard.
We road a 30 mile loop. 2 hours 12 minutes and my avg. pace was 13.5. calories 1997!!!!
A first for me I GU'ed!!!!!
I felt awesome pretty much the whole time EXCEPT for one NASTY climb. I could not for the life of me shift into a easier gear to climb! It was AWFUL, I climbed the whole hill in a HARD gear @ like 3.4 mph. My legs are SO sore tonight, like throbbing!!! I LOVE feeling the workout after though.
So I headed straight to Bingham my bike shop and in a matter of minutes. I learned that a) I was shifting wrong, so operator error. b) There was a wire hitting something making it difficult to move the chain, the way he explained it was WAY to technical for me :) I was in and out with my bike fixed super quick, so the next climb will ROCK!!!
I hope everyone enjoys the rest of the weekend!!!
Do you like to feel the pain after a workout?
