Ahhh, that felt good. Yesterday afternoon I was able to get out for my first bike ride since Axel was born last week. I’m waiting for my new Trek Top Fuel 9.8 so I decided I would try Ian’s and ride our road. The six mile ride from our house to the mailbox and back makes for a great quick workout. There is about 1,500 feet of elevation gain in the 3 mile climb which means I can make it down the switchbacks in under 10 minutes and back up in 35 minutes. Steep road climbing is great training at this point in the season and the quickness of the tough workout is perfect for the mom with a 2-1/2 year old and a week old. I can’t decide if today will be another day of riding or if I should get out for a trail run but either way I’m psyched to be back at it!
