Challenging myself to another 30 days of biking was a most excellent choice! Just like the 30 days of biking I did back in April this month definitely had it’s days where I wondered why I made such a silly goal, where it was hard to get out at all, and when I simply rode around the block just to get my ride in. There were days it was nearly too hot to function and days I rode in the pouring rain. Yesterday I rode with a hat and a jacket. I definitely chose a fun month to experience a little bit of everything in terms of weather. But hey, I did it!
Half way through the month my body was definitely feeling it – and it felt so good! I’ve always been the kind of person that is like “Oh wow, I worked out once, look how strong I am!” or “I ate some fruit, I’m probably the healthiest person ever” so 30 days on my bike has done wonders for my self confidence. It doesn’t necessarily matter if there is a physical difference, I feel awesome! I’d love to get to a point where getting out on my bike every day is something I do and don’t even think twice about. No matter how much I’m dreading doing it I have never ever gotten back and not felt excellent. After a ride my mind is more clear, my body feels great, and I swear my skin is prettiest after a light sweat.
After spending so much time off my bike at the beginning of summer I
was almost certain there was no way I would reach my goal to hit 1,000 miles
before the end of the year. While I’m still a ways off it at least now
seems like an attainable goal as long as I keep on pedaling.
last thirty days I have biked 155 miles, found a new favorite spot to bike
to, and regained a good portion of my confidence that was lost back in
April. I’d call it success!
