Beer Geek has a few days of leave he has to use by the end of the year. Because this year he’s covering the office during Christmas week, he’s decided to take a few random days off between now and then. Monday was the first of those days.
Being the good wife that I am, (stop laughing), I asked him what he’d like to do on his day off.
His response? Let’s bike to Mad Fox Brewery and back.
Although my immediate reaction was “hell.no.”, what came out of my mouth was “Sure, I can do that.”
Let me tell you a little bit about the planned ride. It’s hilly. It’s 5.5 miles each way. Some biking in traffic is required. It was windy yesterday. And, oh yeah, it’s HILLY!
And the farthest I’d ever ridden before was 3 miles.
I did it. Even on a bike whose gears kept slipping. Even without shorts with padding.
And then, just for fun, I did a strength workout from Best Body Bootcamp.
Walking up the stairs is near impossible and I can’t lift my arms, but woohoo! I biked 11 miles. Go me. ;o)
Pretty sure this will make today’s run a whole new level of challenging.
