I completed my first ride on the road since July yesterday. That ride was an unimpressive 13 mile jaunt around Lake Spivey and Lake Jodeco with a side tour through the golf club. This ride was a perfect warm-up for my Chattanooga training. My route had plenty of hills and little traffic considering the time of day. Unfortunately I messed up my Garmin and only captured a portion of the 35 mile, 2 hour and 15 minute ride. I know my pace wasn't what it once was but that just means there's room for improvement.
During a brief stop at a Rockdale County trail park I found a port-a-potty with my name on it. Maybe it's a sign.
The kind folks at Tara Garden Chapel and Sherwood Memorial Park & Mausoleum must have seen the results from my ride. They sent a rush solicitation to my mailbox with an invitation to enjoy complimentary meal.
I guess the folks at the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) don't love me anymore.
Today I walked 5 miles and rode the trainer for 30 minutes.
I'm feeling the pounds melt away (because I'm starving from this stupid diet).
