I think I went around three turns today, maybe four, and they were very gradual bends. At the same time I went up one hill of any consequence. I am so happy that I didn’t have a head wind today because it might have killed me. I was doing sprints, and standing up in the saddle just to give myself something to do!
It was a great day for riding though, and I actually had a great time. A gentle breeze was coming out of the north and the temperature was cold but quite reasonable. All in all if I wanted to be a sprinter I think I would move to Saskatchewan. I could ride to my hearts content and do flat sprint workouts all day, of course the winter would kill me… details.
So I find myself I Regina, capital of Saskatchewan. The city really came out of nowhere, which goes to show how much attention I was paying to my surroundings, considering you can see the high rises coming from about 30 km away. It was with my head down, paying strict attention to nothing in particular, that I blew past the welcome to Regina sign and was shocked to realize were I was. Part of this was, as I said, I had only had to turn about three times so I didn’t really have to pay attention, and I was really enjoying doing sprints and I was right in the middle of one as I came into the city.
Now I have a day off tomorrow, time to do my much needed laundry! Also the Imax here is playing Wired to Win which I have been wanting to see for a while, so I think we will go see that tomorrow. I don’t really need a day off but I need to wait around for my presentation on the 28th. With the weather and organizing presentations around the schools schedules it has been hard to keep a good pace going, but after I leave Regina I am in for some serious riding, so I am not to upset over the extra day off right now.
Activity tip: Don’t get discouraged, results take time, but you will be amazed with how far a little work can go.
