I had a great bike ride today! Not the longest. Not the fastest. But there is something so very sweet about getting to do a thing you love after forced time off.
I made it up the hill in 9:20 which is a good minute slower than my PR but not too shabby for the first real ride in 6 weeks. Woo hoo!
And I was *almost* able to keep up with Bert. Though I’m pretty sure he was going slower than usual. Probably trying to build my confidence.
Then there was the horse. As I hoped, Now Voyager was thrilled to have me aboard once again. I kept it short and predict I’ll be saddle sore tomorrow. But it was pure heaven. Wind in my hair and joy in my heart. And a happy horse. Life is good.
I topped the day off with a trip to the dentist so now I have shiny teeth too. All in all a great first day back to land of happy-Kathleen.
This post is short and sweet…time to hit the hay. All that fresh air and exercise made me sleepy.
