Just over 40…

May 1st, 2011

It’s early in the season and the weather’s been temperamental. After gaining the extra “few” pounds, I really don’t want to invest in “fat” clothes this year. With a gorgeous afternoon and only six weeks left until the Tour de Cure metric century, I need to put on the miles. I figure I’ll increase the ride an additional five miles each week until I feel comfortable.

Max and I decided to take a road trip to see his uncle, aunt and soon-to-be cousin. It’s eighteen or so miles each way, so I mapped a route with a detour to add the extra distance. Traffic was light and fairly friendly (except for the jack-ass that tried to make a u-turn in a tractor-trailer). Allentown got a little backed up and forced us on to the sidewalks for a short distance. Oddly enough not one driver flipped us off or screamed out their window. Next week we’ll try for forty-five and I’ve got just the ride in mind.
