Still working on letting my hip quit hurting. Now I don't limp when I walk.

Finally I have something to post!

My hip is feeling better and so I decided it was time to start doing something. I got up and rode my bike today...yeah!! 75 degrees and 75% humidity. I think I'm going to stick with biking for a while until my hip heals. Sorry Rye, I just can't run right now.

Rode toward Gerinamo down 20

 

Ecclesiastes 3:1-10

There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under heaven:

    a time to be born and a time to die,
    a time to plant and a time to uproot,
    a time to kill and a time to heal,
    a time to tear down and a time to build,
    a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance,
    a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
    a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away,
    a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,
    a time to love and a time to hate,
    a time for war and a time for peace.

What does the worker gain from his toil? 10 I have seen the burden God has laid on men.

Rode my bike again. Riding the bike does not hurt the hip at all. I rode a loop route that takes me through a somewhat hilly area. Some of the hills are 200' in elevation change in a mile. I lost some time in that area of the route but gained it back on the flatter areas. 20 miles @ 20 mph (no stops), that's my goal. I'm pretty sure I could do it on a flatter course as I slowed to less than 10 mph on this ride on some of the hill climbs.

Two bike rides today. I got up early and rode the 22.35 mile route that I did on Wednesday and then went and joined the "San Marcos Friends" for a 19 mile ride. This was the first time I had rode with this group. There were about 20 riders of varying ability. No real pro's but 3-4 very strong riders. I had ridden the route before but by myself. Throughout the ride there were four points where the group sprinted for about 3 miles. Mostly I stayed with the lead pack on all of the sprints but there were a couple of guys who were able to get a fair lead on a couple of the sprints. It's amazing how much faster you can go in a pack. We were averaging 28-30 mph on the sprints. My morning ride was a little slower than the day before. My legs were tired all day, I think with a few more days of riding like this I'll start feeling like I'm in better shape.

Rode with San Marcos Cycling Friends
Slow ride, Stops and Sprints - That's why the HR is so low

“[God Disciplines His Sons] Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” Hebrews 12:1
