So far I have logged 43.3 miles this week:
- Tuesday, I did a hilly 13.3 loop over Paris Mountain
- Wednesday, I pushed through 20 (quite painful) miles on the trainer
- Thursday, I put another 10 miles in on the trainer, because lightning made it impossible to get into the pool which I would have much preferred with the butt pain (see Wednesday) that is going on these days
So now, I just have to figure out, where to do this! Of course I could do the loop, that I did for my last long ride, but I will be on my own and considering how many encounters with crazy people we had, I don't care to face this on my own.
Here are the options that I am thinking about right now:
Maybe the easiest loop would be the short 2.2 mile loop around the house with 161 feet of climbing.
Or the last option that I am looking at right now is the Green Valley Loop.
The loop itself is 11.3 miles and it's 5 miles from the house. Over this distance, it has 256 feet of climbing, that is much less considering the distance.... This is my favorite right now, because the scenery wouldn't be as repetitive since I will pass the same spots around 4 times and not 25 times like I would with the shorter loops.
I guess, I will decide what I am doing at the drop of a hat, so you have to check back to see what loop I chose to do! ;-)
