Another Day, Another Hill

Cycling has been in my thoughts lately. That's partly because I've
been a bit frustrated with my running lately for several reasons that
I don't have time to go into right now, and also because the Tour has
been going on. I'm supposed to be tapering for the San Francisco
Marathon, but the mountains where calling me. I haven't done any
climbing for several months so this really hurt, but it was so worth
it. I was a bit discouraged at first at how hard it felt, but then I
realized that I didn't have my climbing cassette installed. My largest
cog was a 25. While that may be a climbing cassette for some people,
there is no way I could have done Angeles Crest with only a 25 even
just a year ago.
