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.

I commend you. I've been a slug this year haven't done a serious climb in months. It's probably time to suck it up and get some climbing in. Let's ride after you do the SF marathon.

Hi there... first time to your blog and want to shout a big THANK YOU! I'm new to cycling & have been trying to assemble my cyclops fluid trainer. I got so frustrated with the instructions it came with & googled for help. Your blog from Oct 2006 popped up and I was finally able to figure it out! :) Thank you, thank you!
