I'm so happy about my work schedule this week! Todd and I have the exact 2 days off. Which means today and tomorrow Todd and I can get out and bike together. Today we biked from Mukilteo to the Everett Co-op just for the heck of it. On our way we got a little lost so that added a few extra miles to our trip.
We decided to stop and take pics on the Inter-urban bike trail...
|This ones a little blurry but I still like it =)|
It's amazing that even though I work out so much at the gym that I still have mental blocks about going up hills on my bike. This one hill that Todd zipped right up was killing me! Going up it was so hard that I was swearing to myself (out loud) and telling myself that I couldn't do it. Of course whenever I do that I get off my bike and give up. On the way back I decided to to just the opposite and it worked! Whenever I got to a really tough hill I would just shift my gears to the lowest setting and say things to myself like "Go Lorrie go!" or "You can do this at the gym so you can do it now!". That probably sounds crazy but whatever!
When we arrived back home I checked Todd's bike computer. His computer said we had gone 23.12 miles! That's the farthest I have ever rode my bike in one day ever!
