41 miles today

Saturday, April 20, 2013

Wow, we rode 41 miles today, and boy are my legs sore and tired.

It was a little windy still, but less than yesterday. And a little chilly, but we can wear layers.

We started in Spring Valley (after we detoured due to a festival to get there). Then we proceeded North to Xenia and back. A cute ice cream stand we often stop at in Spring Valley has decided to be closed on Saturdays. This makes no sense to me. We then continued south to Corwin. Another ice cream shop we like there also seems to be closed/out of business. We continued on to Oregonia, where we would have had lunch at a cute restaurant we like. You guessed it -- closed. We ate the snacks I brought, but it wasnt really lunch. We returned northward back to Spring Valley.

40 miles today. 122 accumulated for the season.

As if that was not enough, then we had to come home and mow the lawn, for another set of steps on my fitbit.

Then we made dinner, and relaxed in the hottub for a bit.

    On Saturday (4/28) we rode again, 46 miles this time. We rode from Spring Valley, through Xenia, and out the new Jamestown connector trail, all the way through Jamestown to the very end of the trail. 46 miles total.

    It felt much better than the 41 miles last week. So now we are up to 168 for the season so far.

    I wasn't really expecting much from this trail, I thought it would be just through open fields and farmlands. But actually it was a very pretty trail along a little stream. The highlight was that we stopped in a field to rest, I picked it because it was near a little airport and my hubby likes planes. As we are there, 8 parachutists did their skydives, and we got to watch them float down.

    Wow. What a lot of exercise! Good thing you brought some snacks. The food gods didn't want you to stop on the way. emoticon
