Yesterday evening I gave a talk, along with Andrew, for SciTech North here in Fort St John. It was for one of their Professional Development Events; the turn out was small, but the conversation was good. Before we were at the SciTech event though, we went for another bike ride.
We went around the new hospital again, but this time we did it in reverse from the previous night. As you can see I went 0.40Kms further this time and I also was about 5 minutes faster. I didn’t expect to see this kind of result in the time, but it certainly felt quicker. I’m attributing the quicker time to the fewer times we stopped.
It wasn’t all easy though this time. As we did it in the other direction this time there was a bigger and longer incline and this was tough for me. I admit I could not bike the whole way up, but I didn’t stop. At the point where I knew I couldn’t bike any further, I jumped off my bike and started power walking myself up the hill. I could still feel the burning in my legs, but just kept pushing myself to move. This time around I also tried to focus more on the breathing, making sure it stayed under control. If I could just figure out how to breathe properly I would be less likely to stop so often.
I’m taking a break this Friday night though, going to relax this evening and then go for a ride on Saturday.
