Mexico, here I come!!

Posted by bizcoachjason on July 29, 2007

On September 29, I am riding in a 50-mile organized bicycle ride in Mexico with a good friend.  The route is from Rosarito Beach to Ensenada, through the hills and valleys and along the oceanside.  My wife and I participated (and finished it) two years ago, and I am training for it again.

 

I rode 42 miles yesterday — from home to the North Branch Bike Trail; north on the trail to the Mile 11 marker; then back.  The muscles just above my knees were twitching just a little bit towards the end of the ride, but otherwise no adverse effects.  Today I feel fine!

I’ve been riding about once a week and adding distance each time.  I think I need to do some shorter rides in between to help strengthen and not over do it on the longer rides.  Finding the time to do it is tough. 

I have been holding that vision of the countryside at the top of the hill and racing down the valley towards the ocean fresh in my mind as motivation.  It was truly an incredible experience, and I can’t wait to do it again. 

Also, this time, I will be better trained and in better physical fitness, so I should enjoy it that much more.

More to come on my preparation . . .
