  • Mood:

I am Jack's aching lungs.

I just made it from my first cycle commute to work from the new place.
I'm going to die now. Send well-wishes and money to lady_fox.

Still the first person here though. :)

K.. Caught breath mostly.
Route: Park Ridge Dr to Gammon Lane to Schroeder Ave to Whitney Way.
Gammon is up hill from the house and the first leg of schroeder is as well. However, 75% of Schroeder is a nice incline down. I think I hit about 30 MPH (hooray for topping out gears) before I had to stop at the Beltline/Whitney intersection. From there things went to shit as I forgot to downshift before stopping and had to struggle through the intersection and up the small hill of Whitney.

It hit my second wind as I had to cross four lanes of traffic to get into the Westgate mall parking lot. Hurray for adrenaline.

I hurt but this is the most well earned exercise I've ever had. I'm so not using the treadmill at the gym today.
Now, to change into clean clothes.
