The Cycling Chronicles: The Morning After Rush
I rode my bike to work today. I’m still rehashing it in my head if it was a good idea or a crazy one. It was a good idea because I’d be able to adjust to a new schedule of cycling (late night bike runs are a bit… hazardous to one’s safety and health. Not that I would avoid night cycling totally though!). Crazy because I haven’t plotted out my proper route, and the weather seems to be erratic at its best. LOL.
Nevertheless, I’ll live.
Once again I forgot to do some stretching exercises and my legs started to complain when I got to the highway. The strain last night must have resurfaced adding to the pressure on my aching muscles. But then again, I bask in the feeling of muscle pains after fitness activities. It gives me proof that I’m really putting effort in keeping fit. But I think I need to rest up a bit in the evenings to have more “firepower” in cycling during mornings.
My front wheels must have hit something sharp a few nights ago making it flat while heading off to work. Good thing there was a vulcanizing shop nearby to cater to it. Well… so far so good. I’m not keen in buying a new set of wheels yet so I think a complete check-up is in order for my bike. Plus! I need to have a crash course in dismantling, assembling, and fixing a bicycle. Time to get dirty!
Wish me luck!
