Today: 41 Miles 2000 ft of climbing. 134 miles complete.
Day 3, and I fell into the rhythm of being on a long bike trek, today. I was more diligent with continuous fuel, water and electrolytes all day and stopping more frequently for short breaks off the bike. It’s a long way riding for 1500 miles. Pace and comfort are everything. I felt better all day, at the end of the day and into the evening. I can hardly wait for tomorrow to get to going, again! I was in the moment, more today, and enjoying the moment and not anticipating what is around the corner is critical. Otherwise, I spend the day on the bike wondering about the next up hill, the next down hill and I’m never present where I am. And, then I could be anywhere, which seems rather silly.
We rode through a portion of the Olympic Peninsula, trees covered with moss and dense forest in all directions. We had rain for a small portion of the day and finished in the sunshine.
Rain, thunder and lightning forecasted for tomorrow, oh my!
