I biked on Sunday for the first time since last fall. I didn't have any trouble with my injuries, but I'm still getting tired a little faster than usual. I only went about 5 miles, and I went kind of slow. Ruppert kept going for a while when I turned back, and he caught up with me again at the end.
We made several crucial mistakes today. We should have checked the Towpath announcements. Brian assumed the construction near Valley View would be done, not so. So we got ourselves lost in Cuyahoga Heights and Valley View trying to get back to the highway going the right direction. By the time we got to the other reasonably flat, reasonably paved section of trail near Hudson, it was about 5:30 pm, and it's getting dark near 7 here. So we had a short, 6 mile trip, and then grilled. But we forgot the grill tools. We used plastic knives and spoons to push the burgers around. At least I made the burgers this time, I am so sick of the compressed chewy, artificially red hamburgers that come preformed in the meat section at Giant Eagle. Blech.
I almost forgot... we went out for 8 miles on Sunday. I had a headache, so I wouldn't go further. We also ended up going really slowly because the trail was closed and we were riding on the road behind some other people, and I didn't feel it was safe to pass. I'm going to try to figure out how far we've gone this summer. I think maybe 60 miles total?
Yesterday we went 12.5 miles the other way on the Summit Metroparks Bike & Hike trail, which was fine except the part where we had to ride on the road for about a mile, on big, evil hills. Not cool.
Today we went to the Akron Arts Expo. It was a fairly big show, with lots of people. The peak temperature today was probably 88, and it was really sunny. The humidity was down today (but will be up again tomorrow). I got a bit toasted while sitting at a picnic bench and eating my "ji-ro".
