Well… hell

September 25, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Last night as I biked home I really worried I wasn’t getting any better.
Hills still seem very hard.
Some slight grades are tough.
In fact my commutes don’t seem to be getting much better and I still arrive quite sweaty.

So last night while a light rain fell and I waited for a light to change I thought of this. Wondered if all was for naught.

Then I got home. Stopped my various trackers and was told I beat myself on a segment.

This morning I still wondered about progress while crossinfg the Femont Bridge. Going up Dexter is still quite daunting but I should try it.

Yet when I got to work and stopped meters I had gotten personal bests on 3 segments. Apparently I am getting better even if I don’t feel it all the time.

Thing is the toughest part of my commute is the fact I ride in traffic nearly the whole way. Having to compete with cars and trucks, being cut off by taxis, and the persistent worry about road rage from commuters it’s fine. I’ll figure it out somehow but for the moment just keep at it.
