If you haven't already figured out by now, Adelle and I just moved to a Downtown San Diego apartment to start out our first year of marriage. Why not live it up right? Well, last night, I was finally able to grab our bicycles and port them to the tiny dwelling just in time for a ride with my Uncle Romy this morning. It's been a little more than a year since I first started riding and what a great way to celebrate it with a ride to Pt. Loma. I broke down my ride on my Garmin Edge 500 into two parts: Warmup and Actual Ride. Off the bat, Downtown is a lot different than the hills of my old neighborhood but I was betting on the hill to Pt. Loma Lighthouse. Casually navigating my way around Downtown, I quickly noticed the lack of an actual bike lane instead replaced with a bike path that is shared with runners who, if running in pairs, span the width of the route. Suck really, but I made due.
Here's the warm-up phase. I kept the cadence up and you can notice my steady heart rate. The stop lights as well as roads kept me from a constant flow, but it worked out.
I went through areas of San Diego that I've been wanting to venturing out around and I got to do it with the guy who got me into it. Constant spinning & quick accelerations proved to be a great way to kick up the cycling again! One more month till the San Diego Tri-Rock (Sprint Triathlon). I probably might want to start working on the swimming portion eh?
