So I'm tempted to sign up for a volunteer bike position that is currently just a hair out of what I'm physically capable of doing. It's for an MS event and it's a weekend event. It's a 50 mile 2 day walk but the bike support will ride 50 miles in a day riding up and back offering support to the walkers.
I think it would be a TOTAL blast and so much fun to be a part of. I'm concerned about the 12 + hours each day in the saddle though. Give me a horse and that kind of saddle I can sit in for hours. A bike? I'm gonna have a very very sore ass after the first day.
I know everyone already thinks I'm insane for attempting the 1215 steps next month (I think I'm a little off my rocker for that as well). I should just pile it on right?
What I'm going to do is see how I do in the 5 boro which is 42 + miles. If I can complete that, and get through the other rides I want to do in June and July and August, I'll sign up for the support staff. (Each of the other events are 50+ miles)
My dad wants to buy me a new bike and while I'd love a lighter bike I so love my Bison and I (once again) feel like I'm wimping out on her and not pushing myself.
Either way, I have a renewed reason to hit those steps at mom's building.
Speaking of which, do you know my calf muscles are STILL SORE?! That's right. Still They still hurt and I still wince going down the stairs at the boys school.
Monday I'll head back to mom's and do them again!
