Woods Out Back

Opted for a bit of cross training in the form of mountain biking this morning. Hit the trails in the woods out back, riding a hilly route that I normally run. Really great ride, and pretty darn muddy to boot.

Had a blast on one particular rolling downhill section that's around 3/4 mile long. Gravity was doing the work most of the time, supplemented with pedaling up the occasional short hill, and overall it's really fast but still technical enough to make it interesting. Good adrenaline rush for sure.

After making a nice appearance in the late morning, early afternoon yesterday, the sun has apparently gone back into hiding. Forecast isn't exactly looking sunny either. I kind of wish we didn't have the sunshine yesterday... keeping the sunless streak going longer without a break would have been much more interesting.

Mountain biked 8.2 miles @ 8.4/mph avg.
Trails, fireroads.
Very hilly.
Upper 40s, overcast.
Shorts, windbreaker, short sleeved shirt.

FYI, all the sun is beating down like a heatlamp on Georgia. Nice bike, tho, man!
