So it appears my favorite form of exercise these days is on two wheels. I have to say I am REALLY enjoying the biking. I am not really riding with a group, as the matter of fact, only one ride I have been on all year has been with anyone. So it is just me, the bike and the paths that crawl throughout Orange County.
I do miss running though. One of the reasons I have not really been getting out there has been that it has been so freaking hot! Now I realize I live in southern California, so the heat is really relative, but it has been more humid this year than it has been in the recent past. Another is something that I noticed recently, and that is my friend Heather moved to Texas. I have just not been motivated to run. I have on the other hand, been inspired to get out on the trails and see if I can set PRs on courses I have rode recently.
Now as I mentioned above, I do 99% of my riding solo. My running I did a majority of it solo as well, but a lot of runs with a groups or just a couple of select friends. There was definitely a more social aspect to it. I really enjoyed the comradery and I miss my friend (that is another post for another time). I would like to hear what other people’s experience with this has been. I know there are a LOT of people who really don’t care for running at all, so this is a question for people who have done both.
I know I need to get back out on the trails (and on my feet, not two wheels) and will try to do just that over the next few days and weeks.
But I won’t give up the bike.
