Okay, not actually died, but I felt like I was going to. I don't know what happened. I only managed to make it as far as I'd gone the other two days this week (about half the distance to campus), but it was SO MUCH HARDER. I thought I was going to throw up or faint. Even though I kept stopping to rest.
Kevin and I have been trying to figure out what the different variables are that may have made this SO MUCH HARDER today. If any of you know anything about exercise / bicycling and want to weigh in, that would be appreciated. Today I...
- was carrying a leather backpack with Macbook Air, sweater, and very heavy book
- had breakfast, and two cups of tea, but didn't drink any water this morning
- biked in early morning, instead of late afternoon
Tomorrow morning, I think I'm going to try biking with a lighter canvas backpack and just the Macbook Air to the workshop I'm going to at Lincoln and Fullerton. And drink a big glass or two of water beforehand. See if that's easier. Any other tips???
