According to my schedule, Thursday should have been a long easy day, and yesterday a short one. But as I mentioned in my last post, I wanted to take it easy on Thursday due to a minor reaction to my second Covid19 vaccine dose. So I switched the two days. I find it important to be flexible like this.
So today was a long easy ride. I’m still working on improving my stamina standing while pedaling, because I enjoy it. Also it works similar muscles to hiking. I’m trying to avoid hiking downhill for now while my piriformis injury is slowly recovering, but I want my muscles to be ready for it when I get back to it. Both my HRV apps warned yellow day (“I’m not fully recovered, proceed with caution”) but I felt great.
This was an out and back on the Coyote Creek Trail. Some nice scenery on the way back:
