I definitely over indulged on Christmas day and ended up sleeping in like a log and missed the Mount Diablo club ride. I woke up with a pulled muscle in my left shoulder which was due to my dog pulling to get to a leaf on his walk on Christmas Day. I felt so lethargic that I only wanted to do a short easy ride so Sandra and myself dusted off the tandem for an excursion to Ruby Hills Starbucks.
It’s a while since we have ridden the Tandem but it felt familiar. We kept up a pretty good pace into the strong headwind on the way out even though I was really suffering in my left shoulder and neck. After a refreshing cup of Coffee the ride back was much nicer and we made good use of the tailwind. I couldn’t resist opening it up on the climb up cross road and we rode pretty hard to a respectable time of 6m40 which is only a minute slower than my p.b.
A good fun ride.
