Mountain biking Monday night

Despite the 64 thrusters I did this morning, my legs still feel okay (no DOMS yet) so I went mountain biking after work with John, instead of the usual Umstead loop, we did Rocky Road!  It took me a little over 90 minutes to bike the 6 miles of singletrack but it felt great to be out there. The temperatures had cooled down to the 80s due to an impending storm so I didn't die from heat exhaustion but the hills were killing me (I don't think I start breathing normally until after the first 2 miles).  It was still a great ride!  I'm getting better at all the downhills and now I need to work on my power up the hills.  It's one thing to just climb but when there are giant roots in front of you, it becomes an even bigger challenge (must take pictures of this).  I'm hoping enough times on this trail will get me to the point where I don't have to walk any sections.  Let's hope for the best!
