Only two weeks into my chain, and already I'm having trouble maintaining it... This past week was rainy, which meant no trail riding. I was hoping for some sunshine over the weekend, but by the time Saturday rolled around things changed -- I ended up sitting inside on the computer, working on a high-priority issue from the office (despite the *beautiful* weather!).
I had begun to rationalize breaking the chain ("two weeks isn't much of a chain yet"), but a 4-hour pick-up volleyball game on Sunday brought me back around. It was perfect weather (and the sand was hot), and the sun was just what I needed after a stressful week at work. A short bike ride on Grant's trail afterwards put me at 6.5 hours for the week (26 miles + volleyball).
..and man, I am sore!
