“Sometimes your only available transportation is a leap of faith.”
~ Margaret Shepherd
It was early in the morning and I was feeling a little apprehensive about my planned 70 mile ride. A recent modification in my planned long ride progression changed the weekly increments from 5 mile increases to 10 mile increments. It seemed doable except I hadn’t really riden 60 miles in fell swoop. My 60 mile ride was spread across 2 days. Remember? I wondered how my body would handle the planned distance.
I was wasting time on FB and Twitter, trying to find the needed motivation to help me begin my ride. It was the quote above that got me thinking. Faith, eh? Could it be as simple as having enough faith in myself that would allow me to pull it off — regardless of the prior distance? I knew the answer. I just had to prove it.
