I woke this morning feeling tired and drained. The impact of moving fromtraining rides to fully loaded touring definitely made my legs ache. Therest of my body feels good but I decided to take a light day anyway.
My experience with kayaking long distances has taught me that the firstcouple of weeks are when injuries often take place. If you are able tostart out slowly and let your body adapt you are much better off in the longrun.
Taming my own advice I found a Starbucks to have coffee at, made some newfriends and updated the website and Facebook accounts. After several hours,fully recharged and caffeinated I set out to pick up some items.
Having lost one of my BOB trailer pins the first day that was number one onmy list. I found a local bike shop that had them in stock and I bought 4.Next up was acquiring a map case since my zip lock baggy technique was justnot getting it done.
Success on acquiring those two items and I was off and out of town. It didnot take me to long to find a state park where I relaxed and tried tolighten my load. I still have a few things to get rid if in order to get theweight where I need it.
There is no way I will make the mountains on a single speed unless I reducemy load. Luckily I have some time to figure it all out.
I love the Salsa Fargo and am just so stoked with the way it handles andrides. Absolutely issues with it at all. Salsa you rock!
