“We’re doing Timson?!”
That’s what I heard as the ride organizer handed out the route slips for last night’s ladies’ group ride. Even without asking, I knew that meant we were going to do some climbing.
The street called Timson is one hill followed by a short plateau followed by a hill and so on for about two miles. We only really climbed about 300 feet over that stretch, but it felt like work nonetheless.
After the ride, I was talking with a friend who moved to Michigan last year from California. When I said that we had a hilly ride today, she promptly differentiated that this was Michigan-hilly. Not actually hilly. No – I did not climb switchbacks up a mountain. Sorry. I can only ride what we’ve got here in the mitten state, and for Michigan, it was a hilly ride. So hmpf. ;)

Bike 32 miles at ladies’ ride
It was a hilly ride and the longest I’ve done yet this season. I was supposed to do 10 minutes of running after the ride, but my legs were pretty toast, so I opted out. I really need to do a couple more brick workouts before the tri. I’ll just have to be intentional about it over this last week and a half.
