Sembawang, 45 km. The last time I cycled was a month ago. Why the hiatus? Partly the rain, partly the train. No, I didn't get run over by a train. I stopped to train. For a long run. In the end, I covered 75 km last week. That's no big deal on wheels. But on foot, it's a big deal. It's my first ultramarathon.
Today, it's good to be back in the saddle. When the wheels started rolling, my face started smiling. Just like that. My face doesn't behave that way when I run. Let's face it, cycling needs way more equipment than a pair of shoes. But, cycling is more fun.
I'm a little embarrassed that today, I cycle less than I ran last week. But still, today is more fun and less pain than last week.
