Day 18 with Tilda-Hilda


Tilda-Hilda took off later than usual this morning, because I was debating whether to take today as my rest day. I almost talked myself into skipping, but then I reasoned I would be rushing tomorrow as the Husband and I are going to see the air show at the airport. Hence, patient Tilda-Hilda and I pedaled off for a short ride.

So, I thought. Maybe if I didn't want to go up this hill (the one in the photo), it would've been a sweet, short, not-so-hard ride. But, then, no hard work, no healthy gain for me. Chug, chug, chug. I'm not a pretty pedaler going up hills. I gasp. I growl. I spit. I looked up at one point and saw a woman biker also pedaling a cruiser going down the other way. "Hello," I said. No response. She kinda had a disgusted look on her face. Oh-oh. She must've seen me spit. Oh well, as the Husband says, better out than in.

Anyway, we had another delightful work-out. Tilda-Hilda and I went about 9 miles in 49 minutes. By the way, I actually took the photo as I was pedaling. See ya.

    1. Quite true, G. The other biker might've been listening to something. She may also have been a bit tired because she had to climb up from somewhere to be going down the hill. Thanks for getting me to see possibilities. :-)

  2. I love that photo, which is a very California stretch of road for sure.

  3. Oh maybe she was thinking of other uphill climbs or she is just a sourpuss...I hope she had seen you spit:) Congrats on losing the pounds the right way! I also congratulate you on taking this photo while biking.

    1. LOL! I truly think she did. I try not to spit when I think there may be people around. Thank you, thank you. I'm going public this time, thinking it may help keep me disciplined. We shall see.

  4. Congrats- hills are tough, walking or riding a bike. I listen to music when I walk, so maybe she was in her own world or having a bad day. No matter- yay you for another great ride.

    1. Thanks, Terri. I hope I see her again. She's the first older woman pedaling a no-speed.
