Standing up to my demon: an update

So, my son's dentist appointment didn't take as long as I thought this afternoon, so I found myself with some extra time, and I decided to go ahead and try to finish my 10 miles from this morning.  I was fully prepared to stop if my hip started acting up again.  I was also pleasantly surprised to see that the bike still had my 6 miles from this morning in memory.

So it was hard.  It was really really hard.  Harder than the 6 miles from this morning.  Harder than all 10 miles together yesterday.  But I kept at it as long as my hip let me.

Which was at four miles again.  Which was all I needed anyway.

I am so proud of this.  Take that demon! I can do hard things!!


  1. So proud of you!! I can't use my legs but I keep thinking of getting one of those pedal ones that stand free form and using it for my arms. Would be a work out either way!

  2. This is totally awesome! I'm so proud of you! Consistency is key and you are doing so great!! Just get back up every time you fall like you did today 😊
