Went for a 13-mile bike ride with Shannon today, and I am wiped. Such a short ride, and I am so tired! I'm terribly out of shape. I've been getting no exercise but walking for several months.

So the first half of the ride was very hard, since it was all uphill. I was breathing hard and my heart was freaking out. But the second half was fun, since it was all downhill. I think those are in the right order, because I finished the ride feeling pretty good.

I may write more about the ride later, but right now I just want to collapse.

Shannon goes on 40-mile bike rides once in a while. No way I could do that.

13 miles? I can't even imagine...I'd be beyond collapsed.

It's really not that far on a bike. It probably took us a couple hours.

Given that I think of much more than 5 miles as "really far", I think it's funny you describe twice that as "short". I suppose I might change my view were I a cyclist, but this seems to apply to both on-foot and by-car for me. So, I say, "Hooray! you made it 13 miles!".

I really don't think 13 miles is that long for a bike ride. Shannon goes on 40-mile rides occasionally. But I'm out of shape and got very tired.

So, I say, "Hooray! you made it 13 miles!".

I think I probably am not really acknowledging the accomplishment, so allow me too to say, "Hooray!"
