I am like the Rainman, I need consistency on my rides. But today I made a brave pact that I would take a new road up a hill because of construction. It was similar, but different. I had to navigate narrow sidewalks, and a standing start from a muddy driveway to a hill. It is steeper than the usual, and I swallowed my fear and bullied myself into knowing that I could do this, it is the same old hill but the topography is a bit different.
It was mentally hard, but my body thought it was easy. I need to conquer more small hills. I want to climb with confidence, and not fail. I am happy I started a new thing today.
