Extra Ride Day

The great Corporate Holiday structure.

I always loved seeing a calendar full of corporate holidays. It meant long weekends, less work, paid days off…and now, extra ride days.

I took advantage of the latest installment of corporate holidays and rode a nice relaxing 22 miles. It was great to not push it (except for a little sprint here and there) and to take in the air.

What was especially gratifying was knowing that I am usually cramped up in a cubical staring at my computer screen. Even though I do enjoy my job a ton, I definitely prefer the bike riding option.

It is definitely not easy training for a 70.3 while working full time, and going to school, and working side projects. But holidays make great opportunities to add in those extra base miles.

The next holiday is not really a corporate one (even though it should be) but we are taking another day off for it. St Patrick’s day will be fun and will be filled with running. And of course some Guinness afterwards.
