Mountain bike ride, again about an hour and a half long. This was at the more challenging park and was loads of fun. I had a good spill. I was approaching an unfamiliar stream crossing. I saw where the path led but thought I would drop in to the stream a little earlier because the path was muddy looking. Bad idea. The stream and the mud at the bottom were deeper than I thought, and when my front wheel landing it sunk in and stopped moving. I went right over the handlebars and landing in the stream. I didn't hurt myself much (just a couple of bruises) but I was sopping wet for the rest of the ride. Luckily, it was warm!

Went for a light road ride. It was just 12 miles and an easy pace, as I went with my gf. She has not been a regular rider, so we're going to start riding every weekend so that she can build up to longer and faster rides. We hope that by the end of the summer we'll be able to do 30-40 miles. She found this ride pretty easy, so that's a good sign.
I should have gone mountain biking last night and to the gym tonight, but I am not feeling well. I don't know what's up, but I have abdominal pain and last night had aches and chills. Today it's just the abdominal pain. I hope I'm better tomorrow so I can bike.
