What a difference a couple of days off makes. My legs were feeling strong again, I was relaxed and enjoying the scenery again. My skating style has matured slightly, with me realising that I don’t have to push as hard as I have been in the past. In the past I have pushed as though I was sprinting, trying to get every drop of speed out of the board with each push. I now sacrifice speed for endurance and take it easy. It makes a big difference in the long run.
It was misty until 10am today. A heavy mist than clings to the trees, hovers over the swamps.
As I was having a break at a petrol station, I met a New Zealand couple on their way across the US in a car. They were from Christchurch.
Had to take a massive detour off HWY 20, because of a lack of shoulders and heavy traffic. Smooth back road. Camped in the backyard of a church.
And what the hang is with this?! Piggly Wiggly This is a grocery store I came across today.
