Well, today was my first day of work for my summer job at a Duke research lab! My job includes collecting data in the forest and working in the lab processing samples and data entry. So far, I really like it. I’ve been working in the lab for the past couple months, but the field work seems really interesting. But anyway, I’ve decided to commute by bike as much as possible. Today, the field site was 27 miles away from my house which means that I rode 54 miles today.
I actually really enjoyed the ride, the scenery was great and traffic wasn’t too bad. Carrboro is awesome, so many bike lanes!
However, I did learn that my legs are not in shape right now to do 54 miles daily. I’ll carpool some days and drive about 10 miles closer to the site some days as well. Hopefully I’ll still get over 100 miles a week. Sorry for the short post today, but I’m tired and want to get some sleep! The good news is that finals are over and therefore I should be able to post much more than I was able to during this semester! Hope everyone is doing well!
