晨骑记录 1

今天出门已经七点了,又万万没想到渡口人爆满,需要等2趟渡船才行,而且渡船载满客后原地停了一刻钟才出发,以至于我从到渡口到上船花了半小时,上船后到下船抵达滨江道又花了十五分钟……

之前都是和各种电动车挤在一楼,局促地站着累人,体感闷热更累人。今天大概是因为这种不必要的等待太令人烦躁,上船后我扛着车上了二楼,意外收货了宽敞的环境和怡人的风光。欣喜地出船舱到甲板上拍了一张浦江美景。

为了赶在10点回来上课,不得已缩短行程,骑到南浦大桥下就折返,回程本打算到面包店吃个早饭,也只能取消。又怕回来的渡船还是这么慢,于是路过了别的渡口看有船就直接上了,想着不管怎么样先到了浦西再说。

没想到我这个老浦西居然迷失在了……外滩。

外滩的马路上是不允许骑自行车的,之前和大部队晨骑,早晨五点多钟,警察叔叔还没上班的时候,甚至太阳公公都还没有把眼睁太大的时候,才敢借着大家的掩护一起飞速穿越外滩的机动车道,一个人出来骑,还是太太平平最重要。所以,我只能下来推车漫步于人行道,幸好最近把锁踏换回了平踏,不然穿着锁鞋走起路来那真是累上加累。

既来之则安之,上午的外滩观光台没有游客,有一种静谧之美,于是一路拍了几张照留念。边上还有不少沿着步道跑步的人。一直到了九江路终于可以上车了,骑过南京路步行街,骑过四川路桥,骑过那些过去我只在公交车上路过过的地点,别有一番滋味。

回到家已经九点四十,飞速喝完早餐冲去上课。

若不是大晴天,兴许没有这番好兴致吧。骑行的乐趣,真的是日渐更新啊。

跑步教会我的事

昨天甘肃白银越野赛发生的巨大惨剧刷爆各大媒体头条,没想到越野跑这项小众运动以这样的方式被大家知晓。遇难的21人中有不少国内顶尖跑者,包括超马纪录保持者、八百流沙大将军梁晶,年仅31岁。实在令人悲痛惋惜。

2017年我参加了TNF越野跑训练营,略微接触过这项运动,前后两次赴莫干山实地训练,一次恰好是雨天之后,山路极其泥泞,半只鞋埋在浆水里,到了傍晚体感温度骤降,夜里戴着头灯也需小心翼翼前行。最后的比赛日,本着“来都来了”的无理由心态,在30KM的正赛外还参加了6KM的比赛,当作热身。现在回想起来,其实是非常后悔的一次参赛经历,因为当时我感冒了。那样的身体状态下,是不适合参与这么高强度的运动的,对身体没有任何益处,甚至恶化了病情,第二天嗓子哑到一句话也说不出。

但是奔跑所带来的快感让我实在不忍心放下,恨不能常常远离喧嚣的城市,穿行于山野,与风云雨露为伴,尽享大自然的馈赠。那以后我陆续参加了不同地区的马拉松赛事,最远的一次去了日本。

身在这个业余兴趣的圈子里,就不断会收到更多信息和激励。随着国内此类赛事的蓬勃发展,看到各色各样的人参与其中,我又有了一个新的心愿:完成一次铁人三项比赛。俗称“大铁”。于是2019年我开始了公路自行车的训练,骑过早晨五点的外滩,和深夜十一点的世纪公园,用车轮丈量着城市。

骑车和跑步给我带来非常多的收获,但是随着年岁的增长,以及眼前苟且生活的“折磨”,渐渐地感觉力不从心,体检报告上显现出的大大小小问题让我开始审视自己对目标的选择,才发现一直以来都是过分自信,过分高估了自己的能力。同时,当我看到骑行的队友在赛场上摔断锁骨,在马路边出了车祸,看到跑友在烈日下脱水晕倒在终点时,深深地体会到,体育运动本该是一件让人健康快乐的事,而不是带来伤害与苦难。

给目标做了一次“断舍离”之后,铁三、超马等等就都从清单上删了去,一下子感觉轻松了很多。如今我还是隔三差五去公园慢跑几圈,偶尔休闲骑行,不折腾身体了。

户外运动的魅力在于人和自然相处时挑战了自己,愚以为“征服自然、征服山野”是非常愚蠢的想法,你去与不去,山就在那里,你来或不来,风雨不会休息。自然是不可能被征服的,我们能做的,是敬畏自然、尊重自然,并且在与之亲近的过程里,认识自己。如果硬要谈什么“征服”,最多是征服我们自己的内心。

再次为在白银越野赛中遇难的运动员默哀,天堂如有跑道,愿你们无风雨、无负担地跑下去。

千岛湖自驾之旅

也不知道这个时候来千岛湖合不合适,到了之后天气一直是阴凉的。体感还是很舒服的。

自驾出行似乎时间上有了更多弹性,来的路上就开开停停一路看看。选了湖边的住宿,于是早起能绕湖跑步早锻炼,十分惬意。

第二天我们临时起意租车骑游,搜了附近的车店,找到一家口碑较好的,选了一辆捷安特一辆喜德盛。老板很热情,还借了驮包给我们,可能我的脸上就写着“缺乏生存安全感”几个字吧……想着反正有自行车负载,也不用自己背着,又不赶速度,便把能带上的应急用品和食品都带上了,但是,事后证明还是带少了……

原先想着能否赶在天黑前环湖一圈,很傻很天真,傍晚骤降的温度和食物的匮乏使得我们不得不中途折返。回程时顶着寒风已经感到力不从心,路上几乎没有路灯,只能靠着我的车灯照明。后来听到背后渐渐清晰的音乐声,才发现有个骑着凤凰旅行车的大叔也与我们同路,他是当地人,非常熟悉路况,也是用着驮包骑行过来到千岛湖,于是我们和他一起完成了最后的行程,这是此行没有想到的插曲,能和有共同爱好的陌生人结缘一时,互相支持鼓励,又立马分开到各自的时空里继续前进,幸甚至哉。

到车店还完车,晚上九点钟,我们终于从饥寒交迫里解脱出来,吃上热饭菜,喝下醇香的鱼头汤。其实这次距离并不长,八十多公里的路,基本都是平路,但是却比我之前公路赛时的疲惫感强了几十倍,一方面是车型不同,车身设定也不是很合己,另一方面是对坏境的不熟悉以及对天气的预判失误,少带了衣物食物,未曾想到环湖一路几十公里没有任何店铺旅舍,打了没有准备的仗,能安全返回已是万幸。这才明白为什么很多人骑行千岛湖会在中途驿站住上一晚再继续了。

旅行的意义,骑行的意义,都比不上此刻两人在一起平平安安更有意义。以后可不敢再这么拍脑袋鲁莽行事了。

崇明骑行之旅

此行是突然起意,前些天人还有点萎靡不振,稍微好点就“说走咱就走”了。

之前从四明山回来后,就到车店做了fitting,调整了车把宽度,升级了车座,换上了锁踏锁鞋,最后把铝轮升级为了bora的碳刀。整个骑起来更舒适了,当然了,车本身更帅气了回头率非常高(虽然我很低调并不是很想引起注意……)

但是缺乏安全感的我还是舍不得拿掉一个水壶架,骑个短途都要备两个水壶,求生欲太强哈哈哈。到横沙岛的这天天气相当好,但是由于是五一假期,大巴车在路上堵了几小时,直接把我们的计划行程砍掉一半距离,变成了休闲荡腿之旅……

不过半天骑了双岛还是值得的,久闻崇明好风光,没想到真的非常惬意,风和日丽花香阵阵,都想留下来住几天了。

四明山骑行之旅

这次是和骑行组织一起骑游四明山,往返上海由大巴车统一接送,旅途轻松不少。

上山过程里开始飘毛毛雨,又遇到修路封路,以至于不能按照原计划的路线完成,最后分了两段,总共骑了差不多72km。这是我第一次爬坡,铝轮、尼龙平踏、负载不少的车身,不算轻松。路上遇到骑摩托车的驴友,还有自驾的驴友,从我身边开过都友善地竖起大拇指给我加油,可能大家不常看到女骑友吧,一路感受了不少陌生人的温暖。

从小在黄浦江边长大的缘故,对水特别有好感,而四明山的山水在雨中真是美极了。空气非常清纯,十分治愈。下坡时速度猛增到50km/h以上,那阵子心里的一些不顺意都随着狂飙消散了。

中午在山中景点附近小饭店聚了餐,听大家说各自参加户外活动的经历,轻松愉快。喜欢户外运动的人真的都自带阳光,特别好。

此行的其他收获大概就是见识了其他人更专业的骑行装备,考虑回去后也给自己的爱车升级一些配件。也需要做一个fitting,把人车调整得更舒适。

My second WCBA experience

参加了Adriana组织的wcba现场观赛活动,看到了仰慕已久的国手们,非常激动。赛后应邀写了观赛有感,存档纪念一下。

One day in June on my way back home, I saw an old lady around her 70s walking with some difficulties with her tricycle filled with cardboards and used cans. I guessed she must be on her way to the recycling station. I sped up and tried to help her push the tricycle without her noticing. It was only until we reached the recycling station that she saw me, and she repeatedly thanked me for the help. I accompanied her until the very end, and helped her to park the tricycle. During this time, she didn’t stop to thank me.  

After turning around ready to leave, maybe because I felt pity for this old lady, or maybe because it was a stressful period for me, tears fell from my eyes. Holding the basketball in my hand, I reflected back the memories from the past. I thought about the friends who used to play basketball with me. I wonder where are they now? How are they doing? Do they still have someone to laugh and sweat together with them?  

After that I searched online looking for a place to play, and I found Adriana, and I found MELODY. I still remembered the first time I came to play. The feeling of being unsure. And I also remember the first time I went to MELODY Queenbee for the team audition. The feeling of joy. I also remembered the three months I spent with the team from being someone new to becoming familiar with every one in the team. I was touched by the moments we had at the tournament when we had to fight together as a team.  

Although now I had to stop playing due to a physical condition, I am proud of the fact that I am a basketball enthusiast. Compared to individual sports, basketball is a team sport that test a team’s ability, a person’s mental strength, and other general skills. Basketball has taught me to learn to support my friends, and I learnt to respect others because of basketball. And this made me thought, if it was my team mate who saw that old lady with the tricycle, I am sure she will give her a hand just like I did. Because basketball people like us understand the power of “support”.  

This time with the organization by Adriana, I had the chance to experience a WCBA game atmosphere, it was really an honour. Last week I saw a game between Shanghai and Xinjiang, and today I watched the Shanghai team’s second home game, playing against Bayi. Playing against such a strong team (with many national players), Shanghai was not afraid at all. Shanghai was leading at the very beginning of the game. Comparing to the previous home game, the speed of both teams at this game was much faster. Jelena from the Shanghai team also played very well, she kept scoring, and was playing better than the last home game. 

Being able to watch national players who I saw on TV at the world cup and Asian games play live, and WNBA star players play in front of my eyes was an eye opening experience for me. You can find a guard player who is just 163cm and another post player who is 207cm on the same court. I guess this is the beauty of basketball, regardless of the physical condition of your body, as long as the team unites, magic can happen. 

Looking back, I am thankful for that difficult period in June. If it wasn’t that, I would not have experienced the amazing things that happened these past months. There is nothing that basketball can’t solve, if it can’t, come to Adriana to meet other female ballers who love this game who will support you!
