So last night I’m deciding how far to ride today considering I’m tapering off some volume to rest up for the Uwharrie 20 miler in a week. You know, some decent mileage, but nothing too long so I don’t tire myself out. Something “shorter”. So I decide on 4 hours.
Later, I realize, “Good God! In what universe is a 4 hour ride short?” I have lost my mind. I tell you what universe– pro cyclist universe. Alisha’s pro cyclist frame of reference has transferred itself to my perceptions.
Had a nice ride, though. Solo again! I really need to plan ahead better so I can ride with people. I was out there about 4 hours with about 3:50 move time and approximatley 74 miles. Steady pace, not hard. I considered adding some tempo, but wanted to save myself to get a little more quality out of my Sunday 12+ mile trail run instead.
