30 years riding, 15 years writing
3 days off did me in, too much time off the bike.
Rode on Monday, didn’t get a chance to ride again till today. Tried to follow the Catorce training schedule but my legs just didn’t want to participate in time trial mode.
I did some hill work instead, made those legs pay for letting me down. I have a 5 mile route that I take through my neighborhood that hits all the major inclines, it’s granny gears in some stretches. That’ll show ‘em ;)
distance 11.64 miles, average speed 12.6 mph.
