I want to ride my bicycle

Every single day!




I got out today for a short ride on my bike and it was awesome! I did a nice moderately hard 30 mile ride in 1:29 then cooled down with ride through the NMSU campus for 4 more miles. Words can't describe how great it felt to be on the road! I mean, I love sitting inside on the trainer for hours and hours throughout the cold winter months, but there is nothing on earth like riding down the road on a sunny day tucked down in the aero position. And I must say, this guy knows his stuff. To be able to hold >20mph on my own for my first outdoor ride of the year was such a pleasant surprise! I guess the grueling 2 hour workouts with 4 x 20 minutes in the 53/11 paid off afterall...

Now it's time to throw on the bikini and get some sun while Jonathan finishes up his 80 mile ride. Then off to the pool for a short swim. Life is good

Damn...you must be doing something right with your bike training if 20+MPH is a moderately hard ride. Awesome job! Can't wait to hear more from your training camp.
