Getting lost, bonked and still had fun. Love Cycling.

Coming off a recovery week from a 8 week block of base work. I was feeling good this weekend.

Saturday, legs where responding and my sweet spot was … well ..sweet! Good RPM on small climbs and had response out of the saddles when I needed a boost. Legs recovered well and had a great day.

Sunday, I felt great for the first 30 miles, turned around at hour 2 and I bonked HARD. Head winds, terrain, and the surprise sprints from dogs chasing me really put me at my threshold. Last 15 miles was some of the most grueling pedal strokes I have encountered in a long time. Legs, back and hip were screaming at me.

When I finally got home, I just felt relief. Got the gear put away, got me a recovery drink and lounged on the couch. I expect days like this, and want these challenges to reflect on what I did right and what I did wrong.  Still stoked I did the ride and had a ton of fun. This is why I ride.

Monday, I am feeling great. Legs are a little sore, but I had no cramping. Really excited to start my next 8 week block today to prep for my first event on May 7th
