Recovery rides are over and my training has resumed after a few days of down time after the Ouachita. Rick da man had me doing some LT work today to get the machine back up and running again. When I have to do intervals, I usually do my workouts in the morning instead of after work so I am fresh and sharp instead of loopy and out of it.
This canyon rocks b/c you go from 5200ish ft to 9600′ at the top. I just rode to about 7000′ today. Good ‘ol altitude. I look forward to riding on top of some big mountains in a couple months – above treeline where the air is thin, the tundra is bare, and all you see is epic views.
Tomorrow is going to be a half day at work, and then a 4 hour ride at endurance race effort. I need to work on my pacing….
