Less than 2 days until the Front Range 50. I am feeling pretty distraught at the moment. My legs have felt like total hell for the entire week, despite a few days of good recovery rides. I tried to open back up today, and nothing would open and my HR would not go up. I have seemingly been on this rollercoaster for a couple weeks. I felt almost like this leading up to the Whiskey 50 and still somehow pulled out a 3rd there, so I am crossing my fingers that things will start to look up for me Saturday. Cycling is one of those sports where your body is always changing and it’s always a challenge to know if you are doing the right things.
They ARE predicting light rain and cooler temps Saturday, so that might work to my advantage…we’ll see.
On the bright side (pun intended!), it has been sunny and warm here. I really love the mountains. I just want to roll around in the soil and grass, and then lay by the cool stream.
I took 2 shots of FRS concentrate today after my ride, hoping it’s super antioxidant magical powers will get me going again. I have faith, I really do.
I also finally got some Skins Recovery compression tights! Tons of people swear by these.
I bought a pair last year, but they were too big and didn’t compress like they are supposed to. Now I need to find someone to trade me for the right size…. at least I have a new pair that is the correct size 🙂
Time to go eat and go do the Avery Brewery Ergon Mountain Bike Klinik!! 7 PM. Be there or be square… and half off pints!
