Well, this has been a really good week of training for me. With the exception of a blowout on Sunday cutting my ride short I’ve had good days of riding. Sunday started with me doing a hill climb up Tunnel Road to Grizzly Peak Blvd. and up that to my friends house behind the UC campus. I was impressed that I made that 13.25 mile trip in 1:26:00. The work week was all morning rides except for Wednesday. I did between 17 and 24 miles for each of those four rides. Today I went with my friend Matt from work and did a big loop that had some crazy climbing at the end. I was really spent at the end of that climb, but I did it and I know now I’ll be able to do the AIDS/LifeCycle as long as I go at my own pace and take breaks…and stay hydrated…and get good nutrition…..and sleep. All in all it was my best week ever on a bike. I did 152.5 miles from Sunday through Saturday. I’m debating tomorrow being a rest day, but I’ll probably go out for an easy hill climb of about 20 miles or so and then take it easy the rest of the day. Don’t forget, you can sponsor me with a donation for the AIDS/LifeCycle at my ALC page. Thanks!
