And it's Monday again.
Friday, I was in bed a little after 9pm, because I figured a little extra sleep can only promote the healing process.
We rode from the house towards Highway 11 along some beautiful backcountry roads with only very little traffic. I honestly think, we probably saw more cyclist out there than cars. Pretty neat. On Saturday was also an organized ride from Furman to Ceasar's Head, but we had no intention of actually climbing that mountain, we were good with getting somewhat close and then turn around. I haven't been out in that area for a while and it was fun to show Terry a couple of new roads!
I have never done a brick workout this early in the season. Every time I see a brick pop up on the schedule I get a little sour and then most of the time it doesn't turn out too bad. I also used this ride as an experiment on how the lady bits perform for 50 miles on a bike in tri shorts and can only say: bodyglide, bodyglide and more bodyglide... And no, I wasn't only wearing tri shorts in mid 40s temps, I had thick tights over the tri shorts... I wonder if that helped or worsened the situation?
