Took a half day off, wanted to see how that would work for the continuation of my quest for no good reason, 100 gravel metrics in 2010.
Worked just fine. So I figure I can stretch my remaining vacation days while there is enough day light and do the half day off rides.
I was tired, couldn't maintain good heart rates, so I just trudged along, good training to ride "tired" sometimes. 5 gravel metrics in the last 7 days.
Weather was absolutely perfect, adds to the energy banks when your not overheating.Stopping for some drinks here at the half way point, well heck it's 5:00 somewhere.
Even got to see some buffalo on today's ride. I love riding country style.
Now the peculiar thing is I am waiting to do er again, a double this weekend. I Hope I can ride em harder then I managed today. :-)
Hope you had some fun today too.
