Typical...I wasn't super excited to jump into the TNR. I was tired, it wasn't as nice out as I hoped, and going home sounded real good. But I knew if I didn't go the guilt of not would tear me apart! As always it was a great time and I am super glad I went.
Despite the wind being out of the N/NW we made our way to St. Joseph and the 4 Whores. It was here that my legs and body finally warmed up. Endurance leg issues! On the road into to Rockville there was an exposed culvert we had to navigate around. I was first and took the opportunity to put in an attack. I knew there was a stop ahead sign at the roads end but I forgot how long the road was. I'm still using my CX bike so I ran out of gears with my 46/12...can't wait for my road bike!! Even with a road bike I would have been caught. Fast dudes.
Next it was the Alp. Despite feeling like a sausage in my kits I do ok on the hills, usually behind the front few. The effort on the back side was harder than going up. Again I ran out of gears...and power. We meandered around out to Richmond before making our way back to St. Joseph and home.
Stats: 20.7 mph, 54.4 mph, and my first KOM on Strava, ha!
Easy spin this morning and off to work.
