When the family isn't at home it's so much easier for me to get up early. Yesterday I was up and on the bike (Evergreen) heading south to ride sections of the Dirt Bag course. I was stoked to finally have a southernly wind. Although it wouldn't last long, as it changed back to the north in the early afternoon.
It ended up being one of those rides I didn't want to end. I so wanted to keep going but work dutied prevailed and I made the turn for home. It was most likely for the best too. The past few days I piled on some hours so the legs were feeling it.
I ended with 4.5 hours for a total of 17+ for the week, all in the last four days.
Off day today. Hitting the gym this morning for a warm up, stretching, and core stuff. Currently rain/snow is predicted for TNR. Hoping not!
Saturday is Ragnorok in Red Wing. First race of the new season. More of a solid training ride for me.
