Lorri took this FANTASTIC shot of me at the Cinderella Century:
Rode 30 miles yesterday (at a VERY slow pace) and came in OK, although still feeling tired and achy. One of the muscles in my thigh (left medial quad, if you must know) is painfully tight/sore even after a good night’s rest – a sign to me that I’m overtraining. I’m going to take today off, do a 1-hour light spin tomorrow, and take Wednesday off as well. I’m also going to see Curtis (my bike fitter) on Wednesday for a fitting. Next week I’ll probably get my bike tuned up.
I am, however, pleased. Ninety-five miles in a weekend in my fourth(?) week of training isn’t bad. I think I can now afford to ramp up more slowly, and take a “rest week” (recommended for every fourth week),
and still be ready for the Ride.
