Push'n the pace

I went out on a wickedly hard ride today. I rode at 10am, which is quite early given my record over the past week- most of which consist of 2pm – 5pm departures. It was good to finally get out the door before noon though. I rode with Blake; we went on a five hour ride through the mountains with some intervals. We averaged somewhere in the range of 215 watts… It was pretty crazy, but we both felt good so we kept going. In the last 20 minutes I started to bonk, but the ride was done- it felt good to get out and finally do a nice hard ride at altitude with the legs & lungs actually open. Tomorrow will be an easy coupla hours so it’ll give me time to recover and shake off some of the post ride pain. I love the roads around here, the weather’s holding up well too.
