This was a hard morning

by on July 29, 2010

This Ride: 20 miles
Kona Distance: 2,305 miles
Month to date: 517.1 miles
2010 Total: 2771.5 miles
Pace to 5254.8 mile goal in 2010: (2.4 miles ahead of goal pace)

The title says it all. I’m tired. My legs are like logs. Right or wrong, the only thing that got me out this morning was the goals I have set, and that probably isn’t smart. As it is, I’m really considering not riding long and hard tomorrow.  All I need is 33 miles to meet my goal for the month.  That’s the breakfast ride and 8 more.

My goal was to ride with a heart rate under 140, and use the day as a recovery ride.  I got out of the house a little late and prepared myself to be blown away by the peloton passing me.  As it was, I never saw them.

What helped most this morning was that as I neared the south end of the trail, and after considering shortening my ride, I met Jeff who turned around and joined me.  We went to the Naval Academy Bridge, watched the sunrise, then rode steady back home.  I wasn’t much of a conversationalist, but that worked ok.
