I guess “Never” means 15 hours

by on August 18, 2011

This Ride: 15.8 miles
Month: 513.8 miles
2011: 4,788.2 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 10,907.9 miles

I learned some things on this recovery ride, a short 15 hours after my 155 mile ride.

I set out with the goal of riding normal cadence but not allowing my heart rate to reach 120.  I accomplished that.  I was pretty slow in the beginning.  As my muscles warmed up, I was able to increase the pace considerably, maxed out the gearing in the small chain ring, and still kept my pulse in the 90 – 110 range.  I never realized that the small chain ring was so useful beyond climbing.

It was a short ride, but the right thing to do.

I’ll be getting my first leg massage later today.
