Still Riding in Holy Week

by on April 5, 2012

The demands on my time this Holy Week have ratcheted up considerably, especially since my colleague gave birth on Tuesday and we’ve had more people than usual with significant medical issues.  I’m still finding time to ride, although I must admit … if it were not for the impending Flèche, I might have stayed in bed several of these mornings.

Tuesday I did stay in bed.

Wednesday I rode a very easy ride with three others.  Although we didn’t push it at all, I turned in a respectable average speed and a very low average heart rate.  I noticed more noise coming from the front hub of the Mavic wheel, so I got an appointment at Bike Doctor to have them look at it next Tuesday.  Meanwhile, I’ve contacted Larry and will drop the wheels off with him today to have him take a look at it.  I don’t want a seized wheel to stop the big ride.

This morning I was out on the Fixie and rode most of the route by myself.  I got dropped on Old County and never recovered the distance.  I still put in my fastest average speed this year on the Fixie, so that’s a nice accomplishment.

These Rides: 50.6 miles
Month: 79.7 miles
2012: 1013 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 14,866.6 miles

Days to Flèche: 9
