It feels great to lose the weight but more importantly I feel like I finally "got my legs" (and I know how to use them!).
There comes a time every training season when suddenly I feel like I can ride for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles.
It's a great feeling when I get to this point. It always happens when I ramp up my mileage and repetition. I definitely did that in the first two weeks of July. But then work happened.
|I started off the week strong with a 49-mile commute ride to/from work.|
The Cattle Industry Summer Business Meeting took place this past week in downtown Denver, making it tough to get in the miles, and I have a business trip this week.
As my brother Jonny Rocker said when he texted me an update on his progress, "Work is good reason." Did I mention he is retired?
So, hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go. Riding in this morning. Logging 24.5 miles on the way to work is a great way to start the week!
