53 miles and 3,400’ climbing. Worst climb was toward the end with a quarter mile at 16% and ‘leveled’ out between 10-12% for the remaining three quarters. Then another 1/2 mile climb at 6% getting home. I feel wrecked.

Update: Little did I know that I was carrying the beginnings of a cold, courtesy of my grandchild. That explains my extreme exhaustion.

I've been reading the "stiffness" thread and I feel wrecked! :D

Well, if by dry you mean itís so hot the sweat evaporates from your skin before you even see it, then yes, itís a dry heat :)

supposedly only 82 degrees during a quick 10-spot lunch ride to a fave lunch spot before work but felt hotter up a few little hills.

kinda regretted not driving to/from the destination at the time (realistically takes 30 mins to cool down pre-shower in the summertime)

but feeling better now about my decision to ride instead. would i do it again? ...yeah but prob 30 mins earlier.

Well, we aren't much about being "positive " here, except about being absolutely positive about things regarding which we are factually wrong .... but we will try to at least be kind until you feel art home .....

I didn't ride yeste4rdfay because just as I was going out i got a phone call about a possible problem at a rental property .... by the time I haver calmed that situation, it was too late and I was too drained to ride. Plan to go out early-ish this morning to get those essential 15 miles I missed.

At the pace I ride, 15 miles is a serious investment of time. But hopefully I will get out there before the serious heat builds up.

3.25 miles! First ride since my fall two weeks ago. Just fairly level ground so I could keep it under 200 watts. My instructions are to ride short distances without pain. Mission accomplished. 😊 I hope to do a little more each day.

A slow 16 miles O.D. after almost a month off the bike.

Badger6 08-28-21 01:12 PM

120km, because I was late, and my wife was mad af....otherwise it'd have been more like 135. It was the Groene Gordelroute around Brussels, ran into the Brussels Cycling Classic, UCI Pro race. Pretty legit. The phots are of the break, I video'd the peloton that cam by about 90 seconds later.
