Recovery Week

I was due a few days of rest after my Kansas adventure so I’ve been working on that. I think I had forgotten how to rest, that’s a shame really because I used to be really, really good at resting. Last Wednesday I had to go to Shreveport for some doings on Thursday.  June 20 early rideI decided to take my bike and show up for the 6am morning ride. It had just been almost a year since I last did this ride and I am in a little better shape now so of course I needed to tag along with the fast guys. This ride has been going on for over 30 years, it goes off every morning, year round at 6am. Sometimes there’s 2 riders and sometimes there’s 20 riders but the ride continues to take place, Mike Cook and Dick Goodall are the true mainstays over the years.  It’s a simple 15 -18 mile ride with a couple of hard sprints and some good socialising along the way. Last year I really struggled and got dropped pretty hard toward the end, this year, I hung with the fast guys and rode very good to the finish. I suppose the training for a year has helped.  This was the first ride I had done after my Kansas race and the legs were a little stiff but it was fun.   Now it’s back to training, I plan to do the Longhorn 70.3 in October and I’ve heard that it is a little hilly.
