A real nice 18 mile ride through the "Big Boy" loop. Switched out to a 32/17, just to add a little extra torture. Heart rate was great-maxed at 192 today. Plenty of power. It has been 3 days since I have ridden and I wasnt quite sure how I was going to feel. Turns out I felt great. Maybe the break was a good thing.
It is time to gear up for some cyclocross action, now. 40 minutes of pain and suffering. Those crazy Europeans! My goal this year is to do at least 10 cross races and try to be competitive and place. Yes, early season hopes and dreams. Anyway, tomorrow will be an easy road ride at lunch.
