i don't know why i bothered today, but i did. i had so much to get done today that did not include bike riding. but i fit in a very hard, short ride and i'm glad i did.
i did the eureka ride that i did a couple of weeks ago, except i figured out where i went wrong and this time i incorporated little tavern. the ride totaled 40 miles, 4500 feet of climbing, and 19.1 average miles per hour. the good climbs were tamara lane, woods, rieger, little tavern, hwy OO, and allenton. there were a few smaller ones in there that i don't really count. adding insult to my low fitness level was the incessant wind. wooooooooosh.
i was a little wobbly when i finished. i never let up the whole ride, and hit the climbing parts quite hard.
when i got done, i mowed the lawn, did laundry, took the boys to baseball practice, etc.
now i'm watching the beautiful mrs k work out. no way i could join her tonight.
