Dodging snails in the fog

February 15, 2017

This morning was a foggy, misty morning to ride out in the dark – I kept noticing these little things that looked like rocks in the road and wondered where they all could have come from in just one day – then relaized they were snails out for a stroll in the wet conditions. So my morning was spent dodging them which sounds easy but at 25mph sometimes it can be a challenge. LOL Yes I am one of those vegan guys who really tries not to do harm to animals – no matter how small they are.

The goal today was to be solid – solidly riding for 90 minutes at an endurance pace throughout the ride. It keeps amazing me how high of a power output I am able to do now with a low HR. It has to be all the time spent training at tempo and below pace. I did throw in just one sprint but was only able to get 802W for the 10 seconds. I was on the tank again in the wet so not sure if that has anything to do with it but I’ll keep trying.

Lastly – I had a bit of a binge on thin mints last night – Ha! But they were so good and I hadn’t eaten enough yesterday (at least that is how I justified it). But my message on that is to do what you need to do to be happy. It might be to work really hard – it might be to have the 6 pack abs and the beach body – just do you and be happy!

Ride safe and be well

Jon-
