Despite the slow pace (16.7 mph) and the short length (27 miles), today’s ride was not a recovery ride. The purpose was to stack a bit more mileage to yesterday’s century to see how my body responds. I felt very tired throughout and was actually very fortunate to find my friend Mike 5 miles before the end, because at that point I was counting the ft to the end. Nevertheless, I am satisfied with my pace given the fatigue from yesterday and the windy conditions. My pace today was a bit faster than my target for the challenge.
Now it’s time for a well deserved week-long break in Cyprus away from any sort of cycling!
