Last week was a great training week with 14 hours of total saddle time. Some of that was just driving but others included a lot of interval work. Today I was able to get out and get nearly 2 hours in the saddle and am certainly feeling the effects from last weeks training. The 30mph winds with gusts up to 50 certainly didn’t help either but that is part of life, riding and racing so you have to train in the elements you will be riding in. The legs are sore to the touch right now and after tomorrow I think I will be very deserving and ready for several days of recovery and then back at it again!
