This ride was tough. I set up in front of my computer so I could watch a movie. I put in Avatar(yes, I have never seen this movie). I decided I would ride hard for 10 miles, stop to check on Ava and continue. This provided about a 30-45 second break.
My legs were tired. I kept pushing. I tried to keep high cadence while in the big gear up front and middle in the back. I did this for two sets and then moved to the hardest level to tax my legs. I just kept pushing even though my legs were dead.
I struggled mentally around mile 28. I wanted to quit, but I made myself keep going. It felt good to sweat. It felt good to challenge myself. It felt good to have my legs feel like jelly.
Here are my results
I feel good about this ride. I am sore. My legs are fried. I can feel the soreness while walking up the stairs. I feel like this was my breakthrough training session for the week. I have eaten very healthy today. No slips or snacks. I feel back on track. I feel like I will be ready soon. I need to finish the rest of this week strong for my taper next week. I really hope to see a major decrease in my weight. GETTING IT DONE! was put to the test today. I am glad to report I passed.
