Or, amazing was a difference 30 degrees makes.
Since it looks like my new "flat" permanent route won't be approved for another week or so, I went & rode my EB200K again today.
Unlike two weeks ago, when V & I rode it during a record heat wave (smart, we were not), this weekend was lovely with nice cool temps.
Two weeks ago when I reached the mile 75 point I was thinking to myself "50 more miles? No way!!" and promptly made a beeline for the Orinda BART station. But today when I reached that same spot I was thinking "50 more miles? No problem!"
And I felt remarkably good at the end. Now if I could only climb a bit faster ....
More later. I need some shuteye.
