For some reason, I can’t seem to pull back from the edge of over-doing it the past couple of months. My morning commutes have been characterized by thigh burning double climbs through Southern Hills followed by extended routes giving me an hour of cycling before I hit the office, all at a pace that is nearing anaerobic. My evening commutes typically consist of putting my head down, my hands on the drops, and plowing into the wind. My average speeds are consistently running between 16.5 and 17 mph through town. More telling is the mileage I’m racking up. In April it was 837 miles, May was 823 miles, and June will end with 815-825 miles.
At times, my legs have felt kind of heavy, but the endorphin rush I get from hard exercise keeps spurring me on. It feels good! I don’t want to stop or slow down!
But…I’m taking the weekend off. Have a good one!
