Day 22: A long bike ride
Saturday’s are fun because the plan calls for a long bike ride. Because I’m in a “recovery” week my effort throughout the week has been set to the the effort from 2 weeks ago. That means that Saturday’s ride was set at 25 miles at a moderate pace.
I’m still trying to increase my average pace but this was not the ride for that. I left early and met up with two work colleagues and we rode up into the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
It was beautiful. The weather was perfect and for huge stretches we were alone on the ride. I couldn’t ask for anything more.
