Ride time 3:57
Been indoors and sick the last 2 weeks since Sourlands ride. Working my way back on the new to me trainer bike made it less awful slightly very happy to have a dedicated bike for that again.
Today I had one of those days of “free time” to myself with no real time limit. I decided on an out and back loop which doesn’t require me to think much and zero chance of me getting lost or missing a turn. Since the gravel bike in road mode was up front that’s the bike I used today. Plus wasn’t sure roads would all be 100% clear of salt and grime so better to have wider tires and disc brakes.
Was expecting cold and calm but as I got going I was really struggling the first 15+ miles and realized I’d been riding into one of those just enough to be annoying headwinds. I almost turned around and went home at mile 18 but roughed it out to the planned turnaround. The 25+ miles back with a tailwind was glorious.
I hit 50 miles and decided it’s gonna be a metric. Then I started bonking a little since I didn’t really carb and hydrate enough the last few days for this kind of ride. I did bring some stroopwafels i had from the Sourlands ride they hit the spot.
Pushed through and got my metric. Needed the fitness boost I am so done with getting sick every month. Weather wasn’t bad for March but here comes the next storm. See you on zwift.
