And that’s how I like it, 72 miles and change on the bike, cool temperatures, cloudy skies for most of the ride although it was early 80’s by the time I finished. Drove through to the ocean so I could slingshot myself up the Pacific Coast Highway and back again.
Four hours and thirty-eight minutes riding time and a negative split by two minutes. All the vitals were pretty good; average HR 120, cadence 88rpm and speed 15.7mph, not super fast but north of 15mph and that’s where I wanted it. Nutrition good, hydration good, t’was all good, sported some new compression calf sleeves, which were awesome (review to follow). Only downer was seeing a Coroner’s truck on the side of the road! Took some photos but the weather nixed most of them. So starts week 5 of training.
