Distance: 17.3 miles
5 days till the 2009 BP MS 150, and I’m trying to get in just a couple of more light training rides before taking a couple of rest days.
Hit the Veloway this afternoon — lots of sun and a lot of wind (again). Rode and easy 17.3 miles and a nice pace…worked on riding harder through the few small hills on the Veloway.
Felt good, and I’m really happy with my new Eggbeater pedals and Keen cycling shoes.
I’ll hit a CrossFit WoD tomorrow and then one more shorter ride on Wednesday before taking two rest days on Thursday and Friday (OK, I’ll probably do a little rowing on my Concept 2 rower on Thursday).
Really looking forward to the ride this year, though early reports are for rain (boo) and wind (boo).
