I discovered at a very early age that if I talked long enough, I could make anything right or wrong. So either I’m god, or truth is relative. Either way: Booyah.

Honestly not too much to say about this ride. After yesterday’s century I knew I wanted to get out for another ride. I checked GVC and the rides were all either Cat B and slower, or would be too long. I settled for just spinning around the neighborhood.

After my last recovery ride through the neighborhood, I had thought about making a “figure-8” style route and this is what I settled on. Worked out pretty good and managed to get in four circuits before my pre-determined hour was up. Legs were sore at the start, but they felt better and a little less stiff afterwards.

Overall, I accomplished my goal as I was in Z1 for heart rate for the duration of the ride while remaining in Z2 or lower for power for over 99% of the time. Had to put some power down to get up over some of the humps. Pretty sure this route will be my go-to recovery ride if I’m unable to find anything else on Sundays.
