Commute Loop – 2023.12.28

Another wonderful commute and final commute of the year. Once again nothing much to report on.

I was feeling particularly strong today and my heart was much more responsive than on Tuesday. One advantage of riding a regular commuting loop with a target heart rate is that I can easily tell when I’m fatigued. For example, my heart jumped into Z3 in less than a quarter mile into the ride along the climb up Chateau Clermont to Democracy. Comparing that quarter mile to Tuesday, my average heart rate was up 6 BPM despite averaging 4 fewer watts. Not a surprise considering Saturday’s beach ride.

I spent a solid amount of time yesterday working on the cycling year-in-review post that’ll be on my website come Monday. A lot of nostalgia flipping through the nearly 600 pictures from last year, most of which came from the Pacific Coast tour. Left me really wanting to get back out on a tour. No tours planned for 2024, but I am looking forward to some new challenges in the new year.
