Also I do not have enough ice packs.
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that I haven’t been riding enough this summer. But I went out on the trail and attacked it with the same speed and vigor as last year, though I didn’t go quite 26 miles this time.
I really should have taken it a little easier. My quads are ON FIRE. Too many hills, too hard, too little practice.
The good news is that I wasn’t really tired, so my heart and lungs appear to be in reasonable shape.
I’m sure my legs will recover. And I promise I’ll throw the carrots out so you don’t have to be afraid to eat at my house.
But in the meantime, ow. Owowowowowowowow.
