Good solid bike on tired legs

Greg is back! Time trial night, but a short workout. We did a few one leg drills, a couple 3 minute warm ups for time trial, then settled in for a 20 minute ride. I was a gear harder than the last time we did this, kept the cadence about the same, 90 rpm. Last time my heart rate was up between 135 and 140. Now, in a harder gear, remember, it was between 115 and 120. I guess this training is having an effect after all. I had just one spot where I was figetty on the bike, and once that passed I was good.

I have to admit I was a bit worried about my legs. The hams and calves have that pre-cramp feel, so I wanted to stay smooth. I might have been able to get through the trial in a tougher gear or two, but then again, maybe not.

1:40 ride.
