Here, look at this
And this is what I saw from the front of our house this morning, out toward the SW where I normally ride. Plus it's colder here than at the airport, it's maybe 5 C. Plus, if anything, Calgary weather rolls in faster than is expected.
Tell me true, would you have saddled up for a bike ride? I didn't want to. I didn't sleep well last night, and feel very much like going back to bed. Still, I'm trying to be good, and follow the workout schedule. I dressed about the same as last week, and it worked out ok, though I should have worn another pair of socks.
Warmed up for 30 minutes, heading down 37 st, and west on 22X.
6 x 5/3, with the 5 being hard, cadence 65-70. Turns out I misremembered that part, was was trying for the 60 to 70 range.
Cool down another 20 minutes, back at the house in exactly 100 minutes.
This was a tough ride. Quite windy, and riding so much in a harder gear or two than I normally would. Maybe it's just as well, I couldn't spin worth beans, even going downhill. Tried to pedal smoothly, and stay strong. This wasn't hard on my heart or lungs, but was brutal on my legs. When I got back I was wondering if I'd underdressed a bit. My legs were chilled, and didn't want to stretch at all. Had a warm shower instead. I'll do some yoga after running some errands.
