It is so very nice to see you. I mean, I knew you were coming, but could you maybe chill with the blasting of humidity? That would be awesome, thanks.
This was my first big weekend of outdoor fitness in a while. We’ve had so many storms that I’ve ended up indoors more than I would like. So it was pretty awesome to be outside. The humidity wasn’t great, but it was proof that my sunscreen does work.
I do need to make sure I get in a bunch of hot weather workouts over the summer, since my 70.3 is likely to be pretty darn warm. It’s a little worrisome, since my pace (like almost everyone’s) slows in the heat, but the longer I spend in it, the easier it will get, right? Something like that anyway.
This weekend’s ride was only 30 miles, and I’m actually impressed at how not awful it was. I was tired when we were done, but not overly so. And today, my legs feel pretty okay. Of course, for a good chunk of it, I wasn’t seriously pushing, but still, 30 miles.
That said, in not so many weeks, I’ll be training 60 mile rides, so… we’ll see how I feel after those. I do need to cut some time off of my 30 mile ride to feel more comfortable with the time limits at Augusta, but I’m getting there. I just need to stick to it. I’m sure I can make the progress I need in the next few months.
