Temps ballooned into the upper 50s on Tuesday and Wednesday this week, giving me ample opportunity for post-work bonus miles. The two days of riding into and around after work with nothing more than a base layer and a wind break on have done wonders for my psyche. My legs weren't initially sure what to do once they were allowed to see the sun and have the wind directly on them. That issue soon passed. 2.5 hours of post-work ride on Tuesday and about 3 hours on Wednesday were the result. My legs are feeling the results of time spent on my Singlecross, but I have an appointment scheduled with Cindy at Hands On Sports Massage tomorrow over lunch, so I should be feeling great for our team training camp in Arizona next week. The last ride schedule has us down for 450 or so miles for the week, with climbs up both Mt Lemmon and Kitt Peak. This will be my first time climbing real mountains, so I'm expecting to come back home cooked, but stronger. I plan on taking a rest on Saturday and finishing the Karate Monkey so it's rideable. If I'm lucky, I'll get to take a short test spin on the new drop bar set up to see what changes I want to make. That's about all that's going on right now.
