Lots of everything

It was cold this morning, no two ways about it but actually when we started rolling it wasn't so bad. It turned out to be a stellar day in many ways. A good group of 5 with everyone laying it down when on the front. I hate a long ride where I'm back there wishing we'd be riding faster...not today. Jay & I were playing who could get the most Kj. He won with 3280. LL probably a thousand more than that. Jay and I also had the same NP for the ride but his FTP is 310w.

My legs were pretty fair the whole day, not great. This was probably due to the 4 hr ride on thursday...I had a weird crampy feeling in my right hamstring that I thought would progress to full cramping but it never did. It went away in the last 45' and I felt pretty good up to the end. I'm sure that nutritionally I'm all out of whack...gotta get back on the plan.

This was a good test of my current fitness and I'm pretty happy with how the day panned out. Good riding you guys...

Wish I could have actually taken some decent pulls. My endurance sucks right now.

Don't worry...I have a feeling you're gonna be inflicting some serious pain on some mtn rides this year.

84% for 4.5 hours. I'd see your fitness passed the test today.
