Pouring tonight so the indoor class certainly seemed to be the way to go. Yoga, 20-minute warm-up and a 40 minute ride with wind ups and sprints at the 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40 minute marks followed by some slow, slow turning of the 53x12 at the end.
I've noticed two things recently. My heart rate seems to be recovering much better now. Nice to see the graph drop off on the backside of an effort. And, my legs are starting to turn quicker. I know that I'll never have a top cadence like many people have, but it has been years since I've been able to pump the pistons over 160rpm like I did tonight. Hit 166. Maybe on Saturday I'll be able to eek out 170.
Still thinking about doing the crit on Sunday. We'll see.
Oh yeah, pretty much nailed the fit on the new roadie but new shoes and saddle had me hurtin' a bit.
