Welcome to base miles...

Hodge is out...I am in. I hate riding on the road, but it is a necessary evil. Eddie and I rode for 3 hours today, from the house out the comet rail trail and back. This is the first ride in about 6 months that has felt like training to me. It's good though, I need it. While my legs may be as strong as Eddie's in the gym...they are not on the road. Yes, I have some strength, but I lack sustainable power. I blame this on singlespeeding. There is nothing I can do on the SS that can mimic the consistent effort I just put out while on the road bike. So, unfortunately, I will be seeing some road hours....at least I have good company and rarely have to ride solo. I hope I start seeing results soon, I need the constant reminder that the road miles are worth it.
