tease

So after a couple rides on my new mountain bike I had to send it off. It's currently on its way to Colorado where I will meet up with it on Tuesday. I've only had three mountain bike rides since the end of March! I love my road bike but I miss dirt roads, singletrack, and gravel. I miss the solitude of off-road riding.

I've done a good bit of intensity on the road bike lately, but not much endurance stuff. My knee has been touchy so I haven't wanted to over-do it at all for fear of putting myself out of training again. I'm supposed to ride 6 gaps tomorrow so my fingers are crossed that I survive! After that it's vacation time and taper time for the Gunnison Growler over Memorial Day weekend. I'm sorry to miss the BURN 24 hour race this year, but excited about going to Colorado. I'm currently registered for the 64 mile Growler, but in light of the lack of endurance training I'm going to talk to coach about doing the 32 mile race instead. She might want me to just go out and suffer, though, for training sake of course!

Don't worry ... you already have a strong endurance base. I think you should suffer through the 64 miler. After all, how often do you get to ride in Colorado?

I am pretty sure you should do the 64 miler. :)
