base miles

Part of what keeps an aging cyclist trained is base miles. Actually true for any cyclist, but moreso for us old guys.

I've been at the track so much, my base has gone the way of the dodo, so I got in 43 miles on Friday and 38 yesterday. Not staggering numbers by anyone's definition and would get me dropped in any road race, but still better than a 30 minute crit effort.

Headed into the heat and wind around noon both days and nearly bonked both days. Drained all my fluids in the 95 degree heat with SSE winds into the low 20s. Had to stop at Sonic for some refills. Hopefully as I get acclimated, this will be less of an issue.

Heavy bike mode, plus a camelback. I ought to be flying this Tuesday night :)

Cyclist to pray for: Todd W.
