Return to BASEics

doG dammit base miles are boring! My season-long training plan calls for a healthy stretch of base miles mid-year. Partly caused by the split mountain bike season we have here in Tejas. Sometimes I think that base miles were invented by coaches to make you so bored that you want to go out and to mega hard intervals.

I'm not there yet, but I probably will be by the end of this week.

My motto for the ride after a tough day...

Here's my tip today... don't ride on garbage day. Man, I wonder sometimes what people put in their garbage can. They can definately infect the breeze. And while drafting METRO busses can be fun, getting stuck behind a garbage truck's draft, well... not so good...

Three hours of base and it was time for reward!
