Had It With The Heat

Plan: Two rides today. A session of four five-minute long intervals at 110%FTP early in the day. In the afternoon a tempo paced trail ride.

Result: It was 102° today. Simply no way to do any intensity in this heat. So... it's the aluminum highway...

The second ride was in the afternoon, on trail. During a "cooler" part of the day. It was only 96°. Luckily much of the trail is under tree cover. Helps. But shields the breeze.


It's all roots and powder today. We really could use some rain. Bad.

The split day worked well. Got the intensity, got the duration, avoided the heat. This is going to be the pattern for next few weeks.
