Day 183 - Adventures Riding In Z2/Z3!

August 8, 2013          244.2 lbs

Today I had a ninety minute ride with 35-45 minutes in Z3. So I headed for the trail head in Arcadia around 4:30 pm.

There was a strong headwind riding from the Rio Hondo Trail to the San Gabriel Trail and the extra work had my heart rate up quickly.

There were several horseys!

By the time I got to the San Gabriel Trail, I had been riding for thirty-three minutes and my legs had felt like lead the entire time. The headwind wasn't helping. Then exactly at thirty-three minutes, my legs felt better.

Now, at exactly thirty-three minutes, I also happened to turn onto the San Gabriel Trail which put the wind at my back. But I'm sure it had nothing to do with it getting easier.
All the sudden, I was standing as I crested small rises and even though I didn't need to do it, I rode up to the top of the Santa Fe Dam.  Still difficult, but getting easier!

The ride back, also went by easily and quickly. According to Strava, I had even PR'd twelve times.

It was a good solid ride. Until tomorrow my friends.
