I absolutely hate waking up early, especially in the winter. Made the best of my easy day at work today and got my ride in early since I won’t be able to before the weekend.
Felt like I hadn’t been riding in a while, but it’s only been about a week, and I rode to work yesterday. My lungs didn’t feel like they’re getting enough oxygen at the beginning, and my heart wasn’t pumping hard.
After a safety break, I put some good tunes on and started mashing it back to the office. Felt better, legs were wearing out, but I raised my cadence and kept my heart rate up. Was feeling much better towards the end of the 2nd lap, and the ride back.
Intervals are on the list if I hit the gym anytime soon. I’ve got a long ride on Saturday. We’ll see!
