Beautiful weather. Perfect for riding and running. Rode 40 miles and ran 8.
Had planned on riding 101 miles and running 1. Then changed my mind about mile 25.
Yesterday I made more bike adjustments. Didn’t plan on that, but when I was at Edge Cycles to rent racing tires I discover that my professionally fitted bike is not fit for me — Thanks Jim. My seat was too far back, by 2 inches. That explains the sore knees.
The good news is that within my first 12 miles I could feel the power of this new position. However, by mile 25 my inner thighs were screaming, and because I forgot to move the areo bars up by 2″, I was very uncomfortable.
Bad news is that I have less than six weeks to get comfortable with this new powerful position.
It would have been great to test my speed during a century ride in this new position, but my gut kept telling me to do a shorter ride and then run longer. Good move, because my legs are still screaming, even after having a massage. Feels like I did 500 slow & low squats. More good news: thankfully tomorrow’s recovery ride is only 1 hour.
No doubt it’ll be a perfect riding day too; looking forward to it.
