With Reger. The plan was slow, flat roads, whatever distance, learn to use aero bars (first ride with them other than the trainer on Wed.). Probably spent 1/3 of the ride using them. Cheater bars... gain 3 or 4 miles per hour with no extra effort. Sweet! Now I'm going to feel like a slow poke without them. Started with some breakfast at Waffle house (grease it up). 4 hours 10 min. Kind of a base ride, aerobic work in zone 1 and 2 and no anaerobic stuff at all. The legs wouldn't have wanted much more anyway after this week. Finished with a 17.5 avg mph. Stuck it in the 140 to 155 hr range and left it there. I don't get to ride a steady pace for that long very often. Finished with 146 avg hr. for the day... about 20 beats higher than Joe. Our flat ride had 3700 feet of climbing. Only a half a dozen dog chases (always on Joe's side). 1 check of the map. Started in on the cycling shorts leg tan white thigh look already. 2 store stops and Joe stayed consistent with the little donuts for extreme power. Great ride day.
Leslie says Peachtee cashed our checks for the race - so we got numbers.
