For once, the weather was nice though. We met up on Saturday at 8am and the seven of us went for a tour of Caledon, in places I can't wait to go back to. Peaceful, beautiful and with little road kill.
|Hilly group ride - I could have done 50k more!|
Hills have been on the menu for most of my bike rides (swims and runs too!) lately (I suspect that my coach secretly loves to torture me). Just see for yourself, those hills intervals were intense... but also a lot of fun, especially downhill!
|Hill repeats x 9 - because we all love to hate them.|
As for the middle of the week bike workouts (as part of a brick) I spent those doing hard Z2/4 intervals. Just because hills weren't enough, I also needed to test my cardiac arrest threshold I guess.
There isn't much else I can say - the rides with Neo are not very surprising in general, aside from the here-and-there squeak and skip. Neo has now a new cog (12-27) and a new chain, so it rides nice and smooth. No flats, no major concerns, but it could use a tune-up. I will make sure to do this before the next triathlon season. Until then, fingers crossed, it won't throw me in a ditch (or vice versa).
Be happy, ride hills!
