Opened my big mouth and jumped on doing a MTB TT this Sat. Then I saw that the 34 mile option was being ridden in around 4 hours by the fast guys. Luckily there's a 17 mile option.
Sooo today I dusted off my MTB and hit the local trail 'Stinky'. My ass was handed to me and then brutalized. Loved it. 1:15 or so. 3mph is too high a cutoff of auto pause on the Garmin though. Fell off on one segment three times with the bike flying over my head backwards. Slippery and not used to the gears yet.
Nice change of pace. It feels good to get a little burn in.
