    Intervals, Sort of

    Not that I'm training for anything, but I was on an empty MUP last night and have heard so much about intervals that I figuerd "What the heck". So I got onto the big ring, stood, and went as hard as I could for about a minute ot two, hitting around 25mph. Then cool down and do it again. I probably did this 8 or 10 times.

    There might be something to this. My legs hurt like hell today.

    Yep, that'll happen. I don't do as many intervals as I used to, but still incorporate them into my riding. I always get a buzz knowing that I can make a bicycle so 25+ MPH on my own power without any downhills.
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    When I see that the path that I ride is clear ahead, I would do my sprints or interval to see how much this old body can push the maximum. I would do it again and again whenever I get to an area clear of traffic and pedestrians. Clocked myself one time for 24.9 MPH and that is on a folding bicycle. What a feeling that is.
