Went out today with the objective of keeping my heart rate under Zone 3. My typical ride is at the mid/upper Zone 4 range, so I thought I deserved and easy ride.
Let me tell you, that was one fun ride. No worries about average speed, just focused on keeping light pressure on the pedals and holding back. Not a single hill was hammered. Very relaxing and energizing. I should try this more often!
I don't fit slow rides into my routine often enough. Curious to know whether other regularly fit a "down" ride into their schedules?
