As someone who wears glasses and thus needs contacts to sport fancy sunglasses I rode today with shades and no contacts. I found that since I could not see far ahead I powered over hills that I would normally see and get psyched out before even reaching them. I rode more consistent and less fearful of the hills. I am not a climber. This was the second time I rode with out my glasses and found that my lack of vision helps me focus on riding and not the pending hills....I was wondering if anyone else psyches themselves out when riding?
1 mile sprint in 2.37 not bawls out but steady push.
