    Giro Recovery

    Tracy organized a recovery ride from yesterday's Giro ride. It was Tiffanie, VMC, Tprevost, and spingineer. Some pics (I'm the one taking pics, so no pics of me).

    Tiffanie in yet another fantastic pose

    On the Giro... bad day... there were some teensy steep rollers at the beginning and when those were trouble, I knew it was gonna be a long day So, we ended up doing the two major climbs and then turning back instead of doing the extra loop... I think it was like 70 miles and 6300 feet of climbing... but I just couldn't get it together I felt entirely different today though... even though my legs were trashed, I felt good... gotta wonder!

    70 and 6300 is still pretty damn tough...

    I had a really bad day though I was rested and should have felt okay but had nothing.... frustrating! Like I said, today's ride was great... even though my legs were toasted, I was still able to stand on some hills and keep a relatively decent pace... wish I could switch the days!

    you are so great to ride with! I was really happy you decided to ditch those "other people" and ride with us instead!
