I'm Gonna be Sore Tomorrow!

Got out and hammered today. Did 39.5 miles in 2:10:39. Average speed 18.1 mph. Took about 15 minutes out of the other time I rode this route.

A more detailed report on the ride can be seen at my new blog. Check it out.

If I do ever race, it will probably have to be TT. My climbing style is closer to Jabba the Hutt than Marco Pantani. I'm not enough of a sprinter to do will in crits. That pretty much leaves TT. Which is ok, because I like riding solo against the clock.
