Wednesday I did a quick 32 mile loop and 2300 feet of climbing. I've been trying to focus not riding in zone 4/5, since I tend to do shorter rides at max effort. I stayed most of the time in zone 3 and did well not blowing up. I heard zone 2 training helps, but if I rode any slower I don't think I'd get anywhere. Anyways, I definitely felt like I had more in the tank towards the end of the ride. I guess now that I'm getting older, I need to ride smarter!

22 miles for gravel bike Monday! I took the gravel bike to meet up some non-cycling friends over at Griffith Observatory and grab lunch. After eating though I did another round up the park. Also despite being a bit slower on the gravel bike to climb road sections, bombing the rough downhill fire roads is just much more fun. I can just plow through the loose gravel and dirt with no worries.
