Head down and hammer

Since I'm going out of town this Wednesday afternoon. I'm going to try and ride 3 days in a row. 15-25-20. Today's ride was a pretty fast 15 mile loop, and I clocked the 11 mile mark time vs distance to emulate a sprint, also focusing on staying in aero as much as possible the entire time(i would say I only sat up less than a mile combined) I hit my 11 mile mark 31:06 I think that was pretty good. My legs felt pretty fresh,and I was sporting some knickers and an undershirt for warmth, but I felt I was turning over pretty well. Thoughts on that time? Fyi- I don't think I drank enough water less than 1/2 bottle.
So tomorrow will be long 25 miles and just steady. Then Wednesday will be a 20 in small ring only. Thoughts on this plan ?


  1. 11 miles/31:06 is 21.22 MPH, not bad at all.

  2. For drinking, I try to take a couple of sips every 15 minutes, both running and cycling. Seems to work for me in terms of getting it in and not too much at a time.
