Weekend riding

I had a marvelous 50-mile ride yesterday and got badly sunburnt. It takes a while to remember that warm weather means my limbs are no longer covered, which means I must apply sunscreen. But I had a great ride, over a very hilly route — in fact I did a lap of a course I will race on in June, the dreaded (by me) Housatonic Hills race. Every time I climb those hills I think about how awful it is to race over them and I wonder why I do it. But I wouldn’t want to miss the race either …

Today I did an easy hour, and could feel every hill I climbed yesterday in my legs. Now I’m headed into a recovery week, as I’ve worked pretty hard the last three weeks and need a break. I hope to be all recovered by Sunday, when I’ll be doing my Massachusetts road race — 40 miles! Ouch.
