Six Hour Training Ride – Newport Beach to Hwy 39

On Saturday February 26, 2011 I did a Double Century.  On Tuesday, March 1 a 30 mile club ride.  Today a Zone 2 Endurance Miles, 6 hrs pedal time 108 miles,  3,500 kjs Normalized Power of 180 watts. The club ride really hurt I wasn’t recovered yet! But I wouldn’t let myself get dropped no matter how much I hurt. My legs felt surprisingly good consider the abuse they took on Saturday’s double century.
