My legs felt a little heavy after yesterday’s six hour training ride. It took some time to warm up. I was quite hungry on today’s ride and pulled over a couple of times to get some solid foods in me.
The training goals and actuals are almost exactly what they were yesterday so I won’t load any additional graphs.
One awesome thing that happen today was running into Isabelle Drake. I was experiencing a lull in my ride, just south of San Clemente, when up ahead I saw a Furnace Creek 508 vest. I wondered who that might be. As I got closer I recognized Isabelle. The timing was perfect. I snapped out of it and started riding better. She has a knack for that! At the 2009 Furnace Creek 508 the winds were gusting up to 60 mph and we motivated each other to keep riding as we played leap-frog through Death Valley. Thank you Isabelle you did it again you got me through a rough patch. When I post my Death Valley Double Race Report this is the Isabelle that I will talk about.
