Well…that was interesting…
That one gave me more than I was expecting. For me, a big part of this whole cycling thing is the mental game. With a stretch of about 35 minutes with no appreciable rest I needed to tell myself a few times to keep going (don’t quit).
Admittedly, the targets are not unreasonable by any means but being a little winded and realizing that there’s at least another 30+ minutes before relief was a bit of a challenge.
First time doing this one so maybe just a bad day for me but there you have it. That said, Im looking forward to doing it again…just not right away.
