Was a bit tired from traveling to Atlanta and decided to take some time to do a fast coast ride. My stretch goal was to break 3:45 and hit 16 MPH for the ride. I started off pretty fast hitting the right on Arastradero in 18 minutes. I hit the base of OLH in 38 minutes which surprised me as it was much quicker than normal. I tried to keep the heart rate around 165 for OLH and summited in about 23 minutes at 1:01 total time. It was windy on the descent of 84 and I had to battle hard to break 1:40 at the San Gregorio store, but I did manage to do it. I only hit 33 MPH on the descent of Hwy 1 due to wind. I hit 2 hours after Lobitos Cut-Off and pushed moderately hard up the steep pitches of Tunitas Creek. I road hard at the top when the road flattens out and topped out in 2:40 or so. The descent of Kings was uneventful and I managed to break 3 hours to Roberts market. Now it was an all out ride to see how fast I could do it. Painful windy pulls one after another went by and I finished in 3:31 and averaged 16.4 MPH for 5000 feet of climbing. By far a record for me. Was one of those days on the bike when everything felt good. I must be peaking too early for DMD as I wish the damn ride was tomorrow. 4 weeks to go.
I think I feel like dancing now....!
