yes. Yes. YES!
The weather forecast magically cleared up and Saturday looks to be perfect riding conditions. It will be the first real ride on my new TT bike so do I be safe and conservative with a 60km ride? 100km ride? I normally do not advertise a specific kilometer number ahead of time but in this case - screw it, lets go the full 100 Miles (160km). I got the route picked out, now I just have to get the bike off the trainer and make sure all the bolts are tight and I have to figure out what to wear and eat and drink and I seemed to have forgotten how to ride outdoors as it has been so long!
I'm confident that my neck will hurt, shoulders will be sore and I will be cursing the aero position long before the halfway point of the ride but its crunch time, literally. Time to learn the aero position. Riding aero indoors on the trainer is nothing like open road. I haven't been fooling myself, I know its not the same. Next week I begin strength training for the aero position, I really should have started this earlier but oh well. Instead of swapping my training tires, I'm going to go out on my race wheels. Its not windy out and I want to watch them spin. I gotta get my moneys worth here!
Originally I was going to swim too, but I figure I would give my calf a chance to heal. I already put an extra swim in earlier in the week so it trades off just fine. It would have just been garbage miles anyways since I would be nursing my injury.
