Riding the mountain bike all the time, on both the roads and trails, makes you stupid strong. You'd almost forget about it if you didn't ride your road bike every once in a while like I did today.
I've been sticking pretty exclusively to putting the miles in on my mountain bike. Just about all my rides lately have included paved road, fire road, and single track. Since the road bike was collecting dust, and I needed an easier day anyway, I decided to take it for a 90 minute recovery ride to keep the legs moving, but ease the intensity a bit. Wow! what a difference skinny tires and a rigid fork make!
Anyway, that was all for today. Again I got caught up with some life stuff, but still managed to enjoy getting in a little bit of extra, 'active', rest. Tomorrow will be a 'play it by ear' day, but nothing too long as I have a lot of riding coming up this weekend with the stage race. I'll have to be careful not to burn any matches on the bike tomorrow, but still have fun nonetheless. It's not gonna be easy!
