April was not good for training at all. i was gone for a week at spirit rock on a silent retreat. there’s plenty of good excuses that prevent me from logging more than a few hundred miles in april. still, last weekend i did 62 miles on a organized race and felt pretty good most of the time. the legs were watery the next day but some hot spa action helped quite a bit. this weekend, i am stepping it up a 100 mile tour of napa but it sounds like it may rain. guess i need to learn to ride in the rain either way! i am still nervous about the ride. i am hoping i can really pick up the training in may to 3-5 days a week and log over 500 miles! in order good news, i did achieve my 3K minimal requirement in order to ride! everything is gravy at this point!
