Never really got into the groove for today’s ride. Legs were tired from a weekend of incredible skiing. Backcountry laps on Tumalo Mountain on Saturday in knee high + untouched powder and a day of downhill on Mount Bachelor on Sunday.
Nevertheless, a big push up a nemesis of a hill did earn me this:
It probably won’t last, and I thought I was definitely going to vomit at the top, but it was a high point on a chilly, damp, tired kinda day.
Otherwise known as: today’s morning training ride. I didn’t actually start until 6:40 AM, which was later than planned because I spent 15 minutes laying on the couch trying to decide if it was smart to go biking while recovering from a cold. I looked at the internet hoping smart people would tell me, “Of course not, biking while sick is a terrible idea!”. But really all I found were articles saying that as long as it’s not “in your chest” you’re fine to exercise. Screw you internet people.
