Uh oh.

2006-06-20 22:32:46.870285+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

What with all of the projects (1, 2) going on around here, I haven't been out biking as much as I'd like.

A few days ago I met Charlene in Fairfax, managed to average 20.8 MPH there, and so thought I was doing okay. This morning I rode the Pine Mountain Loop with the Marin Cyclists and... normally I'm able to hold my own. Not lead, but not be embarassingly behind the leaders. This morning I was slow. Not the slowest, but one person whom I normally outclimb was breathing down my neck. Saturday's Tollhouse Century could hurt a lot if Rob's in better shape than I am. And it's been just about a year since we've ridden together and I've no idea where he is relative to that.

So: Being able to sprint the 7 miles into Fairfax is not indicative of my continued ability to do sustained climbs.
