    Well i dragged my butt out of bed today to go riding at 0600 and man was it a mistake!

    I felt terrible the whole time and i constantly got dropped by my riding partner on the hills which is a bit unusual cause normally i'm the first one up!!

    anyway thats my grumble for the day!

    Ive tried to do this myself and i cant get my heart to beat as fast as usual... And my legs, like yoghurt or something... :( Much better do do active recovery in the morning and do some heavier riding in the evening!

    Don't you just hate those days! :mad:
    Fortunately, I'm at the stage of my life where I can easily call it a day if I'm not feeling up to it. I did a 90k ride on Sunday which took me 3 hrs. No pressure and nothing to prove.

    I'm on the bike at 5:15 (am, if you are wondering) and try to do a 2 hour ride, between 45-60km depending on route. In May I will probably start at 6:00 because then the season is over and done with.

    I start riding at 0600 after 12 hours on night shift which is a bit of a killer

    If i didn't have such a good looking training partner i'd do a lot less morning rides i think!

    how can you ride that early????

    When I wake up @ 6:30 AM Its barely 40 degrees (F) out yet. It must be location or something. The Temperature didn't get warm enough to ride untill 9:30 AM.

    Today I was useless.
    After 15k 3th time over the not so steep climb with only 42kù/u average I got dropped of the back, never had such a bad day this year. Maybe, probabely due to the fact that I didn't ride for the last 3 days(thir, fri sat) due to a crash on monday altough the wednesday race 45,1 km/u and 39out of 273 was ok.
