One of the good things about the Tour de France ending today? I won’t be sitting at home watching the race in the mornings, and then going out for my rides during the hottest part of the day. I knew it was going to be a bad one when my heart rate hit 170+ on a relatively flat section, in the small ring, without a headwind … not that I’m not used to seeing high heart rates anyway, but that’s a really bad sign.

I just have to keep telling myself that even a bad day on the bike beats any day stuck in the office.
