You know it’s going to be a rough day on the bike when your standing heart rate is 125 before you even turn over a pedal … and even more so when you’re seeing 160 on flat ground in the small ring with a tailwind. Even so, I pushed through and got a halfway decent ride in. Nothing special, just another Sheffield Loop; but a ride is a ride, and that’s good enough for me right now.
