"AM to the PM"
Call to arms came early this morning as the buzzer went off at 5.30. Groggy, I put it together and made it out the door to put some miles in the bank. Tempo style. I am making the switch to AM rides (some days) because the park is now a true battleground as the neophytes are out in abundance riding carelessly and with little concern for the lives of other...in other words it is fucked after 5. You have to be on a full tilt pilgrimage to insanity to want to insert yourself in that melee. I may still ride Wednesday night in the park...7 laps in less than 2 hours feels good.
The park was full of tri-kids rolling and running. A few roadies. Although far better than at night, the park was still considerably filled. So much for peaceful meditative am rides like in the old days when I could count the number of people who rode AM in the park on my two hands.
Ride was good. It felt good to be done I should say. I am flat these days...not sure what that is about. Got nothing in my legs.
Off to work.
