Just looking at the HR data for that ride & on the headwind bit where I was doing all the donkey work, I was sat at 165 avg for 30 mins, so the blow-up on the last climb was a foregone conclusion really! Oh well, you live & don't learn Sat 20/4
By afternoon I felt well enough to go out for an easy loop but after 3hrs I was pretty fed up. On the climbs the HR was way up for little perceived effort. Missed out on a PB by one second (over 4 mins!).Sun 21/4
Club Run Basa Kabi via Goizueta. Plus Uitzi solo.
122km 1700m 4h32
Not a bad day out, I was pretty congested but didn't feel quite as rotten. Slow start with the guys, after the sign on we had a smaller group go on up to Basa Kabi, felt good enough to stretch the legs a bit up there, then after Leitza everyone headed for home. I decided to do a last climb, up to Uitzi, and got a PB at least even though the surface has been torn up by the machine that shaves the top layer off, and not yet replaced. It was pretty uncomfortable!
It's a loooong downhill from there, but the HW didn't let me have it so easy. As Saturday, faded in the last half hour and wished I hadn't added the last 20km. Caught a guy also suffering so we kept up a reasonable survival pace together.
