Met Dustin at Seward and road past Leschi with him so he could warm up for his hill repeats. We chatted for a while and some dude asked nicely if he could grab our wheels. I like it when folks ask, so polite! We let him sit on until Leschi.
Dustin went to do his repeats and I rode on to Madison. took a left up the hill to the light to Lake Washington Blvd and after the hairpins I ramped up my intensity and wanted to hold it until the bus stop turn around. Dustin and I passed each other at the intersection, gave a wave and then it was recovery time to Leschi. From the bridge to Seward I held 25 mph at 187 bpm and never felt uncomfortable so I think I’m getting over being sick. Back up at Seward I started doing the crit course laps and ran into a Hagens rider. We did 10 on/off interval laps before I had to call it a night, I was spent.
Back home it was Spincih salad, cottage cheese and yes, a pizza. :-)
Oh… 2 beers too.
I guess Dustin was tearing it up… It would have been great to ride with him today but I just couldn’t have done it. I would have slowed him down.
