Zero to 60 in just under five hours
So it's another Leadville training milestone. My prescribed long ride today was for 4:45, and without going over I was able to go 60.9 miles on all gravel trail. In fact, my coaches exact words were "Ride EASY, keeping everything zone 3 or lighter if possible." Looks like I was able to make that happen quite well.
Not only was it further than I've gone before, but it was also faster than my last two long rides at the same location. It was definitely near perfect temperatures and a beautiful day. I really couldn't have asked for more from myself.
