Longer Water

Today was another training day. After dropping the car off at Campus Honda, I set out on a ride. I was trying to make it a little longer and was hoping to make it to 2.5 hours in length. As I started out I was feeling a little cold, but my legs felt strong. Before I left home I had planned to ride Oldfield Road out to Keating, then back along West Saanich Road.

This route actually took a lot less time than I thought, so I had to extend my loop a little through downtown, then along the water. In the end, it wasn’t as long as I had hoped, but I felt strong the entire ride, and could have kept going.

I need to find some nice hills to train on I think. Hill repeats would be a good thing.
