You ever have one of those days at work where your "to do" list gets out of control? Today was one of those days for me....I kept telling myself I would hit one more thing on that darn list and before I knew it, it was 2:30pm....I thought about hitting the gym at that point but a little late in the day and still had some work to do.....my point being- step away and take some time for yourself! I should have just hit lunch / gym at 12'ish like I had planned...the work was definitely not going anywhere.....reminded me of last year where I focused so much on work that the missed workouts spun out of control and gained so much momentum that I couldn't stop it.....next thing I know, I was pulling out of IM AZ & IM Canada.....not going to happen this year! I missed the workout window today but will make sure that it's an anomaly rather then the standard, going forward.
I did hop on the computrainer, post work for a short ride. Decided I'd do some hill work for a change of pace and fired up the IMC Richter Pass course and rode it to the peak and then spun down the backside for a 5 min cooldown......good times...
45 minutes total: 5 min warm-up / 36 minutes course / 5 min cooldown
6.88 miles (to top of Richter)
83 rpm cadence
135 HR ave (Z1- was in Z2 for the 2nd 8.6% roller)
