That is what I said to myself Friday night, a bit confused when Heath said he did not want to do the alleycat Saturday so he would be fresh for a 6 hour mountain ride on Sunday. I decided to soldier on and did probably the hardest 10 miles on a bike I have ever done during the Bici Coop alleycat.
4th place, finished with a flat tire, had a good time. Only problem was the next day fatigue.
Now I know why he didn't want to race. My legs were completely useless Sunday. The first 20 miles were ok but I felt like I was going backwards after that and bailed on doing the last loop. This either means I suck, I suck at doing short efforts....or more likely, both of these. Lesson learned. If these were midweek I would be ok, but christ...that just ruined me. Meh.
Schleck killed it in the first biiiig Alps stage yesterday, nice to see him get a win.
