Weather: 68F and dew point about the same. No complaining allowed.
Welcome: YHC and Defib set off on an extra credit ride, launching at 0400. When complete, Defib peeled-off to get a brick run in. YHC transitioned to cycling-Q. At 0515, promptly greeted myself (after listening to Ripken’s latest excuses for not running), mentally clipped-off the 5 core principles and disclaimer, then off into the dark.
The Thang: As YHC is currently in official marathon training mode, the goal for today was an endurance / foundation effort ride. 170-Watts on the dial would be a success. So, first move was to hit the NBP standard loop and met Fireball while approaching Cattlemen headed north. Fireball and YHC caught-up a bit and then stuck together until the bell rang. YHC had to leave promptly after bagging 35-miles for the morning to grab the kiddos for the bus stop. We averaged about 170-Watts for the session, so success achieved.
It was fun,
