Random Notes to Self:
  • I would probably have notes if I had been able to closely follow Week 6 of my 10-week century training program, but I was relieved that my long-ride on Saturday (53 miles) was relatively comfortable.
"'Easy' means taking a leisurely ride, 'pace' means matching the speed you plan to maintain for the century, and 'brisk' means cycling faster than your century pace."
