I HAVE A FRIEND. It's not you, I hope.
He's always asking me to do this hard ride or meet up with that fast group. I always say no.
He and I already pound it pretty hard on Tuesday at the TMWC.
On Saturdays, if we're not racing, we're usually full gas for at least an hour... often a lot more.
He can't get enough... keeps inviting me to rip these other rides on the other days of the week.
I think he's nuts. He thinks I'm weak.
He's always complaining that he's tired and his legs feel terrible. I always say... reeaaallly?
ON RELATED NOTE, the STRAVA Fitness & Form tool is pretty cool. I think it's a good indicator of how fresh I am. The Friday before NOSCO, my form was +13. Last Friday, before HUNKR-LA, my form was +9. Monday, after HUNKR-LA, for form was -18. Fool that I am, I rode TMWC at a good clip and pushed my form down to -28. Tomorrow, I'll paddle board surf in the morning and do some core work at night. Friday morning will be a very easy spin. I'm guessing my form will be back even or slightly positive come Saturday. I've learned I'm only good for 2 hard days a week. How hard those I make those days depends on where I am in the season.
So yeah, I love ya... but it's a No thanks.
