SYNCHRONIZED SPRINTING FOR THE BURRITO
MY PLAN WAS TO MAKE THE RIDE HARD. When I found the Gambler and the Hulk loading up on caffeine at the corner bakery ...
... my little heart skipped a beat.
Then 1 X Beard, Captain Smith, along with the regulars and some cat named Nico pulled up.
This was gonna give me a real read on my new favorite segment.
... how fast can we do it?
Like the young buck I'm not, I started firing. At Jeffery and Alton, The Hulk hit it so hard, only 1 X Beard and I latched on, trying to get through the next light about a half mile away...
... so began the synchronized sprinting.
We barely missed it.
Over the freeway,
through the first round about,
1 X Beard, Hulk and I were swinging.
Up a little hill,
through the second, faster roundabout.
The three of us are gone again.
Charging to make every light we can,
pulling through hard...
... I gotta skip a pull.
These guys are a little bigger, and I hung on over the freeway which felt like an alp.
The Gambler and Nico catch.
The next climb up Tesla...
... my batteries are shot.
Hulk, 1 x Beard
on my wheel.
It hurts so flipping bad.
What should be a 2.3 minute power climb,
ends up being a too dang close to 3 minutes.
We catch Nico.
Somehow, the idiot who wanted to make the ride hard,
the fool who thought he was a young buck,
pulled to the next short climb.
All 3 of us out of the saddle.
One of us off the back.
There's a shortcut.
I scoff and chase onward.
On Church Hill
i can see 'em.
Then I see the shortcutters.
All together over the top for the long, long drop to the coast.
Captain Smith waits,
We pedal like hell.
There are lights coming up.
But, we are making the lights too...
... at the last light before the 4ish miles to Laguna, we catch.
We're in the mid-30s, rotating strong.
This is just what I had hoped for.
Captain Smith and I head South,
they head North.
Only 3 miles and 1000' to go...
... For The Burrito!
It took us 1:07.
Can we break an hour?
First person who does, the burrito is on me.
6.8 hrs terrible tossing and turning, too excited?
Just PushUps and PullUps and a few Squats today.
20 minutes recovery
60 minutes reading + Journaling
