I am just starting to break through the 16mph barrier.
For me, it is kind of like the sound barrier.
It has taken a couple month of hard riding to break through.
Today my average speed was 17.6 mph... That is average.
The problem is...my race is 8 days away and I am done with the hammering workouts.
While that might be true it still takes courage to even participate in that kind of event and the fact that you finished and in mid pack says a lot. I would not even consider doing an event like that. Fear of not finsihing would probably keep me from doing it to begin with.Got a few more pics from my race:
After the race. The lonely feeling of being slow...
