Grand Ridge RT-Duthie-Soaring Eagle: "Go harder" strategy worked today. On Monday's ride, I surprisingly picked up a Strava #2 while not going super hard. I used KOM chasing as motivation to ride the long segment harder today. I felt like I was able to ride quite a bit quicker than Monday, and lowered my time enough to pick up the KOM by a few nanoseconds, at least for now! Temps in the 60's and fantastic trail conditions made for spectacular riding. Despite the difficulty and length of the ride (as well as Monday's), the legs felt pretty darn good for this time of the year.

Grand Ridge RT-Duthie: Season Skipping, Streak Stopping Perfect Day. February yielded 23 days with measurable precipitation at our Issaquah house totaling 8.59", including the last 14 days in a row. There is a chance of an overnight shower, but not until 4 AM or so. The streak is over! Today's 60 degrees, sun, and perfect trail conditions made it feel like we skipped spring and went straight to early summer. Also end of a streak of not riding the RR since 2-12.

Wildwood-Sunset-DT with Tracy: Good self talk is important. It wasn't easy, but I convinced myself not to ride yet again this week. Five rides with 13.5+ hours in the saddle made a rest day a good idea. Three hard mountain bike rides of nearly four hours each made for a great riding week.

Grand Ridge RT-Duthie-Soaring Eagle: Exorcising broken collarbone demons. I broke my collarbone last March 16th, riding over a section of tree roots at Soaring Eagle that I had ridden a thousand times. The how is easy: I fell and landed with a lot of force on my shoulder. The why still perplexes me. I rode over the roots today for the first time since I fell. I've ridden the trail 50+ times since then, always taking the easy way around the roots at the edge of the trail. It's still a spot that I could ride in my sleep, and that explains why I broke my collarbone. I had it on autopilot. The lesson learned is that one can never have it on autopilot when riding a mountain bike, no matter the trail, or how experienced the rider is.
