rode to HB to meet Lendog and Greg W. they were riding with a group. When I saw then there was 2 big groups I am talking a total of maybe 50 people and they were moving at a strong pace against the wind. I got lucky and caught them at a light. The group would take off so fast after every light. We regrouped at bathrooms and then headed to CDM. there pretty much all of them headed back. I went to Laguna with Greg W and I showed him the NC climb up Vista Ridge to the park and then also the Pelican Hill loop. He headed back to LB. I did 3 repeats. I ran out of fuel and was feeling the heat. I stopped at A's Restaurant and Market on the way home.
I thought I rode pretty good, It was really hot. I think I am going to switch helmets and hopefully that will help with the heat. Also I think I am going to have to take in more calories on these longer rides. I am still doing them fasted as well. I felt much better on the way home after I ate at the restaurant so part of my problem maybe calories. But I am losing the weight so I may just stick to it.
I did have a bunch of PR todays even though I caught at least one light every time I went up NC. So very happy with that as I was never really going that hard. I did run into Tom Stepp and I talked to him up the climb I am pretty sure that was my PR as he made me work harder. He won the overall Aquabike at Santa Barbara last week.
