If I think it’s going to be a while before I get to ride again, I’ve been trying to get out for just an hour or so and get a little workout ride in to try and build up a little stamina, or at least delay the arm pump. It’s nice to be able to ride straight from the garage and hit some local trails. If I ride it hard I can wear myself out pretty well too.
Anyway, here is a sample of one of my workout rides. It’s pretty rocky and there are a couple of steep loose climbs, but it’s pretty and the views of the valley are awesome from the tops of the ridges. I wore one of those calorie counting watches with the chest strap and it said I burned 900 Calories, I think that was pretty generous, but I did come back tired.
