This week started off like hell, I was suffering badly. So badly that I was wondering if I even wanted to do this to myself again. Fortunately just as I predicted I found my groove. Somewhere out there was that rhythm and it took about five days to find it. That constant whirrrrrr of the drivetrain that I want to hear was not present early in the week. More like a vooop vooop vooop. Sloppy pedaling sucks the life out of you , makes you slow and is inefficient. Who wants to work hard to go slow? Not me sir...Leave that for the others..
