I went out in the afternoon to see if my training is translating into me getting any faster. I did a time trial up to the La Luz trailhead, and my time was 22:10, which is almost three minutes faster than my previous time. I am very pleased.

I made a second climb up to the trailhead, this time seeing how far I could go while standing up out of the saddle. I made it about halfway to the top, a little more than a mile, which was a little bit farther than the last time I tried. Progress!

I thought about doing a couple more little climbs, but then I decided that I that would be happy with my improvement so far, and come back another day to push the envelope.

It was a beautiful sunny day, and the warmest it's been in a while. It was in the low 50s, which was wonderful.
