I did a time trial up to the La Luz trailhead, and I set a new speed record for this year. I didn't feel like I was riding very fast, but I beat my previous fastest time by a minute and a half. That's huge. I rode at a steady pace, and didn't have any real slowdowns, where I was feeling severly fatigued. I thought I would break the twenty one minute mark, but I ended up breaking the twenty minute mark, with a time of 19:45. This gives me a morale boost as far as my training goes. I am thrilled.

After that climb I rode down to the bottom, and then did an out of the saddle climb, back up to the top. That climb felt a little bit easier than usual, and I can tell that my legs are getting stronger.

I decided to skip making a third climb, and headed back to the house after the second one.

It was a sunny day, with some strong breezes at times, and temps in the lower 70s.
