"You Mean You Miss The Pain...?"


(Photo by Adam)

This morning was the first of the 2010 "Before work AF Canyon ride/races".

I spent almost an hour in the pain cave. Some days it sucks having fast friends.

Marky Mark and Grizzly do a nice job with their write ups.

I showed up prepared for a group ride until Tibble Fork where the attacks usually start. So I was slightly bummed when we rolled past the Fee Station (20 seconds into the ride) and Mark started going. I looked around in confusion. "Are we seriously going this hard this early?". I didn't know Mark and Elden had plans to post their TT effort today.

It took me a few minutes to get my head around the plan. There was no way out of it. Today's ride was going to be a nice long suffer fest. I found my place in the group, settled into a good pace, and went into to "Seth mode". There would be no talking for 54 minutes and 31 seconds.

I had missed that pain that only an AF ride can dish out. Good times with some good friends. I'll see you guys tomorrow. Same time, same place.

Wish I could have been there. Well maybe not, my legs are cooked from last nights biathlon. See you tomorrow at 7am.

2 days in a row sounds like a really bad idea. Good times today though. I am still feeling like I need a caffeine boost...even though I have had several today.

"I found my place in the group..."
