This morning, I woke up to a text message from my good friend, Josh Woods, that said, "Hey man, what time you want to ride?" I sent him one back and soon had put on the spandex, packed a few things for the ride and was out on the road to meet up with him. My training plan called for a 40 mile long ride this week, but we just wanted to do a long ride. Since we were going for a pretty good distance, we weren't too concerned with our average speed. We just wanted to finish strong and build up our endurance. I started with arm warmers but soon took them off because it started to warm up rather quickly. It was AWESOME! We had so much fun exploring new territory and cranking by the miles. After a quick stop at a gas station to refill our water bottles, we headed for home. We ended up riding 54 miles which is my longest ride ever! Although we weren't trying to do anything crazy, we ended up averaging 17.2 mph which I think is respectable.
