It was by far the worst Metric Century I’ve had of the three I’ve done in the last three years, even though my moving numbers were fine.
My training–for cycling, anyway–was not.
A week and a half after falling and injuring my right knee, worrying about some family issues and needing to meet friends to fix my truck, I decided after fighting with the wind for the first half of the event to turn around and do only 31 miles rather than the full metric. In truth, my distance traveled was a bit more than 31, and I could have done the full ride if I had known that fixing the truck wouldn’t take all that long at all.
Despite a long rest stop, I did reasonably well, averaging over 15 mph while moving.
And now, I must train even more for cycling.
