One more time (trial)

So I took yesterday off of the bike with plans to hit it hard today with a time trail around Bonelli park. This is my everyday loop, a 7 mile rolling hills loop that I use as a fitness and strength test throughout the year. I probably should have had a ride in the day before such a hard effort, but I figured "F it"I could use the long intense effort regardless if it is a personal record or not. Without further suspense, my time to beat was 18:30 which I posted late July of last year. My last time out this season (about a month ago) I posted a 18:41. Well I did it, I beat another one of my personal bests, putting up a time of 18:14!! This is also after having to break on one of the turns due to the only spot where there is a light and traffic, and after slowing down just a tad for some construction work. So another record setting day!! I have noticed that since I busted my speed sensor at San Pedro my TT have been great. Not being a slave to how fast I'm riding and riding strictly on feel and H.R. NAP TIME!!

PEACE!!
