KOM Try and Recumbent Cruise – BionicOldGuy

Yesterday I used to be feeling my oats so determined to do a shot at my first KOM try since turning 70. I attempted a brief steep climb on West Important on my light-weight Sirrus upright. It was very disagreeable, going that onerous uphill causes me to enter extreme oxygen debt, and right this moment it additionally brought on a brief unhealthy headache. I feel that’s as a result of my sinuses had been already congested as a result of allergy season- the orchards are beginning to bloom in these components, which is gorgeous however sadly may also be allergy-inducing. So I made a decision to desert the try. Future KOM makes an attempt should be much less steep and longer. I like the sensation of a little bit of burn in my legs throughout onerous efforts, however most decidedly don’t just like the lung-searing feeling from steep climbs. Fortuitously, the headache cleared up after I switched again to cruise mode.

I then went residence and switched bikes to my recumbent, and went on a two-and-a-half-hour cruise to the Southeast alongside the foothills east of San Marin and Gilroy. I threw some intervals in on the best way again and felt positive afterward. I generally should catch myself and bear in mind my major motivation in driving, except for train for good well being, is the nice “meditation-in-motion” feeling. Aggressive targets like KOMs are OK for motivation, however not if it ruins the enjoyable of the trip.
