How'd it go?
I know it's not a tough trail, but convience, and the fact I'm just starting to increase my mileage, I did 1 Blue and 2 Yellow loops at ILRA. I tried breathing deeper, more controlled, and did'nt stop. I took a couple days off and went back for 2 Blue and 1 Yellow - no stops. My average mph for this ride was 13.5, it was around 23.5 miles. Recently went out to Highland and did ABCD - no stops, never have done that. The breathing has helped, as has starting out slow. I seem to hit a "zone" where I'm feeling like I can go for miles. There really is something to the miles in terms of the "fatigue" I feel after a longer ride, it is helping. I'm going to continue mixing the harder trails with rides at ILRA for a bit and see how I progress. Thanks for your intrest.
