Our friend Peter made his triumphant return to our weekly Dawn Patrol ride through the Headlands. Brian and I made sure we made him suffer for being MIA for so long. It's good training for him as well as it is for us.
Our rides lately have become more and more intense. I think it's because it's just been Brian and myself pushing the pace. He's been getting faster and faster, which only inspires me to push harder and harder. We're definitely out of any base-mile phase of our respective training, with the race season in full-swing it's important for me to simulate race pace as often as possible.
