Ramping Up

Monday's lunch ride started out pretty fast, and with Leadville just around the corner it's important for me to get in the right amount of intensity and recovery at the same time. I went into the ride fast, but dialed it back once we hit the climb on Willow. My legs have been feeling pretty good the last couple of weeks, and I'm hoping it's a sign that I'm peaking just in time for Leadville. I'll need any advantage I can get since I'll be going up the day before rather than acclimating to the staggering 10,200' elevation start.
