Going In the Red

I went into the red for most of Sunday's ride to the Palisades this morning, meaning I pushed myself hard for almost the entire time. I left at 8 am and made the 54 mile out-and-back in less than 3 hours, averaging 19 mph. I wanted to try my best effort on Gran Fondo New York's Strava challenge, but had to be back at home by 11 am. It feels good to hammer it out on a tough ride and feel like you have good legs throughout.
