Maybe the ride was OK precisely because neither of the Kevins, nor I, felt particularly frisky. A leisurely ride up Kings (35 minutes I think? Dim memories of when 25 minutes wouldn’t have been all that fast… very, very dim memories…). Just a bit of dampness on top, not much. You know it wasn’t too tough if I was able to hold conversations on the climbs.
Tomorrow morning I plan to ride quite a bit harder; I have an appointment for a blood pressure check at Kaiser, and when I ride hard, my post-ride blood pressure can be a fair amount lower. That’s the plan. We’ll check in on the reality tomorrow!
