Hard Climb 3 Days: Check!
Three days of steepness, and I've kicked the gearing up a notch to 24x26. (I think?) I can feel my legs getting stronger. I can keep my cadence up much more consistently.
Ride 3+ Hours: Check!
Final tally: 5:25 . I got to ride every day last week, so the time & miles stacked up easily.
Drop a pound: Check!
- Last week's weight: 184.8#
- This week's weight: 181.6#
I honestly have no clue why my weight loss has resumed. I think I just backed off on the cookies a bit, and got more protein at breakfast.
So generally, things are going well. The new chain & chainrings have arrived, so I'll mount those this week. I've been hesitant about standing on the big ring-- if I push hard enough, it skips. If it skips while I'm standing, I'll probably get dumped over the bars. Uff.
Next week's checklist is the same as this week:
- Hard climb 3 days
- Ride 3+ hours
- Drop a pound
