After all, I managed to squeeze in a short ride today about one hour and forty minutes. The way I see it If you cannot ride as long as you want to, ride more intensely. So, today’s spin was a Fartlek ride which is more intense compared to a long low heart rate one.
Another thing that was running around my mind was the tire pressure dilemma. Low-pressure for more traction or high pressure for more rolling efficiency. As you’ve seen everything is a compromise.
Things to do before the next ride:
- Adjust saddle angle more nose up
- Lube chain
- Write down current bike setup
- Try to sit a bit further back in the saddle
