So my intentions were great but this ride just didn't pan out well. Needless to say I got a good hour of riding but my mood was just not there. I had a long week and weekend waking early at 6am every morning, On saturday I joined john on a morning ride that had me on 5 hours of sleep and this one was going to put me on 4.5 hours of sleep after an already lack of sleep prior. I have been more motivated than ever to ride but I took it too far. I awoke 4:30 monday morning and made my way out of bed and was on the road by 5:00 and got a 5:15 start. The trails was slightly dark and creepy as usual, surprisingly moist since the ride from saturday. Started pedaling up Case and felt achy in the legs and not enthused about the hill ahead. I arrived at the summit at a very slow pace and wimped out on deciding to make a small loop. Which was a good loop and at the end of it I contemplated extending it but I decided the lack of sleep and energy would beat me down so to the car I went. Disappointed in my performance but still very happy I got out and rode, tomorrow is the day off I wonder where it will bring me.
Oh yea and by the way I pulled the trigger on these bad boys!
