Today's training was going to be a nice solid ride on the tri bike. Me and Piet Boom met up at my place for a nice up tempo 80k ride. A ferry to cross the river, then a 30k ride towards the bridge of Vianen, cross the bridge towards Nieuwegein and then do some laps on the cycling track Nedereindse berg. A small 2.6k track with a small ascent in the middle. It's not much, but enough to hurt the legs.
After my training day, I always try to make time to go for a ride with my girl. As we made a promise to each other at the beginning of her summer holiday to try and ride 3 times a week. So today was #NOEXCUSE for me. So, after a my recovery shake and a nice ice cold drink, we quickly went on our way together.
Almost every Sunday, on the schedule there's an endurance ride with my mates. Most of the times it's just me and the Brother Piet & Corne Boom, but occasionally some other friends join in. More riders equals more fun. Riding with a group can be great, but you always have to focus on your own training objective.
