After being awakened at 3:30 AM Wednesday morning, pushing at near-full intensity through a midday spinning class yesterday, and feeling like a zombie the rest of the day (despite sleeping most of the evening hours on the couch), I wasn't expecting much from this morning -- I would've been satisfied with anything north of an 18 mph average -- so to be at 19.3 mph more than halfway in, with the worst of the elevation behind me, and pushing to 19.6 mph by the 20-mile mark before backing it down (with the help of nine 90-degree turns in the final four-ish miles) to save something for my personal trainer to wring out of me later today, felt like a major accomplishment.
(Wow, that was one LONG sentence!)
