Yesterday I took the ride of shame 40 miles into my 56 mile ride. Today I had an optional 30 minute swim workout. So to prove a point to myself, I did the optional workout on top of my planned 4 mile workout.
I love this stuff. It killed me to cut it short. I can only only recall two other times I called it quits doing a workout. First time, I planned a two loop workout from my house. I thought I’d do 10 miles, get more fluids and go.back out for another 10 miles. Somehow my.body decided I was home and didn’t want to go any further.
The second time, I had just begun rising my bike. For the first time, I took my cellphone with me. Eight miles into a 14 mile run, I got serious knee pain and could hardly walk. I had to call the wife and have her pick me up. Later I found out that my knee pain was from using too low of a cadence.
