I was chatting with @mstafford today about fitness, and I was reminded of a clip from the Joe Rogan podcast. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fbCcWyYthQ
And it got me thinking, I'm probably trying to ramp up the intensity of these rides too much. So today I kept things comfortable, and I had a great time! My power chart looks nice and steady; no painful slumps where I couldn't keep pace.
Cheers to getting addicted to fitness!
