I rode on Friday. Feeling the need to get some miles in, but worried about the heat. It was stinking hot and I never got my groove on. I managed to stay barely hydrated but cut the ride short. 2 hrs instead of the 4 I wanted.
I still managed to have fun.
I'm not sure about "racing" ORAMM. I want to do the route, but don't want to suffer. That means that I should not do it, but I still want to..... I might wait until the day of to see what the temps are looking like, and see where my fitness is. If the race were tomorrow, I would bail for sure!
