...discovering that Hollywood hill is no longer long or hard enough for my 10 minute efforts.
...finding out that the base road work we've been working on for the past six months is on track and now I get to work on that snap and pop in the legs and sustaining a massive power output for 15 seconds.
...out of the saddle climbing is stronger than ever - and I'm utilizing the strength in my newly found shelf butt and steady core. Those swimmer exercises, though a pain in the hiney, pay off!!!
...I can get my heart rate up! And finding my zones is easier now than ever thanks to keeping it in check in racing.
...realizing that I'm living in the moment, enjoying this process of kicking ass and being in the best shape of my life.
