Oops, my finger got stuck to the "4" the key. Rode for 44:44 in class today; a recovery ride after an earnest effort yesterday. I am finding these recovery rides in class mentally harder than hard rides. On hard days, I focus on effort, on breathing, on form, on hydration, etc. On recovery days, I focus on the clock. I think I have a Uri Geller effect on the clock because when I watch it it slows down. Others are working and sweating while I feel bored and disconnected. It may be mentally easier to do recovery rides outdoors, but I've never been able to ride at recovery intensity outdoors. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can put up with the boredom twice a week.
