Well, I'm there. I'm in that tired but it feels good place. I found that I was pushing myself up too far on my heart rate by looking at my monitor's settings (duh). I dropped it down a bit and didn't feel like I was trying to murder myself by going almost flat out. I also broke out the spandex. I've got a set of bibs that are so great for riding but I wasn't thinking about using them inside but my butt feels much better. I know that's TMI, sorry. I think my saddle is just barely too thin so my butt bones aren't on it perfectly but if I wear my bibs with their chamois it makes it feel fine. Maybe it's just like my grandma used to say and I've got a bone-y butt and need that extra padding.
