Right now it is almost 3 in the afternoon here in Japan. Yesterday, I was totally exhausted and was a bum, did not touch my bike except when I went to see a dentist.
Today I trained hard. I climbed. I rode about 100 kilometers (somewhere between 65 to 70 miles) and climbed three passes, about 4,147 ft. It was hot and I wasn’t going on the flat road because my goal has been to be able to climb faster.
If you are interested, Japanese typical rural mountain passes look like this (if you are one of those road bikers who like climbing and want to climb Japanese mountain pass, please let me know. I’ll tell you good passes).
It is hot. Outside temperature read 40 degree C (103 degree F). Hope it will cool down a bit. I love summer better than freezing winter, though.
Here’s my Garmin data:
