A slow week for riding

This was a slow week for riding.  I was tired from the week before because I didn't let my body rest after my Thanksgiving weekend 170 miles.  I skipped riding on Monday, did the normal Tuesday morning ride and then went for a night mountain bike ride on Wednesday.  It'd been a long time since I was last on the trail in the dark and I'd forgotten how much fun it is.  I took Thursday and Friday off, and then picked back up on Saturday.  I was supposed to do 70 miles today but I was time-limited and had to settle for 2 hours of speed work:  high-heart rate sprints and hill climbs interspersed with slow easy spinning.  It's a tough workout.  I'm feeling rested, though, and ready to get back to my normal riding schedule next week.
