And on the flip side...

... there are nights like tonight.

When I'm on. Not just 'on,' but SO ON. Like BOLDER ON.

Nights when somehow my legs found a reserve of liquid gold in them and just chewed through 1-minute hill sets.

Nights when my new, glorious saddle let me maintain a smile long after I used to.

Nights when my toes didn't cramp in my shoes and my cadence didn't drop below 90, even in the hardest gear.

It's nights like this, Al, that remind me of how right you are.

There is always a flip side. And it's all worth it once you get there.

Thats what Im talkin bout! I like the on days!

I was on today also, must have been the sugar or something, but my ON entailed cleaning out the garage for Heavy Trash tomorrow..

Isn't it great? Especially when an "on" day follows an "off" one, which it often does. I often have a really crummy workout, followed by one so great I'm left wondering, "What just happened???"

Isn't it great that those "on" days seem to show up exactly when we need them most. When you need both a mental and physical boost? Sounds like the kind of day you totally deserved. Keep it up.
