I've reached the last week of my Base 1 training period. The last week, of course, is a "recovery week", which means less intensity and less riding. It's nice to know that I only have to ride for an hour today before heading home.

And that's good, because the forecast calls for scattered thunderstorms off and on all week, and they've been hitting with less and less warning. One minute you're cruising in the sun, the next you're being drenched by a torrential downpour.

By the way, does anyone ever use the word "torrential" in any other context than to describe rain?
