Just 99 miles to go

Monday, April 27, 2009


Concerning my last post.
When I said I had to do 4 laps at Rosaryville, did I specify that they had to be on the same day?
If you haven't guess yet I failed to meet my goal. Only got in 3 laps and it almost killed me.
Do I give out the excuses now or save them till the end of the post?
Ok lets get them outta the way.
1. The weather. It was hot. It was really hot. We're talking records being broken. 92 in April.
What the hells the deal with that?
2. I had riding partners. Chris from last summers training rides joined me for all 3 laps and doc was there for the last 2. Ok this is kinda lame but work with me people, I'm trying to make myself feel better. I pushed the pace faster than I would have if I was by myself. Maybe it'll actually work out better in the long wrong for the fitness. Higher pace for less duration?

So, I've got 1 more week to get my 4 laps in.
Next weekend is up in the air. I might be doing the race at Lodi, I might not.
I haven't heard back from the other half of my duo team.

I need to concentrate spinning more. Everybody who comes out with me remark on how I ride like a singlespeeder. Always standing up instead of downshifting.
What can say.
It hurts to try to move my legs that fast.

SM100- 13? days.
Damn I feel unprepared.
