Looking into my schedule I noticed something interesting. On the 25th of this month I am doing a slower speed (about 17 avg) century as part of a century training series that starts this week (doing 70 miles on Sunday). On Sunday I have a crit that is designated B+/A priority (basically the same crit that I went off the front last time). I think I have a good shot at placing top 10 in the crit if I try a few different tactics then last time (took 30th last time out of 50).
Now I know I can handle the milage and if I do recovery I think I can be ready for Sunday early morning (7am) crit. Of course I have never tried something like this before and am a little scared that I will be too tired the next day to race 100%. Has anyone ever tried something simular to this? I guess it would be simular to a stage race where a crit is after a long 70+ mile road race. Anything special to look for to prep for this... ?
Note 100 miles is not too much of a stretch. I did 85 miles of Wednesday and felt great the next morning.
Thanks as usual
