Please... less than 10 posts in and you're apologizing. Is that the tone you wish this new thread to have? Timidity?

Somehow, beyond my understanding, I get the impression that something is, perhaps, inappropriate. So, yes, if I get that impression, I do apologize...I thought of it as being more polite than being timid...

Not good enough.

We will require even more groveling to absolve you.

MAP is up almost 40 watts since november.

Riding tomorrow morning, aiming for 60 miles with 3x20 thrown in.

Then for spring fling, aka a day of total debauchery. Oh college...

I had a pizza today before I went out for a sprint workout. Just another reminder of my painfully bad sprint. I'll stick to the hilly races this year.
