Legs are fried…but the health feels good…hoping the drastic increase doesn't equate to getting sick. I am away on travel so trying to make sure i get plenty of sleep…trying to figure out how to taper for this weekends race now.

Leg day this morning. Curls, extensions, calves, squats and press. I took the elevator to get to my floor at work.

Sounds like you're lucky not to be using a wheelchair.

We have used everything. My favorite is BSN Syntha 6 Strawberry, but it is more of a meal replacement and has a little higher carb and fat content but is soooooooooooo delicious.
Gaspari also makes a good one.

My choice for protein powder. I like the 'blend' that has hydrolyzed whey/whey isolate/micellar casein (1:1:1): https://www.musclefeast.com/

There are other things you can do. Have boiled eggs around to snack on. Eat some beef jerky (quite a bit more expensive that protein powder + a lot of salt). Plain greek yogurt and cottage cheese are also good protein sources with very little sugar. You don't have to stuff yourself on powders....but they are convenient.

This sport is not important enough for me to eat stuff daily that isn't food (other than Oreos).

I've got a date with a kettlebell later today. I'll be hurting tomorrow. Hell, I'm a little sore right now.

I've taken ON Whey while lifting and it has the best flavors and mixes well. Can't say much about the content of the product but it seems a lot more trustworthy than the rest!

Ride #5 50 miles, 5000 ft. A little painful, but I slept 4 hours the night before and then spent the morning at the lake getting sunburned.

Very true. For me it just isn't possible to make my protein goals on food alone I must supplement with protein powder (6 scoops a day).

First long ride Saturday since getting the cast off, did 68 miles at a pretty fast pace, racked up 266 TSS points and spent 40 mins at threshold

Took Sunday off

I will get my legs back before the season ends dammit!

You race or watch?

See my boy up there in qualifier finals? So proud of him.
And our other in the amateur finals?
Great weekend.

When you fart does it look like someone just squeezed a bottle of talcum powder?
