    Great weekend.
    Watched. Got back to my hotel at 3AM. Started the day at 4PM. Serious training.

    Novo Nordisk was parked right next to us. We kept trying to get their devo guys to drink beer while they were warming up.

    Not sure what your new kit looks like. Got some pics I need to post up.

    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.
    It is sorta hard for me to get all real food for protein, and I do really like protein bars and protein shakes <3! I could literally live off of bread and protein bars..and a few other things that I can't think of. I had a protein bar last week that had 32g of protein! It was dark and tasty in an odd way

    Protein bars are generally a really bad way to get protein for a couple reasons. First, they're expensive. Second, they're usually loaded with sugar. Third, the proteins that are used in them are generally very cheap. Yes, they taste good. So does a Snickers. Just don't expect it to be 'healthy'.

    32 grams of protein is no big deal. A can of tuna generally runs around 25 gram and a chicken breast can easily run over 50 grams (depending on size). Don't discount 'real' food. I think there's a place for the powders and such, but the vast majority of my calories comes from food.

    This happened. Afterwards I got on the rollers for 30 minutes at a pretty subdued pace. I'm in about the same shape as shovel was earlier.

    protein powder for me is for instant protein after a workout to aid in a recovery. i don't need to add more protein or basically anything through supplements than what i get through my diet (italian family, steak (protein) and pasta (carbs) are my dinner every night, except for the occasional chicken breast).

    I've been eating fairly light to keep my weight down for some climbing I'm planning in a few months. I still watch what I eat even though I'm riding about 10hrs a week. Having a pretty hard time maintaining 170lbs. Gonna add some post-workout whey and keep everything else constant.

    Had some salmon last night with the gf

    Coming from CA, it's always weird to hear about people "planning for some climbing".

    I wish I had more hills where I'm at but there's enough here to keep me interested. Nothing like what I'm used to but it'll hold me over, for now.

    A buddy lived in SF a few years ago and I went to ride Mt. Tam with him...was pretty legit. At that time I was doing a lot of climbing(15k+ weeks) so I was able to actually enjoy the ride and not suffer too hard. Lately my climbing has been way down and its mostly steep short climbs.

    Just beyond Mt. Diablo from you it is flat as a pancake. I've done 60 mile rides with 100 feet of elevation, and those are just from getting up on the levee road.

    and east of that we have the foothills leading to the Sierras, which are real mountains by anyone's standards.

    How boring is that? I have been having a tough time finding flat routes for my Z1 type rides let alone that little climbing over 60 miles.

    Ha! I didn't mean shape as in fitness or strength. I meant I was having trouble walking. One thing about strength day, you don't sit around wondering, "Did I already have a workout?" You _know_ it...and the day after.

    I had to take a break from the gym as my back started acting up. I start up again next week. I love strength work, on the bike or in the gym.

    I guess I should clarify: coming from the coastal region of CA. I try not to take it for granted. Going to road races out in the middle of no-where central CA helps accomplish that.

    I've been known to enjoy a weight session every now and then...

    "I felt like I was going to squirt my colon out while watching you in that set" is still the funniest gym line I have heard yet...

    Doing it all on 100 grams of carbs or less hurts me bad though...

    I don't powerlift in the gym. I do multiple set, high reps, manageable weight mixed with exercises. On the bike, I do a lot of low cadence failure work.

    I am especially good at failure work on the bike! Hmm, perhaps that does not mean what I think it means

    Coach called for 2x20 at 100% FTP today. Two of the toughest climbs in the Catskills happen to be about 20 minutes each, and right next to each other, so to keep things interesting I did the climbs for my 2x20s.

    It seems like excellent training to pace yourself up a 12% hill at FTP for 20 minutes. It feels like you are going impossibly slowly at first.
