I just meant the next two weekends. Didn't mean the entire summer. I have a shorten version of the summer due to planning around nationals (Shortened meaning I have one month until I have to be in shape...)

Four hours, most of it with some teammates plus a few others. Yeah, I may have won a MTB race Saturday, but it really isn't the same world - I stank out loud today. Mostly tempo/endurance - the ride was allegedly "gentlemen's pace" but it felt like we were going pretty fast up some of those climbs. Still a few weeks to turn these heavy legs around. Racing with the big boys again on Wednesday.

Rode with a teammate and a local club I had never ridden with before to test out the asthma meds.
100 miles in 5 hours even. I think they are working. Time to see what happens in a crit next.

Saturday: 2hrs on trainer with 2x15 min sweet spot.
Sunday: 3hrs kill yourself ride. Set a PR on my local LT interval climb (Bear Mountain) of 19:05, which bests my previous PB by 45 seconds, set last September. Additionally, it was windy as all hell, so I think on a more favorable day I may be able to do it in 18:30.

'sides that, laying low. Rest week began today.

fatboy is a guy I used to ride with quite regularly where I used to live. Dude is super super strong. Over the last couple of years he gained a ton of weight but I hear he's not terrible.
He was a big guy(180lbs) and had the treshhold of 5 guys. I can't wait till he gets back in shape and I come back to ride with them.

Short interval day is my least favorite. And I have a cold. Do you guys do intense training when you're sick? I'm probably well enough to complete the workout but not well enough to be psyched about it.

Guess I'm going to try to get back on the bike again today. Hopefully the injury is healed. Probably isn't. Also picked up a cold last weekend. Still has me pretty much KO'd. Pretty sure my body hates me.

If it's in your head you can train some, but I wouldn't kill yourself. If it's in your chest don't even get on the bike.

I did do the workout, and completed it decently. After I finished the intervals the skies opened and I rode 45 minutes home in the cold rain.

I miss that hill. I used to ride up that on the commuter with panniers between classes, doing intervals, then flying the hell down it on 26" slicks. Total blast. Did a lot of MTB riding up on top too, but the descent is not nearly as fun on ummagumma knobbies -- but it's more exciting

Enjoy it!

I wouldn't recommend it. Although try it out in the road to see how you feel. I rode the last two weeks with a chest cold/sore throat including 2 races, the cold didn't seem to effect me at all on the bike though (no coughing or trouble breathing) although it did take a long time to heal, I still have a small cough from it.
