    2hrs of endurance with 40min of tempo thrown in at the end...

    Legs are hurting... Do not like the cooler temps!

    Mostly z1 ride with 11' and 5' threshold efforts in the middle. 2:30 total time.

    ZCI™s. Went better today. Work intervals were at 3.48W/kg. Maybe the set on Monday was just blowing the cobwebs out, as these felt great, 25W higher.

    2 hours after work, did some 10" on 10" offs, then 30" on 30" off.

    Sucks doing it without a PT but HR (and pain for that matter) is at least something to go off of. They were kinda fun.

    I was there the year that the current winner of the Vuelta won the SFGP. On the last lap he flatted on the approach to the climb, got a neutral when'll from the moto, caught the lead group, attacked, soloed to the Ferry Building for the win, and kept going, thinking he had another lap to go.

    It was awesome.

    that sounds vid worthy!

    The steepest hill I ever rode was Fargo Street in LA, I literally fell over a dozen times because my front wheel would come off the ground...Hats off to these dudes even manning up to race on these courses!

    I rode around in San Fran only once and I was terribly out of shape, my friend tried to murder me that day.

    Oh ok, thought that was the current version...

    First time in San Fran was an eye opener with those grades. Parking must take some special skill. Wonder how many slip and rolls you get?
    It's kind of flat around here

    I was in San Fran last summer and parallel parked once on an incredibly steep hill. It was really fun. After I finished, I called my dad and thanked him for all those grueling parallel parking lessons when I was first learning to drive. They paid off.

    BTW, I had a Canadian office mate for 5 years... so I've watched all of Corner Gas. Show is funny as hell.

    Anyhoo, rain ride at tempo today. I'm not sure I deserve rain ride credit, as I had fenders. Roads were very wet/flooded in places, but not much rainfall.

    My sister lives in Dolores Heights on the aptly named Hill Street. It must be 20%. Insanely steep. I'm surprised they could pave it.

    Holy ****. This street is one of the gnarliest in the city to go up on a bike. It's a 23% average with a noticeable left-leaning camber to the street itself. When a bunch of us did our own version of the Seven Hells of SF ride, this street was especially awful.

    Yep. That's the one.

    614W to go 8.1 mph. That's awesome.

    Well this was interesting. been feeling like crap lately, have ridden 3x in 2 weeks, and just went out for an easy ride. Got to my hill and decided I felt OK so started to push it. Ended up with best CP18 of the year.

    During my younger years I took a friends brand new BMX bike down Vermont St and taco'ed the tire. First of many crashes.

    I miss SF, but then when I go to visit family I remember how cold it is and feel at tad better about living in the desert.
    judging from what you post on here it seems having a powermeter has caused you to focus on ewang numbers without much a focus on developing actual fitness.

    Back training after being out for 2 years with a torn peroneal tendon. The first ride back was slower than my first day on a roadie; I almost ebay'ed both my bike that day.

    Speed is coming back and I'm riding as much as my tendon allows me. Will probably race in the local TT next month (and probably not do very well).

    Ok, it's not that flat here

    60min of recovery tonight. Looks wet for tomorrow, thanks WR. The moisture's coming straight up from Texas and the Gulf Coast. It's so humid and blah out I had to turn on the AC. It's late September, the AC should not be on in Southern Ontario...

    Yeah, it's weird when it's so humid that 82 feels like an oven.
