    6 hrs on the mountain bike
    I'm sure when you were getting to the point of blowing nothing was obvious but making the pain stop...I don't know about you but after the fact I always look back at those moments and think 'why didn't I just keep going' but at the time there wasn't enough oxygen on the planet to make me take one more pedal stroke.

    maybe the last or one of the last long rides this year. 3.5 hours at 230W, with the last hour at 240W. Numbers that some of you could probably put out on recovery rides, but represents a good steady progress for me.

    i dont think 240 is recovery territory. i think 100 watts is a much more accurate recovery ride for moi

    Strikes are not much of a concern for me. My SPD-SLs are worn down enough now that I'm getting scrapes on my CF soles...

    vacation is over, and my tsb is -34 (or will be tomorrow when it calculates the tsb).

    It was great to just ride all day everyday with little intensity. My base is coming/is back, and soon ill start some more high z3/threshold work, before i get into vo2max and sprinty stuff. Racing is just around the corner!!!!!!

    12 hour team relay mtb race...just over 4 hrs for me. (this includes riding around, to and from the pits, etc.) Did 5 laps. Laps were 8+ mi...My first 4 laps were in the daylight and every single one was 40 minutes...very consistent which was cool. Last lap was in the dark (with lights). Not sure what my laptime was, we left before it was posted. Im guessing closer to 50 min.

    Most fun Ive ever had on a bike.

    And that's what it should be all about.

    I know you're moving next week and all, but if you decide to do the Tour de Felasco on your way out west, let me know and I'll see if I can score you a ticket. Metric century on the mountain bike with a chili stop in the middle.

    BTW -- A shade over 15 hours on the bike this week. I think I'll be ready for the 6 hours in the mud next weekend.

    5 hours on the trainer yesterday.

    3 hours today, then I got antsy so I stopped. Missus and Junior are returning home and I still need to get stuff done around the house (the only thing I could do yesterday after the ride was eat and read). I want to get the race permits basically done, I have to clear out the guest room (Missus's Mom is staying there for a few days and it's currently completely filled with bike/trainer/DVD/laptop/fan/etc).

    Of course they just called, they may stop for dinner and they're about 2 hours travel time away. If that's the case I may do another hour.

    You must be very strong mentally to ride that long on the trainer, I'd just go insane!

    16 hours this week. the most i have ever done. This caps off my base phase, and i'm looking forward to the Build phase. Real racing season is only 2 months away, and i may be doing training races ever sooner than that.

    nice.

    i hit a 16 hr week like a month ago. second time ever riding that much.

    over here i def. pissed off my left knee near the end of a 4.5 hrs group ride, slangin' that big ring up a 5% hill near the end. theres some micro tears in the tendons in there; i know the feeling. will take next week very easy (if not completely off) and proceed with caution from there.

    the main culprit? I think its two-fold:
    1) jumping into a long and intense training ride after 2 weeks of drinking and little to no riding, and
    2) being negligent with my stretching routine, which always begs for injury ime.

    They drove straight here to have dinner with me, so no extra ride.

    Here's the trick: force yourself to do longer rides on the trainer, like 90 minutes (watch a movie or a cycling DVD while riding). Then a 60 minute trainer session seems really short.

    My 5 hour rides usually involve 2 movies (3-4 hours) followed by inspiring cycling aka watching my own clips. I seem to time ordering those 8 hour Tour DVDs at the wrong time for a long trainer ride but those would be optimal. I have 2? 3? hours of my own clips so I usually run out of energy before I run out of clips. I had to stop on the 5 hour session because I was bonking and I ate everything I could find (disadvantage of not buying sweets, soda, juice, and having just 2 bars and 1 gel when I started). I was seriously thinking of drinking a beer because I wanted something other than water or milk (later I realized I could have made tea but I was bonking so I wasn't thinking straight).

    The 3 hour session I started getting into it about 2.5 hours in (legs were suffering for couple hours). Of course that's when I realized I really need to get other stuff done so I decided to stop at 3 hours. I went 6 minutes over 3 hours because I couldn't help riding for a bit more, and I was about to climb back on the bike when the Missus called and said they're pushing through to get home (5.5 hour drive).

    Now, other than being up because I'm hungry and Junior did a few cries (and then fell back asleep), I feel fine. Unfortunately I won't be able to push my training like this for a bit because of house guests and regular obligations. 2-3 hours in an evening might be possible though. I'll push like this until mid Feb (meaning 2-3 hour rides, not 5 hour rides) and then I really don't train hard for the rest of the year, just race.

    Shoot, I did 15:20 last week and that was just my "getting fit enough to begin base training" week..

    Saratoga, you'll be back at it in no time. Are you going to Deland? I'm seriously out of shape, but thinking of doing the 35+ A race on Sunday..
