Frustration!1!!!1! Last week I was finally going to re-start Build. The week before there was a mild gastrointestinal bug in the house, I thought I had ducked it. Turns out I did not, for the last week, I have had a mild case of gastroenteritis. Nothing too bad, but I have been staying off the bike, to try to prevent it from becoming a worse case of gastroenteritis.
My first crit is in two weeks, I need to get back on the bike and at least recover some fitness before I race dammit!
^Thanks for that list. I just purchased the first two, plus the classic "Flow” by Csikszentmihalyi.
Did some tempo work, my calf is killing me. I have a training crit on Thursday and a race on Saturday. Depending on how that goes I may have to change my racing plan for the year and do more steady stuff like TT's and road races. The constant surges of crits have done a number to my leg. I can do a 100 miles at a decent tempo but 30 minutes of constant sprints and my calf wants to shut down.
if you're hurt in March it's time to lay low and heal rather than push it and risk something more serious.
This week is a rest week for me on the bike.
Lifted upper body this morning, am going to the gym at lunch to do legs and test out some of rkwaki's exercises. Wish me luck!!!

3x20s @ 100% out there in the motherloving cold. 21F, 10F wind chill. To minimize airflow I was doing threshold on the tops to try to keep from going too fast.
Almost 2hrs of up and down riding in North Carolina. Temps were hovering around freezing with drizzle so we played it safe and stuck close to the rental. Looks like the weather will improve as the week goes on, but there is no snow on the ground so we are all good.
recovering from a hard weekend of training on the Amstel gold course. very sleepy and hungry all day.
Recovery day. Just a mellow ride to work and back.

i appreciate the compliment. i have gotten lots of inspiration from people on these and other forums over the years and hope that an occasional post or two inspires someone else.
Just over an hour at just over 100 rpm.
Recovery of sorts. (not super easy, but not tempo or hard either)
3rd week of Build 2 starts today.
