    Gracias. I was surprised to be there, but wanted more, of course. Interestingly, NP for the crit was only 285W... felt like 320...

    Yesterday was ~4 hours. Started solo for 1.5 hours @ z2 HR, 2-3 power. Then hooked up with the club for an hour of BS riding. After that did an hour of our simulated circuit race...spent a lot of time in the wind. Finished it up with an easy 1/2 hour ride home.

    Today, got up early and, in honor of the nutrition thread, did a ride on nothing but black tea. Well, in the water bottle I had some BCAA's, but that's not for fuel...it's a muscle sparing thing. Anyway, I did my local hill repeat. ~1 minute climb at ~9% grade. Five of those, then rode over to my mall ring road and did a 1/2 hour at SST. Started thinking about food at exactly 3 minutes and 23 seconds into the ride (I looked), but once I started to work, it was no big deal.

    I'm happy with a couple pretty good days.

    Yea. I was sick three weeks ago, just enough that I didn't want to ride for fear of making it worse. Last week I had a good week but did too much and ended it with a ride that turned very cold on Sunday, getting tired and chilled. Oops. This week I was sick again. I only got two rides in, wasting much of what's been very good weather for Northern California in winter.

    It's good that my important races aren't until May and June because at this rate I won't be fit until then.

    Everyone around me, friends and at work, are sick! With the flu. It hasn't hit me (yet). I'm washing, washing, WASHING, my hands and I'm hyper conscious of everything I touch. My first crit of the season is next Sunday, and please oh please don't let me get sick! It's going to be hard enough when feeling good.

    3.2 hour ride with 2 x 20 at FT in the middle.
    Lifted on the legs and then a few laps in the pool to cool down.

    Yeah, and protein shakes after the ride and lifting!

    Off to Scottsdale tonight on bidnez.
    Bummer I missed it. I needed to get on the TT bike though in a bad way before races started.

    Got 5hr in today at .78IF steady for about 300 TSS. Was super wicked windy.

    Two hours in the hills today, then a 60 minute training crit in the afternoon. I was afraid the race would be cancelled due to some stupid game on tv, but it wasn't!!

    Form is coming around, slowly..

    Fri: 2x20
    Sat: 3 hrs z2
    Sun: 3 hrs group ride with a new group. Nice people, good pace. Think I'll go back next week.

    Today: rest. Too soon to tell for sure, but I suspect there may be some gummy bears involved.

    Schedule change for cyclocross worlds gave me an extra day off on Saturday. Made it out Sunday to the team ride - rode down, took a couple hard pulls, rode up the hardest climb (more fast than steep), turned around and went home so I would have time to get ready for a Super Bowl party (priorities, right?). Still a solid 2 1/4 hours. I can feel the payoff from starting the higher-intensity stuff a couple weeks ago already. I was climbing damn fast. It will be very interesting to see how things are going when I start my first race of the season in 7 weeks.

    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.

    1.5 hours with ~1 hour at Z3+. Made a run at a nearby climb I like to test on, set a PR by 6 seconds. Not much, but a sign I'm headed in the right direction, and the trajectory is still up.

    Rest weeks are fun. Just tooling around with a friend at lunch, launching up a couple steeps here and there.

    This guy is short, and realized that if he maintains a really low position, he can get completely under the top of my draft. He said the wind was coming up from behind him at 37mph and going the wrong way on his jersey. he was also able to watch the road ahead under my saddle. lol makes me feel like a freak show.
