Demain, on roule!
3hr today. Watts are about 10w less than where I want them for endurance rides, which is surprisingly good. Struggling with the length a bit still. Think both of those should come in the next couple weeks. So all is looking good at the moment. Surprised how fast the bottom end is coming back. I am doing a lot of push training though so makes sense.

PR by 1:04 on a ~20min climb:
Team training ride this morning, which we do every week. These rides are fun but very tough, typically higher NP than races. This morning was a notch harder, in fact I stopped to check my brake wasn't rubbing or anything. But it was just because one of our guys (a former rower with the British national team) is in peak form. 12-15 minute PRs for me.
Then I came home to a wifely frenzy of summer house cleaning, and had to move a bunch of aquarium stuff and furniture. Pretty wiped out now!
Now that I have punted on the rest of my season, I have morphed into shovelfred. 4.5 hours, 81 miles, 3300 feet, 2465 Kj. Beat.
awesome. and not fred at all.

I love riding my bike.
Long 4+ hr hilly ride today, Holyoke to Greenfield loop, 3 major climbs, steepest will be Sugarloaf in South Deerfield off of rt.116, but enough flats or rolling to recover in between. Hope to be recovered fully from yesterday's 6+ hours in the sun working Special Olympics Bocce tournament.
Will update later today..
Discolated right hand middle finger yesterday ( gardening, really ???) so I can empathize with Shoveldh. Plus I have a tennis match tomorrow. Should be interesting.

Ah.... Voila les Cannon ... !!
Shoulda shouted me down, man. I could have met up with you in Noho.
The only thing worse than an indoor trainer is a treadmill. 60' of sweat and boredom.
Cyclists of the world, unite! You have nothing to lube but your chains!
ETA: Strava link, for those who want an illustration of old and slow.

Demain, on roule!
The index and middle fingers on my left hand were amputated due to complications from a lawn mower accident when I was 14. So I'm down two fingers already. With the injury to the ring finger, I cannot bend it enough to wrap around the bars. That leaves me the remaining half of my index finger and thumb, and my pinky, as the only body parts holding onto the bars on the left side. I could race on the hoods but I don't race on the hoods, I race exclusively in the drops unless I'm climbing. I also can't sprint because I can't pull up hard on the bars. I should just take a picture
yes picture please
Yeah, I get it now
The weather is great up here in New England. Come on out.
