also 3 hours on the rollers after dinner hopefully. I just need to get back to riding for a long time. all the early season races are long, so i just need ot be comfortable for 3-4 hours on the bike. I dont think speed will be too big of an issue becuase i can just jra in the middle of the pack *knock on wood*

jsutkeepspining 02-17-13 03:57 PM

but i don't care. Im feel extra lazy these days

I say do it, even if you're fat and slow, it could highlight some places where you lack and need improvement. And who knows, you might get lucky and earn those upgrade points! You've got nothing to lose.

1 hour easy, team skills clinic, then hammerfest group ride. The good news is that I'm climbing really well right now, some fast guys showed up today and only one guy is going uphill faster than me. And he's on my team. Hopefully I'm going to get faster still. The bad news was that one of my teammates crashed hard near the end of the ride. Like, briefly unconscious, don't move him, call the EMTs hard. He messed his face/teeth up pretty bad, pretty clearly was concussed. Fortunately we've heard back from the ER that he doesn't seem to have any spinal injuries, thank goodness. I'm pretty torn up for him, he's a young guy in a new city, a good rider who really loves riding and racing. I hope he recovers quickly and fully.

Edit: Apparently NOT concussed, already stitched up and released. Phew. Still needs some new teeth. :(

I'm always reading about everyone training so I thought it's about time for me to join in.

Sat was a good 4.5hr, 85 mile and 4,700ft day with a TSS of 276. Good ride, maybe I went a little bit harder than I should but the last couple weeks have been lacking and it was nice out.

Today was a local group ride 4:15, 88 miles, 2,700ft and a TSS of 229. Was feeling yesterday for most of the ride but I really felt it as we put the hammer down for the last 20ish miles - that hurt. Hopefully I'm coming around.

I've told you before, you want to race fast, race often.

Good SST ride at lunch after a tempo commute this morning. On the lunch ride, I hit a steep 45sec hill really hard (12% average grade, spikes to 17%). That went well and the :45 effort netted me a 695W 1' power with the roll-up. I think I may be able to pull off 710W or so 1' right now. Things are looking better than they did last week.

Virten 02-18-13 09:57 PM

about 4 hrs 11 mins with tss 260, 5k ft climbing

caloso 02-18-13 10:20 PM

10x5' hill repeats. Forgot my garmin so no power or heart rate data, but the legs say that was a good workout.

Jancouver 02-18-13 10:47 PM

Went to group ride > got dropped on a first hill > went home > life is good :crash:

... at least got to see some familiar faces > looking strong Tmonk!

Fat Boy 02-18-13 11:02 PM

kensuf 02-19-13 06:59 AM

I'll bet they do. Nice work.

grolby 02-19-13 05:32 PM

2.5 hours easy. Was going to do 2x20s, but felt flat and unmotivated. Tomorrow!

jsutkeepspining 02-19-13 05:40 PM

coughing and dyding intervals. trying to get around 6 coughs per minute. Been over achieving and doing 10 coughs per minute. I think i've lost 8 lbs in snot over the course of the day.

Lose another 8lbs in water-weight and you'll be good to win a couple hill climbs or mtn RRs.

Really though, hope you feel better. I've got a sinus infection coming on something serious and it's hard to think, let alone train.

jsutkeepspining 02-19-13 09:09 PM

yeah i'v been struggling just to get on the bike for a couple of weeks, and i would randomly zone ou completly during class. I finally went to the doctor after my mom and one of my friends wouldn't stop bugging me. Pff sounds like made up ****, phenomena; who's ever heard of that ****?

sstang13 02-19-13 09:42 PM

1 hour recovery ride #1 - It was good, if only training were like that all the time.. first 30 minutes went by quite fast but then I noticed and watched the time as it passed slowly for the last 30 min, I hate indoors.

kensuf 02-20-13 06:49 AM

Last night: 45 minutes with 3 sets of crit intervals while playing in rush-hour traffic and trying to dodge rain. I ran into a friend after finishing the first set, he decided to sit on my wheel for the second set, when I hit the third rep he quit. I think I'm getting fitter. (I said fitter, not fatter dammit)

But damn good looking...


BTW I did "Staring at Fitness Chicks Doing Stiff Legged Deadlift" Intervals last night. THat was after I pulled up a 405 stiff legged (no lifting straps)

Creatre 02-20-13 08:32 AM

1.5hr w/ 7x2min @ max (but sorta paced so I didn't blow up). Ended up with 5.7w/kg for the first 6, and finished em off with the last one at 6.1w/kg.

Staring at Fitness chicks tends to leave lots of things stiff.

Oh, 5 hours today. A bunch of functional strength work beginning 3 hours in. I'm pooped.

Hahaha, nope. Cold, and I've been fatigued this week for some reason. Hopefully it's just because I've been struggling to sleep a bit more than usual, not because I'm coming down with anything. Planning on some big days for the 2nd half of the week, which is my usual pattern anyway.

mattm 02-20-13 05:52 PM

3.5 hours, climbing.

Page Mill climb, Skyline, Hwy 84, Portola, Elena loop.
