    Good luck!

    The wind wasn't as bad as I thought it would be last night. 35mi, 2800 ft of steeep hills. So many steep hills. ~10x1-2', 3x5' intervals. Legs were pretty shot by end of it. Fitness is on the rise, legs are feeling better by the week. I'm getting excited for Sea Otter.

    Haha. Since I'm still relatively new to this "hey let's actually try and get faster by X date and race", my training so far has consisted of: just ride hard lots with sufficient rest when needed.

    At some point, a bit more structure will probably be good, but I haven't gotten there, yet. I hear Sea Otter brings out some heavy hitters, even in the 4's. Lots of upper-cat MTB guys who started road this season and got out the of the 5s quickly.

    didnt i tell you when you had a cold and were out doing 3x20s in the rain that it sounded to me like a good way to turn your cold into pneumonia? or was that someone else?

    I like the 'beard' label. Also, that is horrifying.

    Good luck to you and everyone else doing this race! I wish it was closer to me as the race may be better suited to my riding style better than what we have in SoCal. Plus there is a 40+ Cat4 race category which we dont have around either

    This was my first day riding after my work trip. When I'm off the bike for a week, the first ride is always suspect. Sometimes I feel fresh, but more often I'm just flat as a fart. Since I only have a week until the next trip, I've decided to do a short "push" on the ftp. Today I did 60 straight minutes of 90% ftp, so a nice dose of SST. I actually felt good and had some legs. *like*

    Finally got out and rode for what felt like forever off the bike. Went out and rode in the pounding rain with my dad for 2 hours. It was so cold that for the last 20km or so our feet would hurt just to push down on the pedals..it was nice to get out though. Got in 5x5' at a pretty hard pace and finished off the ride at a bit of a lower pace, just starting to feel the aftermath pain now, it'll be fun waking up tomorrow morning and running for gym class

    Had issues keeping a steady power output while trying do 3' intervals in a 25mph wind. Averages were okay, but I was all over the place.
