    Yesterday: 70 degree temps, 3.5 hours on the MTB on trails with friends, mostly Zone 2, some 3/4 but short efforts. Dropped off my friends, put my daughter in the trailer, and rode another 1 hour on bike paths at Zone 1/2.

    Today: on the trainer in a minute for 1 hour total, 40 minutes of it at low Zone 4. Off the bike (lifting) tomorrow. Race in 1 week (3 hour MTB).

    T-rod, why do I get the feeling that your zone 2 is your friends zone 4? Yesterday was a great day to be out on the bike.

    Just under 80 mi enduro ride yesterday. I got to see sun, snow, sleet, rain all on the same route. Exciting.
    Took just over 5 hours with over 5k' of climbing. Since my longest race is 80 mi, I think that'll be the longest I'll do.
    Quads ached like a ***** after 4 hours.

    The bike or the ride? The bike because my Felt is broken. The ride because its the offseason.

    All I'm saying is ... large pigs can run faster than you think.

    2 easy hours this morning to spin the legs out after the CX race yesterday. I left at 6am and it was 44 degrees. I know that's no big deal for most of you guys, but I need better gloves when it gets cool. With the exception of cold fingers, it was a really nice morning.

    Planning to do 140 pulls and 200 push ups. Perhaps a 30 min spin on my stationary bike in the basement.

    Cross race yesterday. Cross race today + 90min of Z2 on the road bike. Great weather today!
    If I was as good at racing bikes as I am at racing cars youd all be in for a world of hurt!

    3 hours Z2 today. Missed my target time for the week by 1/2 hour, but hey, I was sick! So that's fine. Also, I squeezed 7 hours into the last three days, so that should do pretty well as far as getting some adaptations. I felt pretty fatigued in the last hour today, which is exactly how I think I should have felt. Day off tomorrow.

    Meh...
    problem is I'm digging being back at the gym right now. Legs look crazy but new bike should be ready tomorrow or Tuesday.
    Btw I'm far beyond getting taunted by young punks like you.
