I took today off from riding , I thought I pulled a Glute muscle but it isn't even sore today, I usally ride 32 mile a day and skip a day or 2 during the week, so distance I feel comfortable with distance , its the going like a bat our of he__ the entire ride it was a first for me, I did manage around 21-22 on the way out and sort of bonked at the turn around when I realized there was'nt really a tail wind, and I was starting to
feel warm and Dry, I noticed that I had a little fever for about 6 hours after the ride and two quarts of gatoraide light helped alot. I am really not sore at all today ,I didn take some aminoacids when I got home and drank a couple of those training beverage (Miller-lite) it help flush out the lactic-acid hey its my theory and I am sticking to it. HEre's the race location

Velo Racing Virginia
Sundays: June 20th and August 15th the last race listed on the VA racing list is the 16 of june I hope my racing team post the times before them, I was passed by acouple youger people with those TT bikes and helmits those wheels are noisy as heck I could hear them coming for miles creeking like that.
I must say it was the most effort I have ever put out in my life, and I used to run distance when I was younger, this was more painful to experience I must say like a try out for Navy Diving with the pullup , pushups and the running and swimming for time they never allow to recover before you move to the next stage I should try a TRI but my running is a lost cause with my back problems.
I will post my time I should have placed some where above 10th place in the masters not willing to say more for now but we wll see.
That Rep from USAC was all over the Volunteers to be sure it was done by the rules and I was carded when I signed up they couldn't believe I was a Master's I am 59 but my birthday is in OCt so I probably was the younger than the rest. Did I mention that I am off all my BP meds since ridding bikes the last 2 years.
I will improve by next year hope to loose at least 30 LPBs I weighed around 220 for the trial. I will seek out a used TT helmet and wheels by next year for my Alan bike.
Hey I did pass a few younger people on the way back. they started several mins before me..go grandpa and the cheering at the finish helped ease the pain... hehe
