My favorite ride of the year is coming up in 6 days - the Civil War Century. Been doing it for years but between an office move, a tree hitting my house and bad weather, I haven't riden in almost 2 months. Take that back, I went out for a hard ride yesterday but only got 35 miles in.
So I'm about to go out again and this time I'm going to try to ride a bunch of hill loops. That's probably my biggest weakness at this point (besides a sore butt) - hills kill me and this Century has 7,000 feet of climbing. It looks like every day this week I can fit in at least an hour ride (maybe more on a couple of days) - can anyone suggest a workout routine in this condensed timeframe? I don't want to overdo it, but if I can prepare even a bit, that might help. I realize there's only so much I can do - there is a bailout at about 75 miles and I'll probably be doing that.
