    I had 95% lean meatloaf followed with 6 Great Lakes Brewery's Dortmunder Gold's.

    That's the way sprinters roll.

    The only thing better than eating with sprinters is training with them. A slow long 40 lap warmup, a couple of hard efforts and then lunch.

    Tell me if I'm insane. I'm thinking about doing an 11 mile ITT next Saturday, March 15th. Then on Sunday morning (8:10a), I'd do a 40-minute Masters 55+/60+ followed by an afternoon (after 12:00p) 2 Km ITT and/or team pursuit (distance TBD) at the velodrome. I don't race in the rain or on dirt roads and I don't do ultra distances on my bike, but I'm considering doing this. Thoughts?

    BTW, VanceMac's prior "assault" on racing a criterium in the morning followed by the track events in the afternoon is "inspiring" me to THINK about doing the same.
    Thanks.

    Cleave, MEA is doing the ITT on Saturday and then Sunday doing the 500 m in the morning and pursuit in the afternoon. Do you want to do team pursuit with us? BTW, you, Vance, MEA and I could do a 4k team pursuit. Or you, Vance, Racer Ex and I do a team pursuit. That would be hard and I get dibs on the first guy out. Do not forget to register for LAVRA. It is pre-registration only.

    Do it. It certainly did not hurt Vance's performance in the afternoon.

    Narragansett is an old school New England old mans beer. Think Abita but not as refined. A thumper is a tall 16 ounce pull top can.

    A thumper is a single cylinder four stroke motorcycle, or a jackrabbit.

    What is this Santiago Canyon you speak of? There is mtb riding there but I think you are talking road ride.
    When are you going to check out the Santa Monica mountains?

    Shifting tires around on my bikes, now that Rouge-Roubaix is done. The 700x28 Conti Grand Prix I used are off the Allez, going onto the '87 Ironman; the 700x23 Krylions that were on the Allez are going back on those wheels, but those wheels are going onto the Look while I let the Allez sit for a while; the 700x25 Krylions on the Ironman are coming off until I burn through the 700x23s, then will be used in turn. I patched two tubes, one of which I used with the 700x23 Krylions. If I have time, I'll swap the good tires off the '97 Bianchi Trofeo I'm getting ready to put on Craigslist and put on the old Zaffiros that came with my CAAD9 back in November '08, and transfer the Regal from the Bianchi to my commuter.

    Made a slow cooker full of baby limas and sausage; had some for supper, washed down with Warsteiner dunkel. Actually a pretty nice way to spend an evening.
    Regards,
    Chuck

    Demain, on roule!

    I'm tired. I was up early trying to straighten out postal service issues (what part of "don't mail stuff to my SoCal house"is so hard for people to grasp?). 24 packages to UPS and the USPS. Ride and get called an "a-hole" by some fat loser because *gasp* I was only doing 38 in a 45 zone where he had a full lane to get around. Figured out positioning on the new track bike and ordered needed parts.

    You needed to vent, so you could relax for dinner, and cook well. There. See. I just coached.

    Rode at Laguna Seca last night, with the team, for fun, and with a burgeoning chest cold. Set two PRs and one second best in the only two laps I did. I should be sick more often. The fun is coming back!

    Good to hear, Sara. Doing efforts like that may keep you from feeling like the time "off" isn't destroying everything you've worked so hard to gain. Of course, it's not... but try telling yourself that.

    I have an appointment with a local framebuilder tomorrow to discuss a custom bike. I've been telling myself for years that one day I would have one, and why wait? I'll just get older.

    He's an unusual guy. First of all, he works in all materials - he'll build you a custom carbon, Ti, steel or alu frame. Second, he appears to be uninterested in making much money. He has quite a reputation in some circles, but never advertises, doesn't have a website, has never sought to expand. He just goes by word of mouth (currently has a three-month waiting list) and seems to love what he does. He builds very beautiful bikes.

    Which is what I want. I'm not looking for a bike to race - I really think there is no point in buying anything other than off-the-peg carbon for that. I want something that I will like the look of, and want to ride for long distances in challenging terrain. I'm thinking traditional geometry in steel - he and I have talked about stainless, or Columbus Spirit, or Reynolds 853 - with a slightly longer wheelbase and fractionally bigger clearances than my road bike. Something light enough to be a genuine performance bike but set up to be fine for six hours in the saddle when I want to relax.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to the consultation. One doesn't often get to specify something in quite such fine detail.
