    AJ heal quick Tagaderm works wonders... I have some on my leg right now where I managed to scratch my leg getting off the bike because of my bee sting... but you can leave it on for days... wear it in shower.. no scabbing... heals faster..no sticking to the sheets...etc...conforms to the joint as well...

    After an email exchange with Ex yesterday, I've decided to bail on the road race and contest a Race of Truth on Sunday instead. As he pointed out, there is a 60+ women's field. Plus, he'll be there. And, Winters as a course doesn't suit me, plus I'm not on form enough to really do much there. So, I'll go out of this season exactly like I started - bailing on a road race and doing a time trial. Full circle! Fitting.

    Sara- unless its the rare occasion where I need to help a team mate or support the team at our races, I usually will pick and choose the race and discipline that offers me the best result or training. The TT fits your needs and you should not think twice about the decision.

    I agree, guys - Ex was dead on, the decision is a good one. I'd like to have done both (and still could), but Ex feels that the road race will take too much out of me and the TT will suffer as a result. He knows me better than I do!

    AJ, I think you should consider this kit for whenever you even think about getting into cross mode:

    Funny how that works. I had to miss the practice crit this week because of back-to-school stuff, so I asked Ex for an alternative workout to do yesterday morning. I was sure it would be a criss-cross "X" workout, which is what I would have done if left to my own devices. Nope. It was 3 x 10 at fast pace on the TT bike. Made perfect sense after I had done it and thought about it. State TT is coming up, so training TT will help get me at least somewhat better for that, and will help for Sunday's RR as well. Today was an hour of pace, with half of it in the 53-11, again on the TT bike. I'm looking forward to the race Sunday. I plan to sit in, but watch for any split when we go uphill and try to be on the right side of it. It's a combined 40+/50+ Cat 4/5. If I were in shape, I'd attack the heck out of it. It will be a small field, and a break of 2-3 could stay away. The climb is just a bit over a minute long, and that is a duration where you can just bury yourself and then recover.

    Looks like it will work! I would need to make sure I get some armor piercing pins in order to affix my race number.

    I did take Colonelmon's advice and got the Tegrederm patches yesterday. Thanks for the tip! I purchased a package of 4 but will buy an assorted sized inventory for the next time's.

    I could have/should have used Tagaderm on my knee. Three weeks later and it's finally closed completely up. It's been a real bother. Lesson learned!

    Got in the two hr ride with 1 hr of a increased intensity interval on the MTB trail tonight. It was the aborted workout I was heading out to when I crashed on Tue. Riding over rooty MTB trails on a cross bike is a bone shaker. I thought the last 15' of the interval @ Z4 would be difficult. The difficult part of the interval was keeping the HR in the assigned Z3 ranges. Only touched the ground two times and only with my shoes when I dismounted to go around a drop and some large rocks that I feared pinching the size 32 mm tires into.

    After getting my butt kicked doing the endo I needed to get right back on the horse. My arm is still sore but it was not limiting.

    We made to Roger's session with 15 minutes to spare and hooked up with Cleave. We did the two interval sessions and the motor game. Good times.

    Heading for Clear Lake in a little while for five days up there. I'll do a recovery ride on the TT bike today, then go to Vacaville tomorrow to ride with RR and her SO. I won't be racing the Winters road race tomorrow. I'll do an openers ride instead, saving matches for the TT at Castro Valley on Sunday (Tempus Fugit ITT, Red Kite Series). I'll see Ex at the TT. I'm also "interviewing" for a team for next season while at the TT. It's going to be a fun weekend!

    This should wrap up my season, although if I can find a crit or something in September I might be tempted! October will be a "down month" because I'll be off the bike for 12 days due to a school I have to attend in Texas. I might ship a bike down there (if I can afford it) so I can at least keep some of my hard-fought fitness.

    Yep, always good to see Hermes and Velo Diva in-person. Fun (sort of ) to do intervals at the track again after being away for about a month.
    Thanks.

    First real track-specific workout in several weeks. Needed that. Love that kind of burn. Basically: 5 kilos, 5 kilos, 10x500m.

    Well, I am getting a little tired of getting dropped on Cantelow. (Winters RR). Climbers don't even consider it a climbing race, but it's always enough to shed my fat ass. At least now I have a discrete training goal for 2014.

    Somewhat strange training week...nominally a recovery week, had two nice hour-long recovery rides, one with a hrTSS of 41 and the other with a TSS of 22.6. Three other rides that ended up with TSS of 133, 156 and 155. One of those last three should've been ~TSS 100, but I was feeling froggy and when some of the guys on the group ride yesterday asked if anyone wanted to go farther and faster, I jumped. Bad Chuck, bad Chuck! Note to self - no long pulls when you're the only guy without aerobars.

    Racing is over here, but I had to set some goals to give myself (and my coach) something to work with/toward. Right now I've set the Austin Livestrong Challenge as the next one, with a mid-February circuit race/crit weekend in the San Antonio/Austin area as a follow on, and Rouge-Roubaix in mid-March next. You folks on the Left Coast have it made when it comes to racing.
    Regards,
    Chuck

    Demain, on roule!

    Changing seasons means changing bikes. I still may do one Crit on Sept 8 but no RR's. There are still a few Fast Friday Track races, the first cyclo cross races begin in two weeks and the Iceman Comenth MTB race in MI is my fall A race.

    Training is also in transition after a little break from the NSG and Masters Track Nats. In the past four days I have done a 2 hr road bike group ride in PA, two hrs on the cross bike with 1 hr of the ride on MTB trails with a Z3/4 HR, 2 hrs on the MTB at a easy smooth pace, and tonight I have Z5b two minute intervals that I plan to do on the track.

    It's a bicycle quadfecta! Maybe when it rains tomorrow I will get some trainer or roller riding in.. At this time of the year the TT bike can continue hanging in the garage.

    Somehow I got an abrasion or saddlesore from my mini track camp and racing last week. I showed up on race day Sunday and hurt like hell. It is on the scrotum (TMI). I went to the demo yesterday and saw the physicians assistant who is a woman. The last time I saw her it was for a saddle sore. I feel like every time I see her she is doing close inspection of the netherlands. However, she is a magician and it is much better today.
