TMI = PHI!

or vice-a-versa?

Protected health information (PHI) is any information about health status, provision of health care, or payment for health care that can be linked to a specific individual. This is interpreted rather broadly and includes any part of a patient's medical record or payment history.

My brother in law, team mate and sometimes training partner is having a great season in leading the NUE Masters Series with just a few races to go. We don't ride together as often this year since his races are 8-9 hrs long and mine are 45 minutes or less. We will get together soon as our training becomes focused on the season ending Iceman Cometh MTB race in MI.

Upper body gym workout last night. I am stronger and have more upper body mass since I have been focusing more time in the gym. My weight is stable. I do not think this does much for my cycling but I will take what I can get. My analogy is similar to basketball. Capitalize on what the defense will give you. I am in this for the long term.

Two days of JRA at Clear Lake Monday and Tuesday. I love that CAAD 10! I love dropping the Tall Russian, too, he makes it too easy. He did say to me "you're climbing really fast". It will get better. The riding felt good - really good!

Grand total of 5 kilos at the track. But they were all full gas. Hurt.

Tonight after work, I'm heading to the first semi-organized local CX ride of the season. http://www.gheto.cx/?page_id=1095 Should be a good time.

Did some openers today. Rough start but it didn't take long to get way out of the power zone without really trying. I passed a group of cyclists (remarkable at 6am out here), made sure that they were ok, then one proceeds to chase me down and pass me hard while announcing "nice day". Well, I'm in a rest period, and JRA is pretty much the focus, so I could not let a challenge like that just ride away. It didn't take much to catch him. He wasn't interested in talking, he wanted to try and drop me. Which, of course, he didn't, much to his dismay. We parted ways when he gave up. Power targets were a little higher than planned but it was fun.

That's like doping.

We did a Kilo TT as part of last Friday's Omnium. I forget how much a standing start takes out of you.

They certainly do. I've never done more than 2 or 3 before a hard workout. I'd like to do get a fast kilo time in the books at some point, so I'll have to keep them in fairly regular rotation.

What kind of turnout do you get for a Friday night omnium? What catgories?

I'm still a Cat 4 and have been doing the 3/4 races. We usually have 10-12 racers in the 3/4 field. The Women and cat 5's have about 6-10 and the 1-2-3's get 6-9 racers. Based on results I should Cat up but will wait until the end of the season. I did win the last three Onmiums. I'm not sure why, but in races I always seem to be in the right place, make the right move and at the right time kill it and no one can match it. What's cool is some of the guys are 2/3's on the road that I would never see at the end of a race.

The 1-2-3's have several guys with road and Crit national stripes and I see no reason to be pack fodder there.

That's awesome. "I'm not sure why"...ha. It's called all your racing experience! Luck is the residue of design and all that.

Yes! This is one of the many cool things about track. At our little rinky dink keirin event at Encino 2 weeks ago, I was up against 1) Filipino national champion, 2) US national champion, and 3) Gibby Hatton. Then last week, my category was won by an Olympic hopeful, and 2nd went to an ex-Olympian. Cool stuff that is very, very surreal to me.

This morning's ride shall forvever remain in my memory as the TT pace ride when a High School chick yelled "You have a nice butt!" after I went slowly past her and her friends in the underpass next to the school. To my credit, I replied "Thanks!" rather than "You too!".

Reflector Guy was in the far west underpass, with his reflectors out, and now sporting a bicycle. He was still sleeping. Another tunnel had something like 4 people - (rain last night).

I did two endurance pace rides this week one Tuesday and one this morning. They were on the same route and almost exactly the same distance and time. On Tuesday I used my Look 585 with no power meter, and this morning I used my Specialized Allez with the Powertap. It was interesting seeing how the data came out with and without a power meter. The data was uploaded to Training Peaks.

Look Allez
Time: 1:59:22 1:58:41
Distance: 35.58 miles 35.59 miles
Speed: 17.9 mph 18.0 mph
Calories: 898 1187
TSS 98.0 115.9
IF .66 .77
Average HR 123 119

Tuesday was windier, which probably explains the higher HR. The other differences are pretty sizeable, even taking into account variables within the ride.

I see the ability to drink two more beers without a weight gain penalty when analyzing the two rides.
