    Opener, with form sprints, for tomorrow's 60+ crit. We start 15" behind the 50's. I have a plan - we'll see how it pans out.

    My coach had me do openers today for Sunday. 4x1' fast pedals alternating with 3x3' threshold intervals, 2' RBI, all in a 1:30 endurance pace ride. Tomorrow is 1:30 at recovery pace.

    It was 73 degrees when I started today's ride.

    PT came back yesterday! It's now a G3. It's lighter, even!

    I had a really good training ride on Thursday. Ex said "group ride", and because I was too late to ride with my group (of one other), I did it on my own. My plan was to ride the major highway between where I live and where I work. It's good route. Steady climbs in both directions, only a few traffic lights, and a wide shoulder. I felt like things were coming together, all of that form changing training was starting to gel, and I wanted to test it. Ex and I went over nutrition this past week, too, so I loaded up the water bottles and my jersey pockets with nutritional goodness, the intent to see if and where the bonk would happen (it can and usually does). I warmed up, hit the route, rode steadily right at threshold, kept the cadence spooled up, ate and drank when I was supposed to, and settled in. I had no intention of drilling it at any point or trying to do something silly like "see how fast I can go". Steady, smooth, spin. S T E A D Y, S M O O T H, S P I N. That's the way it turned out. And you know what? I was a bit faster over the route than I've ever been in the past, and when I when I finished the ride (1 hour 48 minutes), I was still fairly fresh.

    It all worked. Now we're getting some where.

    Road race next Saturday. Stage race in three weeks. Another road race a week after that. I need some crits!!

    I was really looking forward to an outdoor group ride today. Temps were going to be 21 at start time going up to 27. One hour before the scheduled starting time it started snowing. We ended up with 2" and the ride was called off. I was scheduled for 2.5 -3 hrs at Z2/3 and I did 2.5 hrs on the rollers watching the Olympic XC ski events that I DVR'd.

    Ice fishing on Lake Erie tomorrow. The winter has blessed us with 20" of ice.

    I'm loving the XC skiing and biathlon. Best moment was when one of the finishers in the women's 15K biathlon went to her hands and knees after the finish and puked a bit. We here know exactly what that's like. I was cracking up.

    TallWife watched the crit Saturday, something I twist her arm to do once per year. I rolled over after the finish, then excused myself to "spin out" so I could hack out my lung out of her view. I attack a lot when she is watching, and gave her a thumbs up as I led the pack past her with 4 to go.

    That XC skiing does remind me a LOT of cycling. Some of the terms are even the same! It sure looks like it hurts, too.

    It does, and I never raced, just did long miles on the trails with Mrs. Shovel when we were young.

    I had a cycling tell me recent (no, not the cycling coach we know and love, another one) that XC skiing is THE best cross training for cycling. After watching that race yesterday, I believe it!

    We have a new teammate who grew up XC skiing in Alaska. He is new to cycling, and tearing it up.

    I am enjoying the Olympics especially the cross country skiing. When I worked for a Finnish company, my wife and I made a trip to the Finnish lapland and did classic cross country skiing. It was amazing skiing in Finland north of the arctic circle. Miles and miles of rolling ski tracks. I tried the freestyle skate skiing in Deer Valley, UT and it is hard to get the technique.

    Norway, who was favored in the cross country events for medals, is having about a much success as our US long track skating team. Norway has a waxing problem and we have a skinsuit problem. The Swedes are cleaning up in cross country. The Dutch are totally amazing at long track speed skating this year and I was impressed with the 9.5 second 100 meter from a standing start split time in the 500 meter race.

    We are doing a training camp in March in Arizona put on by the Cycling House. One of our NorCal friends is doing it as well and at Road Nationals last year in Bend, we met a couple more people that attend. It is supposed to be a very cool camp with great food, routes and support. And we get to add Mount Lemon to our mountain resume.

    I think you picked a good one, Hermes. Tucson is the capital of winter training camps... in large part because of Mt. Lemon. Tucson is also very bicycle friendly, although not known for its pristine pavement. Those of us up here in Phoenix pick on them about that... if you launch a water bottle rocket here, it's "What? Are we in Tucson?"

    When I went out to Ft. Huachuca in 2010 for my last training assignment, when I thought I was going to be deployed one last time before I retired from the Guard, I brought my bike and spent two weekends riding with a Tucson club. It was awesome. When I win the lottery, I'll probably move there. Shoot, after 23 years in Louisiana, I'm used to crummy roads.

    I can only dream of a warm weather training camp. I fully intended to do my OG hill repeats with OTS explosions on the road this afternoon. We woke up with 8" of new snow today. Yuk!!! I guess I should have seen it coming yesterday. Took this image yesterday at dawn when it was -4 degrees. That's the mainland about 5 miles to the East. The old saying "red sky at night sailor's delight, red sky at morning mariners take warning" certainly applied.
