    Ru**i*g sucks - can I get an Amen?

    Yesterday, more 1 minute intervals x 5. The intensity is paying off, both in fitness, sustained power, and tummy reduction (yay!). I'll still be above the weight I was last year at Long Beach, though. But, I think I'm a little stronger. The proof is on the pavement, right?

    Numbers don't tell the whole story but they do frame the plot. Good luck at Long Beach.

    Why would make people leave the sport?

    During the late 1990s there was a guy in my club who was a solid Type A personality. He was very successful in commercial real estate and apparently came cycling after getting bored with golf. He went full bore into cycling and bicycle racing. He had a number of high end road and TT bikes and even had a 4-person tandem (quad?) to ride with his family. He got real fast, real fast and started winning local 40+ Masters races. I think it was the beginning of his 3rd season, people started marking him and made things hard for him. He wasn't winning races that on paper he should have.

    Before mid-summer, he quit racing and sold all of his bikes for pennies on the dollar. I haven't seen him since.

    BTW, this was during my "dad" years and I was racing less than 10 times per year and training a similar amount so I was of no use to him as a teammate. It was interesting to watch from a slight insider's view.
    Thanks.

    Saw Racer Ex last week. He looked pretty mellow. Will be good to see the BF gang on my home circuit. I am going to need all of the home field advantage that I can muster because I really wan to go to Minneapolis in 2015. There are a lot of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives place in Minneapolis for some reason.
    Thanks.

    I like the eBay quote, too! Cleave, that was a good story. I've known people like that.

    Fell apart on the TT bike again this morning. I'd be really distressed that this happening so close to my A races, except that I know why. I changed the setup on the bike prior to my last training session on it. When I blew up on that one I attributed it to not feeling well, and that was part of it, but not the whole story. Today's workout caused a light in Sara's little brain to come on - I've got the setup all dorked up. Lowering the stem one spacer has 1) affected my breathing 2) makes my shoulders and upper arms cramp up 3) makes me much less efficient at processing lactic acid 4) all of which make me S L O W E R. I might be less aerodynamic with that spacer back in there, but I can't ride the bike the way it is now. I'm putting the spacer back in. I'll mess with the setup when the races are done and I've got the time and have someone to help me.

    It was very obvious, IBO. It's amazing how a small change can affect how a rider gets along with their bike!

    This week certainly went better than the last one. I've upped the hydration and started pre-loading as well, and that seems to be helping in a major way. Yesterday's ride was the best in quite a while - 2:24, with two hours of it in the middle of Z3. Today was three hours at endurance pace, with the Garmin reporting a high of 100 degrees (though it always reads a few degrees high) and no problems. For the week: 12:56, TSS 763.

    No ru**ing, though...IBO is a friggin' beast!

    Indeed. The most I've done in a day, and my legs were good from start to finish.

    My non-training plan, training plan, seems to be working.
