    Does a sick day count as a rest day?

    Do two days in bed with food poisoning/stomach flu count as rest days, or would you add another day off the bike if you were due for a rest day when you got sick?

    Nothing could thrill me more than having my subjective race analyiys serve as the fodder for extended faux debate, but suffice it to say that overtraining + 50 yr old legs + no real warmup = a...

    I'm showing up cold and racing if I get there before the start signal. If I get dropped in the first lap, it'll just be a sucky race.

    Unless, of course you rarely ride that much. Big workouts are relative to your normal workout. If someone rides 5-10 miles once or twice a week, a 6 hr century is a HUGE ride. If they ride 20-40...

    To be fair, I'm a 50 yr old cat 5. I rarely sprint over 38 even with a warmup.

    Not competing is an option, but as a new racer in a rural area (translation - 100-200 miles away from any regular events), I'm trying to get experience where and when I can. A DNP finish is still...

    Fortunately, it's a weekly series and we use the same bib through the season, and my prior appt is at the doctor's office, so I'll be able to put on my kit when I leave. It'll still be close, but at...
  10. How close to the event should your warmup be?

    Ideally, I'd love for my warmup to transition directly to a race with as little delay as possible. However, I have an appointment immediately before tomorrow's race that will allow me a max of 10-15...

    This. I'd just call that video riding in traffic. I see the same sort of thing when I'm driving. My typical reaction is to grimace, say something more profane than "jerk!!" And go on with my day.

    No one has ever asked me. If they did, I think it'd have to do more with them looking at my legs than my preferences in grooming.

    FWIW, waxing is better than shaving.

    If you have other things to do and you're not having fun, why ride a century? Ride a shorter distance or ride another day. Nobody has to ride a century to eat.
