    I was talking to a friend of mine- a couple of years ago (or maybe 3 years, not sure), Carmichael was on the lancearmstrong.com website in the training section (remember when he'd talk about what Armstrong's training schedule was and what they did, etc.?), and he detailed what Armstrong did for his warm up before doing a time trial. It was a 45 minute warm up, and it had a description of how long he stayed at what heart rate, and what the point of the warm up ride was, and maybe even detailed cadence.

    Anyway, I can't find it. Apparently, I must have been insane that day. It's not on my computer.

    If anyone has it, or knows where I can find it, post it here, or drop me a PM.

    Yes, I've googled it, yahoo.com'ed it, askjeeve'ed it, webcrawler'ed it... I even accoona'ed it- and accoona never lets me down!

    It doesn't really matter how Lance warms up unless you're just curious. What works for Lance probably won't work for you or someone you know for several reasons. One reason, Lance has extremely good lactate buffering/resynthesis and one of the purposes of the warm up is to activate those buffering/resynthesis mechanisms. What he needs to do to accomplish this will be quite different from your needs, and even somewhat different from his own teammates.

    Another reason for differences is that his recovery between efforts is far better than ours so he can warm-up much harder than us. These are just two of the reasons...

    He also does not warm up for just 45 minutes if you count the 1-2 hour ride he does before his formal warm-up, and don't forget the massage(s) in there too. And the (legal) injection of certain vitamins and sports supplements...

    No dear.

    I am asking for a totally different reason. Not for myself. Not for anyone else. I got a bet riding on it, for one. For another, there's a woman who talked to me about it, and we're trying to remember what it was that he did.

    And he did not say that he does 1- 2 hour rides before his warm up when he does an ITT. Carmichael was talking about the ITT and what he did to prepare for it in the hour before he did the ride. It was very specific.

    All right- again, I'm looking for the article Carmichael wrote talking about Lance's warm up ride. No lectures on what he does or doesn't do. No suggestions from others on what they'd do. I'm just looking for the article.

    Thanks!

    Damn, now I'm interested too. I wonder if you emailed CTS, if they could point you in the right direction?

    That's an idea, but I wonder if they'd even just give it up like that.

    If there was a way to search through the lancearmstrong.com archives, that would make life easier. But when it became the Paceline, it's like they just removed everything they ever did for the lancearmstrong.com website.

    I just shot off an email. I tried to be as specific as possible. I do remember a lot of the particulars of the article he wrote, but it's like in pieces or something. What a shame. They took down all that training info, and it was something that I always found to be very interesting. I should have copied all of them.

    That's not the article, though I have that one in my files.

    Thanks for trying, though. Really- this article will be a toughie. It was only written by Carmichael on the lancearmstrong.com website about 3 years ago when he was going through Lance's training program and describing different training rides he'd put Lance through. I just don't think it's even archived anymore.

    Have you tried looking here:

    http://www.archive.org/

    It is an internet archive site that periodically downloads and stores web sites. Maybe you could search their archive. I just tried it, but my firewall at work for some reason won't let me search it.

    I think there are a few other archive sites as well.

    Not a peep. I'd be surprised to hear from them at all. But oh well. We'll see.

    Taking a tip from Siu Blue Wind, I too am typing a lengthy passage of text down here to demonstrate the enormous amount of space available should one wish to use it-- in sharp contrast to the avatar text above this part.

    I think it's in Chris' book 'Ultimate Ride'. I'll go thumb through it now.

    Nope. Isn't it.

    The warm up was very specific. He was listing out what cadence, heart rate, and how long he stayed in each energy zone. Then he gave a summary of why LA went through each energy system before a time trial.

    Wished I saved it. It would have been great!
