Another Easy ride which still kills the legs cus I'm out of shape.

Previewed the new 'Ontario' crit course, which is 12 miles from my house. I like it, 1 slight hill to make it harder for the linebackers and give the skinnier guys a slight tactical advantage. October 15 ferret would have a good showing on this course....ah the good ole days....

Are you going next week? It is not on our team schedule but may go out to test the equipment. Is the finish on an uphill or downhill stretch?

The finish is on a downhill. Just after turn 2 is the uphill.

I'll probably race, and get crushed but it'll be a $30 donation and a good training session. My wife will be photographing the event. I just got her a professional SLR for XMas and she plans to run a sports photography site.

I really overdid it on New Year's Eve, and the day after I was hurting in a way I haven't in probably 20 years. I'm never doing that again.

Still feeling off today. Did 2x20s and they were so hard, way harder than the 3x20s I did on Wednesday. I'm officially too old to party.

breezy, but all in all 35F and sunny is a pretty damn nice day this time of year.

i find that doing an easy spin when hungover helps to get rid of the "ugh" feeling. granted, i didn't do that yesterday and probably should have.

You forgot to mention the best part of your ride today.

Made up for a sort of monobuttocked effort yesterday (1:15 or so outside punctuated by brunch, beer and a latte, another hour inside) with 3:38 of Z2ish action today. Rode most of it with a teammate and couple other local bike folks. Saw Mikey headed the other direction at one point.

current week: 760tss, 14.5 hours, 267 miles, 16.5k climbed and a race tomorrow for which I will be thoroughly trashed. @mattm skipped out on today's race ride in which I would fall too far back and contest for best of the rest at the sprints.

90mins with 5x10min efforts between 96-99% i'm actually riding with cadence in the low 80's, as it seems I have a lot easier time with these efforts at lower cadence for some reason

On the trainer? I find my optimum cadence is lower indoors, 80ish rpms like you're saying.

Indeed, I skipped out today but will be fresh for tomorrow! #taperforeverything

Yep, indoors, I actually got the idea when I was trying to figure out why high 80's low 90s were seemingly making me fatigue more quickly
