I'm gonna hit 14 this week, will likely be my second highest volume week of the year.

I don't like cycling nearly enough to put up with 20+ hours.

I've had a couple 17-18 hour weeks this entire year. I would probably do it more often if I had time but it only ever happens if I have vacation from work. I'm not sure how people consistently do 20 hour weeks while having jobs, families, adult stuffs.

In Chicago last weekend so I did 3 days of work this week. Monday was TT on the trainer, Tuesday was a challenging group ride where I just rode off the front for 80 of the 90 minutes, and Wednesday was another 16.5minute slog of my fat ass up a steep hill.

Today's recovery ride felt weird. So tired. TSS from the Monday workout was only 60 in the 1 hour on the trainer, but the soreness it produced was the worst of the 3 days. It's a full-bodied muscle fatigue with a tinge of soreness throughout the entire leg and posterior chain. Trainers are quality work for the time allotted.

"\/\" pyramid workout - 5'-4'-3'-2'-1'-2'-3'-4'-5'-4'-3'-2'-1' w/ 1' r @ an 'honest effort' for each of the work portions correlating with their length and rest available. done on a false flat out and back park entrance way loop with little traffic, though with a 25mph speed limit so I tend to get blocked by cars more often then i cared for.

felt good during the first 3'-2'-1' and was spinning like crazy, the middle 4'-5'-4' was obviously the hardest. I feel I gauged the effort about right, but being on the flat and with a probably wrong power meter means that's really the only concrete thing I have to go off of.

Cross rode to work today. Between the leaves, and other **** in life I was cursing like a sailor in the last 2 miles of it wanting nothing more than to be out of the woods. Definitely didn't help I was running high pressure over wet leaves.

No more cross please (Except the 50 mile cross ride I have planned on Sunday AND designing the Monstah Cross course)....Wait yeah so I am not finished with cross I guess. But the more I get annoyed with slipping and falling on my cross bike the more I have a desire to turn Monstah Cross into "Yes, it is a grass TT, no there are no corners greater than 30 degrees"

It occurred to me that Tuesday's 4x5's were probably my last intervals of the year. Woo!

Go get yer TT bike ready.....

But yeah, we needed someone to step up to the plate so it will be me and Mike designing it. Lets just say I intend for it to be the polar opposite of Community Cross.

Could a cross race be entirely on paved bike paths? It'd be hilarious to troll the scene by designing a crit.

Heh. Good thing Mike is there to reign you in on that! Canton II: The Return to Watts would make both him and I very sad.

We should troll the crit scene by hosting a race entirely in a field.

You misunderstand why Mike is there. He is there to suggest things so that I know to not do them.

Mike: "We should screw up this line by turning here"
Me: "Okay good to know, not doing that"

Also the course is going to be practically UCI legal, 9 feet wide at all times baby.

Going big (for me) this weekend, and looking forward to being fatigued through Tuesday of next week

Couple hours before work (5AM to 7AM). Dropped down to 32 F on the ride. So cold. I need some warmer gloves, too. Already missing the sunny 80 degree rides.

Oh dear. Even with turns, it's gonna be fast you know. Not so much elevation to work with there. Or maybe it'll be velcro grass like it Fruitlands and it will be slow and painful.

I'm pretty sure Community Cross was wide enough to be UCI legal pretty much everywhere, by the way. The one possible exception being the off-camber switchbacks around the trees 3/4 of the way through the lap.

3 x 15 minute sweet spot intervals on the trainer. 90 minutes total for 110 TSS. Feels like 250 outside.
