I hope this was in good spirits. I have to believe that it is.
WR does a heckuva lot with very little from my perspective. Am I Right?

I wonder if there'd be any tips in there on how I could cut out my lunch rides and maintain fitness.

Each stroke with purpose
The display smiles
Strength comes.

The road has been empty
One man arrives
In orange and blue.

The sound of WR's second hour of training each day? It is the sound of one hand clapping.

I don't really grasp the need to ask such a question. Philisophically it's the way he trains. Since it's my 'career' and I may have to alter my training volume the topic interests.

Well, with a potential volume reduction coming for you, I'm happy to share my weekly rides, if you're interested.

I really do have to "get over myself" when I'm not feeling like doing a scheduled ride though. I don't allow myself very many "bad days." The nice thing is that with 8.25 hrs/wk, I'm not so stressed, so bad days are rare. That said, I cut the hill repeats short today because a meal mistake and fatigue from yesterday -- bad day.

Yeah, I'm very interested. While I'll certainly be riding more than 8 hours a week I imagine that keeping up mid 20 hour weeks will become difficult.
