Raced adequately (first evar road race), but I re-pulled my hamstring. So now I'll be taking the next few days off, maybe a easy peasy z1 roller session. I don't need a lingering injury all season long.

Something as simple as shifting in the saddle sent me way into z4 and soft pedaling while getting a bottle, taking a drink and returning it and my HR dips down to mid-z2. Kind of frustrating.

Got a 13 hr week planned and a 15 hr week next week before a rest week.
After rest week going make the switch to concentrated threshold intervals, lower volume and higher intensity.

Perfect in time for race season ramping up and for me to finally get a freakin' job.

good ride, but on tired legs I wasn't motivated to stay out in the weather with no protection.
did some cornering, did some hills, did 90'.

I did it with in the saddle climbing. Obviously I'm still learning how to pedal. But I have been stretching it. A little ice/heat might be a good idea. It already feels better today, but it felt good last Friday when I re-tweaked it too.

It's not my whole hamstring; it feels like one cord about the thickness of a pencil on the outside of my left hamstring. Oddly, it didn't bother me after the 3rd lap of my race, but later that night I could feel it getting grumpy.

Does it run the whole length, or sort of just by the knee?

The whole length. From the arse/leg crease nearly to the knee pit or whatever you call it.

Stitch on the left side of my bike. Advil helping a bit. Day off. Even leaning over the bars and soft-pedaling hurt.

62 minutes of hotel room intervals, because anybody can do 60 minutes.

No. I don't think there was a crash in the race that I entered. My back was a little sore all week; the race heightened things a bit.

Oy, no experience with that sort of thing. I suppose just stretch the bastd. Stand up and cross your ankles, then try to touch your toes. Don't bounce. 3X15sec each leg or so. http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:A...eqkRb_s31TGM2z Do that as well, and lean your torso forward until you can feel your butt and upper back leg stretching. Same deal, 3X15sec both legs. There are a bunch of other stretches you can do as well, but those are the easiest (as in, you don't have to get down on your floor to do em).

Today, I do 4hrs of z2. I've been told not to eat after 1.5hrs in, as this is a metabolism boosting ride. Methinks that be crazy, so I'm going to eat like normal and simply reap the benefits of a 4hr endurance ride.

I have 2 hours of z2 on tap for tonight myself.

Did some squats and core work last night. It's amazing how a few days of no training because of a flu can set a guy back. Soooo weak.

My training today:

Local hammer ride starts up again now that Daylight Savings is now back in business.

Also, got a new-used SRAM Force group that I'll be figuring out how to install all day. Got a really sweet deal from my buddy who took it off his Jelly Belly bike.

Force Shifters and Derailleurs: $150 shipped
Rival Crankset and new BB: $80
SRAM Force Chain and Cassette: $80



I cut that sticker and stuck it on there.

rode 45 min at about 150w. typical trainer ride for me albeit a bit short. I need a new DVD player though, starting to skip/freeze on the netflix DVDs. I should do some longer rides but feel like I have no time.

It wasn't just pedaling. At times, it was chasing her. My cadence sensor is on the fritz, but I was frequently spinning the 50x11 trying to keep up...with her 52x11. In retrospect, it was good training, but man, that hurt.

Back still a bit sore, but, kept the gearing low to keep the pressure off during a ride for 1:45. My instincts say that I should try to smartly work through this. If that doesn't work, I'll take some time off.
