1hr ride, with all active recovery except a 5min gun after a warmup, and a 20min FTP test with recovery in between.

Was crazy windy outside today. Must have gotten some of the wind from Irene as she passed by, even 2 hours inland.

Coach prescribed a kill yourself ride today, and so I did go out and hammer myself into so much fine powder whilst buckets of rain did get absorbed by my chammy.

37.7mi, 1:45, 2500ft of climbing, 21.5mph avg.

I'm seeing glimmers of what could have been but probably won't be for Nats. Moments of purity in pedal stroke and power output...then the lens goes out of focus.

4 days till the fingers disappear and they send me off into the bowels of pain.

Well, that hurt. 101 miles 4:35. Another teammate and I stayed with the group for 65 miles then stopped to refill. I lost a bottle at about 20 miles. It was half frozen. I don't think anybody hit it thankfully. Fred note: that was my first official century.

The fast guys did the route in 4:09 I think.

Short version: in yesterday's Vacaville GP M123 race I got caught behind a crash and had to dig like mad to catch the back of the remaining pack. Held on for less than a lap, and then blew up and was popped off. Race failure, but training success: personal bests in max, 10s, 20s, 1min., and 5 min. power. God, I love NorCal Masters racing. :eyeroll:

Saturday - 2 hours mostly endurance pushing it a little bit on some hills. Legs have felt better.
Sunday - off
Today - 1 hr of mostly endurance. Legs felt a lot better than Saturday. Gorgeous morning. Best morning ride since last fall. I like these rides

Monday: Yoga
Today: 1:45; 2*20' TH intervals, 99% & 97% of FTP respectively; 8 "lightpole to lightpole jumps" on the way in. Body Pump tonight at the YMCA.
Tomorrow: 90 mins SST with a few 1' 53*11 standing surges to simulate the hills for this coming weekend's races.

Think I finally found my recipe for training in the summer Florida heat: (1) train in the AM before sun rises too high, and (2) 10-15 minutes before ride, thoroughly soak jersey with water, put in freezer, put it on right before ride...seems to delay the onset of dripping sweat for about 30 minutes...

lol, it's just a GIS for "Brazilian" so there's nothing there, other than the fact that Google has a dirty mind

The URL has nothing dangerous in it.
