90' @ z2 this morning. Finally got my act together enough to leave the house in time to get in a decent ride before work.

Enjoy! I think almost all of the roads are back to normal (except for the section by the river between Piermont and Nyack).

35-min FTP test. Looks like i'm where I was in early January of last year.

Derailed over the last couple of weeks. With a combination of colder weather (and me being wimpy), some odd back and neck pain, and my daughter starting basketball season I have found it extremely easy to miss workouts. I've jogged some been on the bike a little but not as much as I should. I also have been eating too much and not as well as I should

haven't totally figured it out yet. i know i want to try to get my 1 upgrade next year, as well as try to do something at the bigger races near me. I also have nationals, states, and a couple of local races that are kind of important to me.

8 times up the my local 1' hill. I alternated between big gear (53/13) and higher cadence (85-90 rpm). I was going to do 10 times up the hill, but at 8 I had to call it or fall off my bike. My HR was at least a good 10 bpm low. I was doing RPE 18-19 for a minute and never even hitting Z5 on HR. I'm starting to over-reach, for sure. 1 more hard ride on Saturday and then a rest week.

Oh ya, duh. Day 9 of a 10 day cycle of Augmentin for an ear infection probably isn't helping the HR response, either.

I get asked everyday why I limp so bad...
Side effect of being in shape I guess.

Epsom salt bath and ground flaxseed are your friends.
