dee pain dee pain

I went for a run on Sunday...25 min at a fast walk pace. Monday I couldn't straighten my right leg all the way, overall pain in the legs hovered at a 7/10...it got better though. Today Chris and I did 2 hours and I did a 20 min interval at FTP with her on my wheel. Karl met up with us and we cruised in...Next run planned for tomorrow.

Alison Krauss and Robert Plant...Amazing

On the wagon

It's always hard to tell how you're gonna feel after some time off the bike but saturday was a pretty sweet day--the legs felt good. Perfect temps and about a 3 hour ride, a good group too. Today I did an easy loop in the fort with the island crew. Now after a couple of hours of chasing Dorothy and toto around the Halloween at the zoo I'm hitting the vino pretty hard...

burnin kj

a little over 3 hours today so that's 3340kj for the last 2 days...should more than offset the beer I'm gonna drink tonight.

on a lighter note...or not:

BUSH: …I believe in private medicine, not the federal government running the healthcare system…

STEWART: Yes, I don’t think there’s an uninsured kid out there who wants to be suckered into some slippery slope socialized medicine scheme. These kids don’t want the government telling them what they can or cannot die from. It’s just wrong.

Tonight riding over to the crit I had this "uh-oh" kindof feeling...the legs felt like crap. Warming up my RPE was high and the legs felt heavy so I did a little effort to try to clear em out. 1 minute at 300w...Big "uh-oh" This was not going to be good.

So I basically sat in most of the night (while everyone else chased Karl, Jay and Charles), I did a few half hearted efforts then almost sat up at 1 lap to go but decided to at least sprint a little...I actually went pretty well on the final sprint (for starting at last wheel). I passed a lot of people at least so that was fun. Then I rode tempo home to get some exercise and beat the darkness.

I'm out of town the next 2 tuesdays so that's it for the racing for me this year...The saturday ride is now at 9am at the circle.
