My parents are in town so we've been eating out every meal...I've consumed a shit load of calories this weekend but did get some riding in.

Good job to JB for a strong IMAZ. He killed the bike leg averaging over 22mph for 112 miles and probably paid for it on the run.

Crit Course: 1x70' at 91%
Legs were a little blocked at the start but once I got going they were like little metronomes. Good sensations, time went fast. New ceramic bearings felt smooth. Enjoyed just rolling at the crit course in the dark with no lights and Moby cranked on the iPod. Sortof surreal. Flatted right at the end and just rode the carbon for the last 30" (ouch!) Luckily my interval ended 3' from my house.
You may ask...why 70'? I have no good answer except that most people do 60' ;-) and if you can get to 60' at 90% why not do an extra 10'? 20'? 30'? More=better.

wow...what a day to be outside. I did 3 hrs or so with the group and tried stay on the front as much as possible and ride at or near 90% or so. It was hard to tell cuz my PT had a flat so I rode julie's Rolf Vigors...and I had good legs today and the PE was very low. I probably was hitting my FTP a lot.

This week has sucked weather wise so the last 2 days were on the velodyne. Did about a 15' warmup then an hour at around 90% each day. Got through the latest Fast and Furious which sucked as a movie but was entertaining for someone that produces testosterone.

First of all a huge congrats to Aaron Trent who won the silver medal at the Para World Championships in England today. Noone trained harder this year.
I haven't been able to train that much this week as my wife has H1N1 and has literally been in bed for the last 3 days. I got my vaccine so hopefully I'll be spared. It's a nasty bug. So I've been doing the parenting duties solo and today I walked into work with my t-shirt on inside out...that pretty much sums it up.

Man, it got dark fast tonight. My ultimate light is being milled right now by a friend out in Utah.
