I was able to squeeze a workout in on Tuesday at the crit course. The legs felt like shit but I did 45' @ 90% with one 15' interval in there at FTP. We're doing a little stopover for Xmas in KY then headed out tomorrow for SLC. I'm looking forward to a week of skiing hard, riding hard and living large in my sis-in-law's McMansion.

Went to pull the bike down for tonights ride and...broken spoke. How does one break a spoke with a bike just hanging by a hook? I can't really complain as I have 12k miles on that wheel. Anyway, plan B was to grab my old PT Pro wheel that has about 20+k miles on it. I've been lending this out to power newbies but now that I have it back it seems to be reading about 30w low.

Slept in then putzed around and finally got out for a ride after lunch. It was just over 40˚ and not really that horrible but I did need to keep the intensity turned up a notch to stay warm. I just rode all the way out Bluff Rd via the swamp to 601 then turned around and headed back. Simple ride.

The wind was howling today but the 70+ temps were nice. I did the usual at the crit course for 60' with the huge tailwind up the final stretch @ 27mph...very hard not to go over FTP with those conditions. The backside, downhill...18mph and I was close to needing my small ring! Legs a little tired from yesterday but PE was pretty much in line.

The bad thing about feeling sick is that at a point you're not sure if you're still sick or just feeling like crap from not riding/exercising. That's where I was and I'm glad it was raining today so I could just get on the Velodyne and cruise. I warmed up for a bit then did 45' at around 90ish %. It was pretty easy but I felt 100% better after doing it.

I was going to do a morning workout today but woke up at 4:30 with a sore throat and bad head...sortof half sick. I stayed home from work and basically just laid around all day to hopefully head off anything that may be developing. Should be good to go this weekend.

I totally didn't want to ride today but with rain on the way I forced myself to go. Ended up with a solid hour at the usual .9 IF. I just felt blah...sortof dead legs and it felt way harder than it should have. Luckily I had some good tunes and after I got going I had a few spells where I felt just ok.
