Way to go Ridge! the Coaching is helping?
Be much better if it didn't have 5 year old parts on it
If by helping you mean decimating my physical strength and will to get out of bed the next morning... then yes.
Seriously, his AT intervals have me working harder and drilling myself into the ground worse than any race day. We need to do some more moto-pacing when I get on a regular schedule with the workouts.
We'll do that. I had a freind I used to train with when I raced,His bit of advice among many. Race hard,Train harder. Racing should be easier than your training workouts.
There's nothing like waking up in morning and saying WTF did I do to my self. ( Sore muscles not severe hangover)
The more you hurt in training, the less you hurt racing. That little mantra has worked for me for years. Too bad its so damn tough to do on your own.
I've done both. Of the two, I prefer the sore/stiff legs feeling than queasy, gonna puke cause I drank too much feeling.
I let myself have 4 hangovers/year. I'm at 2 right now. As much as I'm riding, I don't want the other two! Interferes too much
OK, fess up. who tea bagged there saddle over the weekend?
That's definitely one of those situations where you take the bad with the good. As much as I'd like to conjure up images of a thousand naked swedish women's volleyball babes on bikes, I must face the grim reality that there's a sausage or a hundred mixed in amongst 'em... :eek1 Wonder how many of 'em used chamois butter first?
I've tried riding in boxers. I'll pass on nekkid.
There is a you tube video of the event, but I refuse to look at it...:huh Don't want to kill my images of the women swedish babes also.
If anyone is interested, this is on the Documetary Channel again, tonight. 7pm
Don't knock till you tried it, especially of your significant other is joining you
That 'knocking' part is why I won't do it again
Yea, I don't think so. It's like going to strip club with your wife. No thanks.
Sorry to hear that.
Never been to a strip club before, I have my own personal stripper, biking buddy, has her Moto License and is 100% girl
Thanks for the kind offer. Everything checks out o.k. The rear hub is fine. It's an old XTR 8 speed with the Ti casette. I expect the bottom bracket will fail but I believe it's a run of the mill un54 which costs next to nothing. I'll stick to my old parts. It's 8 speed xt rapidfires with xt front xtr rear derailluir. It's has the origanol rock shock that I added coil springs to when it was new. It's a Stump Jumper pro in the mountain dew color.
Got in almost two hours last night. Down past the ball park and back. I made the turn around at just over an hour.
The headwind I fought for that hour was now a tailwind.
Felt good to be out for a good ride again. If I can keep the 2 hour thing going every other day and on the off days walk for lunch and then sneak in an hour or so after work I'll be back to fit in no time.
These long days are great.
Hey, anybody know if ErrinV made the start of the TD?
Not sure what his real name is and I don't see anybody with his listed location on the start list: http://tourdivide.org/2011_start_list
In the meantime, I'm cheering on our local boy:
Ah, looks like he took a 1 day head start on everybody to do an individual time trial: http://tourdivide.org/2011_ITT-D_start_list
Damn, no updates until he gets back then. Good luck, ErrinV!
Well shit... http://mtbcast.com/site2/2011/06/15/mtbcast-td11-errin-vasquez-called-from-butte-to-say-hes-out/
That sucks. Our local guy: http://trackleaders.com/tourdividei.php?name=Daniel_Bayley
