Who says Monday's suck?

Slept in. Drank some coffee. Watched Paris-Nice on the Web. Ate a couple of cinnamon rolls. Drank more coffee. Caught up on Facebook, Twitter, & Google Reader. Now listening to Blip.FM drinking more coffee & blogging. Then off to Lowe's & an afternoon recovery ride.

Good weekend of riding. Sucks its my last weekend off for a month now that the spring races have started. Guess that means more training time.

Saturday after a nap got out for an impromptu FTP test in shorts & a short sleeve jersey! F Yeah! Surprised myself with a 15 watt increase. Guess all the training & weight loss is working.

Sunday met THE Espenkotter on the Highroad for some TT training. 45 miles of hills & TT bike time & my legs were SHOT! I pulled the plug on the planned 4th lap. It would have gotten ugly in a hurry. Still a great day of training.

If anyone is planning on doing the OCC Highroad TT I recommend using a TT bike with Deep dish wheels & a min of 11-25 cassette. I think the winning time will be low 38. I work the night before so its pretty doubtful I'll go. Though it is close & a good course for me.....hmmm
