The winter fur.
Saturday was warm & not too windy. Got out for ride #5 of 2011. Another 2 hrs @ a Normalized Power of 214. Other than that nothing special. I did do 20 secs @ 418 watts sprinting away from a dog (638 for 5 sec, 566 for 10 sec). My HR never got over 150 in those 20 seconds so thats something I guess. No rush for fitness for me anyway. If I race more than 3x this summer it will be a miracle.
Granted I'm only up to Ride#5 but I've been on the bike for 21 straight days. That is till Friday. All the OT & commuting wore me out. I had a DR. apt Friday so decided instead of making myself so tired I get sick I drove to work Thursday night. Actually drove to work twice. Got to work realized I left my work keys in my bike bag so had to head home & get them. No keys means no uniform & no tool box access, can't have either of those.
I'm about to do something really stupid. Going to go and "race" the Frozen Waffles Race Training race in a few hours. The stupid part? Take your pick: I'm on ride 5 of the year, or the biggie, I have to go to work tonight(just an hour or two after the race). Stupid I know. Luckily the Master's race is only 44 miles(will also be longest ride of year so far) so hopefully I can race & get home. I might pull the cord early though if I think I'm gonna be wore out for work.
I have laid off the coffee for the last month. Decided today would be a good day to end that with all going on today & tonight. Hello mass amounts of caffeine.
