Jumping Farther, Skiing Faster
Just a quick update to fill you in on what I have been up to the last couple weeks. As you probably know I have been doing a bunch of road riding as usual. Definitely my favorite training activity at them moment. I was able to participate in the tour of the depot which was a two day stage race. The race had 3 stages and was a ton of fun. I finished 11th overall in the cat 4 devision. I was definitely lacking my bike legs for this race. Since that race I have participated in an RMR crit and had a ton of fun. RMR crits are great because they happen every tuesday and are a great work out. I almost was able to break away from the field but with a 100 meters to go I was reeled in by the chase group. Last week I was a participant in a sweet ride that Bill Demong put together for a bunch of like minded people. Believe it or not we had 60 people show up for an all out sufferfest. The ride was 50+ miles and easily 10,000 feet of climbing. We had several races within the ride. Each one with a great prize at the end of them. Some were Climbing TT's and others were all out flat sprints. Which appealed to wide variety of people. I know everyone had was pleased with the event and will be back in the future. Also a big thanks to Colesport for their help and support with the event. I know the products they donated kept some people on the road!
This week is an easy week for us. So it will be good to relax for a couple days and recharge and hit the pavement hard again next week. This is perfect because with the down time this week I can finish the Hunger Games Trilogy, catch up my planning for the next season and of course and most important, I can finish my coffee while still sitting on the couch. Rest weeks are awesome and they are always fully enjoyed.
