Well kiss my grits. Not only did I feel super good on the first TT, I also nailed a PR for this year :-)
Results can be seen here
16:00 at an average of 293 watts. AAAH just 6 tenths of a second from breaking 16!
Don’t ask me, after last night, I have absolutely NO idea how I pulled that off. Maybe it’s the 2 pounds I lost in one day. Maybe it’s the fact I was finally riding my BMC again (with those fancy dancy Rotor Rongs). Maybe I’m just getting faster… who knows?
The second TT was a little bit more dramatic because the first mile I couldn’t even get over 250 watts and I almost got off the bike. Then Greg yelled at me so I tried to focus on power and my breathing. By the end I passed him and put down a 16:15 at 283 watts average and that REALLY surprised me because of how bad my start was. It was a good night and I really needed it after last night.
Speaking of last night, I got a call from Anthony’s and they were really nice to me. I wanted them to know that I didn’t contact them to yell or scream but to see if anyone else had gotten sick because if they had I would have gone into the doctor. Turns out I was the only one, the manager was going to send me a little something in the mail for my trouble (which I told him not to but he’s going to anyway) and Ro and I will be back. I LOVE Anthony’s food and I am sure that I just over did it (who me?)
My stomach is feeling much better, just sore muscles front and back. I was pretty thirsty all day, my eyes were pretty dry but a couple bottles of Endurox and a bunch of cups of water made me feel right as rain.
