96.2 miles for me today, meeting the team in U Village and heading up to Snohomish and back.
Bike – Klein Performance Touring 53-42 x 12-27 Sun Wheels
Breakfast – 2 eggs, bagel w/ cream cheese and an Ensure.
Ride Food – 1 powerbar, 1 bag of Shot blocks, 1 small botlle of water and 1 small bottle of HEED. (not enough)
I actually felt great on the way out and tried to run over J Dunn in the sprint at River Road but got shot out of the back so fast on the way back it made my head spin. I was able to catch the group along with John N and Kurt A but ended up off the main group as I stopped with Tony, Jeff and Gabe at a gas station so Tony could pump up his tire. I lame ducked it back with the three as I was in no shape to take a pull and then actually hit part of a break off group as it turned out there was another flat (of the 7 total). I split off from the group and road the trail at about 15 mph all by myself as I started getting shakey and my vision was in and out. It was a long ride home.
We have some serious power in the group. Alex T is always in race mode and can dust you without even trying. Gabe T is the surprise. I hope he focuses on the road racing and forgets that track stuff as he will own the road season. Greg is Greg and Tony B is a damn freight train.
I’m having so much fun right now I have a hard time not smiling. This is going to be fantastic.
Oh… Note to my teammates, LSD is Long SLOW Distance. Not hammer until people puke.
That’s for February :-)
